Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Donate your money, time, blood, platelets .... Red Cross helping people around the world
Ami Simms is such an amazing woman and quilter. And she certainly has made a huge impact for Alzheimer's research. I totally respect her reasons for stepping down, but I am a bit surprised that the reins aren't being handed down to someone else though to carry on, but then again, what do I know about the intricacies of running an organization like this.
Anyway, I wish Ami all the best and hope that one million dollar milestone is reached by the end of the year!
I agree. Learned about this today and have to check on all those priority quilts I've been considering buying. I have already purchased 11 and was ready to make some myself. Perhaps some of those volunteers who work so hard for AAQI will consider continuing Ami's efforts.
Yes I was disheartened as well. At the same time I was amazed at all the hours the volunteers have put in; scanning quilts and updating the website as new quilts came in.
Don't worry spider.
I keep house
I donate quilts to the AAQI.
I am very sorry to hear this. Sorry so much work and dedication will be lost. My mother had AAQQI. I have been off of the computer for 2 months. Mine crashed. So DH has me up again .Really missed this QB.
