Calling all those who love sewing! During Lent this year a few people are making ‘Fidget Quilts’ for Alzheimers/dementia sufferers. A small quilt which sits on your lap has sewn on it many different textures and activities, which anxious fingers can explore and experience. It can even be individualised to suit the interests of each person. For example items to do with fishing for a fisherman, items focused on cats for the cat lover. If you would be interested in joining in either at home on your own or at a workshop together with others, please contact Carol Preston on 07925 287870 or email@example.com
