Altzheimers Art Quilt Initiative

Has anyone heard of this?

I have been aware of it for a while but have never gotten round to taking a look at what it is all about- even though we had a relative who ended up with this problem.
Today, I took a look and thought I would share the web address with you.

Here it is:    www.alzquilts.org/

There are some touching videos there as well as information about the quilts that have been made in memory of Altzheimers victims- and sometimes their carers.

All I can say is there but for the grace of God, go I - and hope that I never become a victim.
