Mixed Emotions, Full view

My Alzheimer's Quilt, Mixed Emotions came home after touring the US the last five years. The exhibit, Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece was seen by over 200,000 people. The quilt reflects hearbreaking experiences and effects of Alzhiemer's on my MIL. Sadly, she is no longer with us.

A CD and book were sold highlighting the quilts and the stories of the quilts.

The 112-page full color book, Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece, with photographs of all the quilts in the exhibit was completely sold out. A computer CD narrated by the artists is for sale at http://www.alzquilts.org/cd.html    All profits from the sale of the CD and book is used to fund Alzheimer's research.
