Jane Roszell will lead us through a Touch Quilts workshop. These quilts, also known as Sensory Activity Blankets, are small lap quilts to be be donated to the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities.
They provide sensory and tactile stimulation for restless or “fidgety” hands of someone with developmental challenges. They give comfort, and relax hearts and minds. Quilts are pieced from fabrics with a variety of textures and colours, and accented with simple accessories, such as pockets, laces, trims, appliques, buttons, secured beads, ribbons, braids etc. for added interest.
All supplies provided.
All are welcome. Come out for a fun day and learn new applications for your quilting skills!
Bring your sewing machine, scissors and strong thread, and your lunch.
