In late 2012 a challenge was issued to the members of the Helena Quilters' Guild
in Helena, Mt, to create a Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. Members had until May 2013 to finish their creations in time to display them at the bi-annual quilt show. Money, which will be donated to AAQI, was raised at the show in a voter donation for their favorite quilt.
The Helena Quilters' Guild began with a handful of quilters in 1981. Today the guild consists of around 65 members from beginners to the more advanced quilter, from traditionalists to art quilters. Our mission is to promote an understanding for all aspects of quilting. Throughout the year the guild makes and donates quilts to numerous local charities.
