As part of its charity work, OVQG gives touch quilts to Alzheimer patients at the Civic Hospital and the Glebe Centre (among others). You can also make one for a friend, relative, or yourself. Touch quilts are fun to make and fun to fidget with. This workshop has four things you can do:

* If you've never made a touch quilt, we will show you how.

* If you want help making any of the 35 toy and texture blocks shown on we will help you. Just bring the fabric called for under Cut in the block instructions.

* If you are interested in helping to make a crazy touch quilt, we can do that. We already have two crazy blocks made. I think we can finish the quilt at the workshop.

* You can simply gather the makings and sew with your friends.

OVQG provides a good supply of textured fabrics and backing materials. Please note: that we are always grateful for donated fabrics and embellishments. Bring your lunch, sewing machine, supplies, and if you want, fabric for the toy blocks.
