  • Suitable for: anyone who knows how to sew
  • Tutor: Diane will be on hand but it’s a join-in session rather than a tutored workshop.
  • Materials: We will try and beg some material from our suppliers. Bring in your odd buttons, zips, scraps of fake fur etc.

Fidget Blankets are tactile quilts designed for people with dementia. With lots of unique additions and different textures, e.g zips, lace, bells, buttons, different types of fabric and lots of colour, they provide pleasure and calm to people with dementia. These blankets will be given to charity and will distributed to those who would benefit from having one.

There are three drop-in Thursday afternoons where you can join in making Fidget Blankets. Dates are: 29th March, 26th April and 24th May, 1.30pm till 4pm. No fee. Your time only.
