Volunteer To Be a Drop-Off Center for the AAQI

If you are a quilt shop and you would like to support the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative by acting as a "drop-off" center for Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts you must agree to ship registered quilts Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts to the address we provide to you promptly on the 1st and 15th day of each month. If those days fall on a day the post office is closed, then ship the next day it is open.

Here are other ways you can participate:
  • (optional) Offer discounts to customers on the days they turn in their quilts for shipping.

  • (optional) Offer free product and technique demos geared toward 9" x 12" sized quilts.

  • (optional) Offer block of the month selections for 9" x 12" sized quilts, or smaller.

  • (optional) Hold clothesline quilt shows of Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts in the days just before shipping to raise awareness and honor quilt donors.

  • (optional) Collect Viewer's Choice ballots ($1 a vote) for Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts displayed in their shop, sending it to the AAQI with the quilts.

  • (optional) Offer a space for "Priority Bees" to meet in their shops for sit 'n sews to make Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts.
