If you know anyone, who might know someone, who might know someone, you get
the idea, please pass this on.

Thanks!

Fellow Quilters/crafters:

I have an urgent message to pass along, from a fellow guild member, Irene,
in Dallas Texas.  I have set up a website for you to view two quilts which
were stolen from a show.  I'll let her tell you the rest.  Please, please,
take a few seconds to visit http://rampages.onramp.net/~cc/alz_quilt.html
and pass it on to anyone you can.  If you have any info, please send it to

"'Alzheimer's, Missing Pieces' was a personal catharsis for me, because of
the anger I had when my mother-in-law was diagnosed as having Alzheimer's
disease.  It depicts the slow disappearance of her memories, until finally
there is no one left.  The quilt is machine peiced and hand quilted."

"The Memory Quilt is composed of 60 squares.  Each square is done by family
members of Alzheimer's patients.  These squres depict many personal
memories of families.  Some squares have personal materials of the A.D.
patient incorporated as part of each square.  It is a quilt top with no
batting or backing."

"The quilts have been missing since they were taken from the Dallas North
Park Mall office, by a young lady who represented herself as being from the
Alzheimer's Association.  The disappearance occured between Thanksgiving
and the 1st week in December."

"Thank you again for your help.  I feel if anything brings these quilts
back, it will be due to the help of my friends."

I am so sorry you quilts were taken.  Nothing is sacred to anyone anymore.  My
Mother is in a nursing home here in Dallas.  She has dementia, but if you
loose your memory it really doesn't matter what it is called.  It is the
most devistating thing I have ever had to deal with.  It absolutely breaks
your heart.  The people who are paid to take care of her steal from her.  They
take her clothes, shoes, night gowns, brushes, combs, perfume, anything and
everything.  People have no scruples anymore.  I hope you find your quilts, it
hard to beleive anyone would take something like that.  I am so sorry.
