Fidget Quilts is an ongoing community program reaching out for those men and woman afflicated with Dementia or Alzheimers. Fidget quilts are about keeping hands and fingers busy; they are all about texture! Many of these quilts are adorned with zippers, snaps, closures, buttons, ties, bows, ribbons, pockets, pom poms, braids, and more...
A more recent endeavor for our Guild is creating Fidget Quilts which are very small tactile lap quilts. They are donated to Alzheimer patients and children with ADD. QGbtS delivered fifty-eight (58) quiilts this year vs. seventy-eight in 2018. Demand for our fidget quilts continues to grow.
Guild members of all abilities are welcome to participate in making these quilts that need be no bigger than lap size or as small as a placemat.
