Today is your last chance to bid on the 37 vintage quilts (translation: “old and used”) in an online auction that ends tonight. The Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative is holding a special mid-month auction to turn these quilts into research dollars. Can you help?
Bidding is easy, albeit slow. It’s a silent auction, and each bid is read by a real person. Her name is Diane. And I’d like her to get a boatload of bids on the last day of the auction which is today (Thursday, June 25th)! You’ve got until 10 p.m. tonight EDT time. (We have clocks on the web page so you’ll know exactly what time that is.) All profits from the auction will be used to fund Alzheimer’s research.
Here’s where you bid: www.alzquilts.org/viquac.html
If you already have enough quilts send this post to someone who could use one or two more. If you send it on, leave a comment on the blog with the number of people who you told about this auction. Let’s see how far afield this little announcement can get. Thanks for spreading the word!

It already arrived in Europe.
I woke up this morning thinking I’d missed the deadline. Woot! One more day to try.
Ami, kudos to you for your quilt descriptions. They make each and every quilt come alive with their own personality and history.
Make they all be loved in their new homes.
