I want to show the CD at our guild meeting, or as a training aid to my employees, or use it in my school classroom. Can I do that?
You have to ask first and get my permission in writing. Otherwise that is a violation of the copyright.

I want all my friends to see this! Can I make copies of the disk?
Absolutely not. No way. Not on your life. Uh-uh. If you do I will hunt you down andÖ.

Here's What People Are Saying About The CD!

Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece brought tears. That is so what has happened to mama. She canít cook anymore, or knit or crochet, or play on the computer. She cries 'cause she canít remember. She wanders the house, canít remember her room or who we are at times. Piece by piece she is loosing who she was and what she loved. Thank you for putting it into words.
I've just finished viewing it for the first of what I'm certain will be many times. How beautifully and poignantly many of the artists have captured what each of us who has been a care giver to a loved one with Alzheimer's has felt.

I was privileged to see this wonderful exhibit at The Road to California show this past week-end. Like the people who could only view two or three quilts/stories at a time on the CD, I found I had to walk away from the exhibit from time to time. But each time I went back until I had seen the entire exhibit. It was such an emotional experience. I am currently dealing with what these people have dealt with. My father is leaving us bit by bit. I am so grateful to know about the CD. I am very anxious to receive it. Although I may not be able to look at it all at once I will be so happy knowing I have it and can view it when I am able. I think the suggestion of a book is a terrific one. Quilting is such a huge comfort for me I canít tell you how grateful I am to learn that the activity I love so much is involved in such a worth while cause. I should have known! Thank you for all of your work.

I received the CD today and just finished watching it. I smiled a little and I cried a lot. It was one year ago today that my wife died with Alzheimer's. Thank you again for what you are doing.
We showed your CD on the Alzheimer's quilts to some friends the other night and we all cried, and identified, and when we couldn't take it anymore, we turned it off to resume another day, It is a very powerful story of heroism, love, caring, sadness, resiliency, HOPE and understanding. I thought I could watch and listen to the whole thing much easier the second time, but it was even more emotional because I knew what was coming with each eloquent quilt explanation. It is hard to understand how your CD makes me feel better after watching it. Maybe it's because a better understanding of the horrors of Alzheimer's and the brave souls who rally against it makes it more personal and allows me to feel a camaraderie with so many others. I can't explain it fully. I can tell you unequivocally, however, that watching your CD is a valuable and unique experience that everyone should have.

WOW! How absolutely wonderful - what a tribute to all these special people - the quilters and the people with AD. Thank you for what you have done. You are an inspiration.

The words to describe your CD aren't in my vocabulary! I was absolutely blown away by the creative, genius abilities of all the contributors...their beautiful expressions, not just of their artistic sewing skills, but the poignant words of love and sorrow each was able to convey speaking from their hearts.

Ami, these stories and photos must be published in a book form as soon as possible. There are so many people that I want to share this with that don't have computers and a book, as wonderful as your CD would produce, begs to be owned by many and read numerous times, for strength and comfort, knowing what others have gone through and to share some of their sorrow.

I have a friend whose mother had Alzheimers and I don't think I appreciated what she went through until I heard all the stories on the CD. Good luck on collecting lots and lots of dollars for research.
Wow. My daughter and I got through about 3 pieces together. Then we had to stop for the day. You have done a remarkable job, and brought together a heartbreaking, inspirational exhibit. I wish my mom, who suffered so while taking care of my dad, could see this.

I am forwarding information about the show to my minister friend. When her dad had this disease, she used to say "I tell myself, this is not my father, this is someone who is related to the man I knew; I care for him in honor of my father, who is gone."
My CD arrived this afternoon; everything else was put on hold and I sat down at my computer. It is marvelous! You touched on every emotion and ended with hope. Thank you for all your time and effort on behalf of all of us who have been touched by Alzheimer's disease. I can't wait to see this spectacular show in person!

The CD/Catalogue is very well done...I was struck by how different the stories start out but how, at the end, they are all alike. Some very moving pieces and moving quotes. You are a fantastic curator!
