Olivia did a sewing camp through the Greensboro 4-H last week. She spent 5 full days learning how to pick fabrics and sew by hand and machine. The made these little quilts called "fidget quilts." They have various items sewn on them that can be touched and manipulated. Generally this kind of quilt is for babies to play with, but they sometimes use them with Alzheimer's patients because the activity can be calming and stimulate brain activity.
She had a lot of fun and is now begging to go to the fabric store so she can start on a new project at home. :)
