You can still place quilts in your shopping cart temporarily as you decide which ones you really, really, really want. Just know that putting them in there doesn't make it impossible for another shopper to buy them out from under you.
Once an order is placed, however, those quilts are off the market.
You’ll notice an error message telling you a particular quilt is “unavailable” should you desire a quilt someone else has already ordered. But, you can always email an AAQI volunteer just to be sure.
When quilts are processed, they will be marked as SOLD and the buy button will be removed. After a few days they will be removed from the web page and sorted into the Sold Quilts pages.
The exhibit will hang at the DeVos Place Convention Center, 303 Monroe Avenue NW in Grand Rapids.
The AAQI is asking everyone who attends the AQS show to make sure they get stickered and to FaceBook a photo of their sticker.
"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.
These small quilts 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.
