Good News, Sad News

My quilt, "Shattered," which is in the traveling exhibition Alzheimer's: Forgetting Piece by Piece was once again chosen to be featured to advertise a venue. I'm always surprised when this happens because I feel my quilt is not the best or the strongest quilt. Please don't get me wrong, it does make me happy and I am always appreciative. This time it was featured on Now for the sad news, there is no attribution. No one looking at this online news source will know that I made the quilt and it is something that should have been done. You don't use someone's work without crediting it. I know Ami Simms is upset. I know she insists on attribution so I'll be a little sad but mostly I'll be happy. The more people see this exhibit the better and if my quilt helps make this happen, it's all good.


  1. Did you try to contact the people, perhaps thru the phone number mentioned in the article? You have a copyright, I guess they would respect it if they were aware of it.

  2. RiverWoods said that they were sorry for the "oversight." I don't want to make this too much of an issue. I've also contact the publication and had not heard back yet because they really should have known better. I'll keep you posted.


Love comments! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
