I'm on TV!

Well, internet TV, but still . . . it's a real show, shot in a studio with lights, cameras and action and a live studio audience (I'm in the far left corner - you can hardly see me) in Boulder. I hope you can take the time to watch the whole thing so you can see why I love Ami and why I spend so much of my time volunteering for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. There's a picture of my Mom looking at my sister Beth Hartford's quilt towards the beginning . . . a silhouette of Dad on a sunset. Also, in the "after show" they did a slide show and there's a picture of me with Dad and a picture of a couple of the name quilts I collected names for and quilted.

Episode 712 of The Quilt Show

Click here to watch the trailer for Episode 712.

For those of you who don't already know, The Quilt Show, starring Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims is an online quilting show. They (collectively and personally) have been very supportive of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.

My sister Beth Hartford and I flew to Boulder for the taping of this show. We, along with Susan Pain and Kathy Kennedy-Dennis, were "roadies" for Ami Simms. The show was REALLY well done, it was fascinating to be behind the scenes, and Ami was terrific! The show explained a bit about what the AAQI does and why we do it, and unveiled a part of the new travelling exhibit Alzheimer's Illustrated: From Heartbreak to Hope.
