A Message From Ami Simms!

Ruth and I just priced your quilts today. They will have BUY buttons on them and be up on the sale page as well as your newly created group challenge page probably by the end of the day.
Please ask your membership to tell their family and friends---that's the best way to sell these quilts and convert them into research dollars.
Please give everyone a hug from me.
Ami :)
As Ami mentioned, the quilts from our Polka Dot and Plaid Competition now have their own webpage on the AAQI website and will soon be available for sale (if they aren't already).  The following link will take you directly to the Polka Dot and Plaid Competition page...

Guest Speaker -- Valeria Hill

The guest speaker at the guild's November meeting was Valeria Hill, who spoke about the process of fabric dyeing and about the use of hand-dyed fabrics in quilts. She brought along some of her quilts for all to see in person.

For more info on Val and her quilting, check out her website.

Thank you, Val, for an inspiring evening!
