Fabric Postcards for ALS research

Fabric postcards for the Hopes and Dreams for a Cure art and quilt exhibit are starting to come in! In our last blog we shared exciting news that a Virginia Beach, Virginia art gallery will feature the Hopes and Dreams quilts and fabric postcards sent in from all over the United States to benefit those living with ALS and raise funds for research. We are hoping to have a wonderful selection of fabric postcards to sell at the exhibit. 100% of sales from quilts and fabric postcards, and a portion of art and jewelry sales will go toward ALS research.

We have some exciting news to share with you, and while it is quick notice, we think you might want to participate.  The Hopes & Dreams for a Cure for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/ Lou Gehrig’s Disease), has been given the opportunity to have a month-long Celebration of Moms and the special women in our lives beginning the first weekend in May – just in time for Mother’s Day .

The Richard Stravitz 30th Street Gallery on Pacific Avenue in Virginia Beach, VA, will be hosting an event that features quilts sent in from all over the United States to benefit those living with ALS, as well as raise much needed funds for ALS Research. The Hopes & Dreams for a Cure for ALS art and quilt exhibit opens Saturday, May 4, will be open Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12 and runs through Saturday, June 1st.

 In addition to the quilts, there will be artwork capturing the loving essence of women in the form of oil paintings, watercolors and inks, jewelry, mixed media, hand blown glass and bronzed sculptures.
