Come and make a Fidget Blanket!

Our second Fidget Blanket workshop is happening in store on Thursday 26th April! Join us and make a Fidget Blanket that could make life easier for someone with dementia, by giving them lots of attachments to occupy their hands.

Drop in between 1.30pm and 4pm. There is no fee, and Diane, our tutor, will demonstrate how to make a small quilt with added tactile interest.
