Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you know that I am going to be teaching a BFBCC class at the church across the street on Sept. 22. 9-3:30 Bring any of the patterns that you want to work on or let me know if you need one. I can take 6-8 students. I am going to charge $20. You will buy your pattern if you don't already have one. This first day you will make your top so you won't need your sewing machine. Each pattern is different so some may be easier and faster than others. I have open sews if you want to come back and work on it again or start to do the sewing. The first one after the date of the 22nd will be Oct. 13. It is a Sat. Open sew days are $8. Please let me know if you are interested by Sept.1 Email or give me a call with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org

I joined a group called Art Abandonment on Facebook.. It started last week and has now grown to over 3500 artist. You leave your piece of art someplace where someone will find it. I made my first drop yesterday at Best Buy.. I left this altered ( larger ) playing card which I put in a clear envelope on a stove... This is what we put on the artwork. Many people have found the artwork of some of the artists and have sent messages to them. If you are interested in the group do a facebook search for Art Abandonment. This is a gift!!! It has been secretly placed here among everyday items simply for you to discover and enjoy. I am one of the many artists who want to share a small slice of what we love to do. If you are so inclined, please send a message to this address to inform us of it's fate.

Heartbreak to Hope
"Heartbreak to Hope"
"Alzheimer's Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope" continues its five-year journey across the United States with a stop at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival XXII, February 23-26, 2012.
The exhibit will hang at the Hampton Roads Convention Center (Greater Chesapeake Bay / Williamsburg Area).
Show hours are 10 am to 6 pm Thursday - Saturday; 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday.
"Alzheimer's Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope" is an exhibit of quilts about Alzheimer's sponsored by the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). Fifty-four small format art quilts (9" x 12") illustrate the disease from a variety of perspectives. They hang among 182 "Name Quilts," each 6 inches wide and 7 feet tall, which carry the names of more than 10,000 individuals who have/had Alzheimer's or a related dementia. The names of loved ones, written on fabric patches by family members and friends, honor the 5.4 million Americans in the United States struggling with Alzheimer's disease.
