Fidget Quilt Sew In @ It's Sew Tempting ~ Sponsored by the Ames Quilt Guild

Come join us for all day, or just part of the day, as we gather together to make small activity quilts
to help our neighbors suffering from dementia.

These quilts will be donated locally to the Household of Bethany and the Mary Greeley Medical Center.

These fun and engaging quilts are designed to help patients, with dementia, get through what is called sun downers syndrome, or sun downers. This neurological phenomenon is typical in these patients, as it causes them to become very agitated and confused in the evening hours, hence it's name sun downers.

Fidget quilts help to keep these folks safely seated with something to fidget with; to calm their minds, their hands, their hearts, and ease their fears and anxieties.

If you aren't sure you want to come, because you've never made one before, or don't know what to bring, never fear! Instructions as well as all the materials you will need will be provided for you!

  • What will you be doing?

    Great question! You will either be sewing the very basic quilt bases together, or sewing the fidget items on.
