Mats Being Made in Fuquay Varina, NC

Pat Bailey, a member of Fuquay Varina Baptist Church in Fuquay Varina, NC, sent us this photo of some of the mats she and her group have made.  She reports that so far they have donated 42 to a home for memory loss patients and they have another 45 ready for distribution. That is indeed an impressive amount of mats.

We commend you and your helpers for your charitable work. Thank you for sharing your photo.

Fidget Mats Promoted in Hayden, Idaho

Members of the quilt guild in Hayden, Idaho have decided to encourage sewers to make "Fidget Mats and other aids" by including a poster in their education booth at their upcoming quilt show. Their "Quilt Fiesta" will be June 26 & 27 in Hayden, Idaho. This booth will replace previous live demonstrations. The demonstrations were only available to visitors at specified times. Now all visitors can receive information.

Information includes pictures of fidget mats/aprons, purpose of the aids, links to Marcia's segment on Nancy's Corner and the link to instructions for contacting our blog which has the instructions for our mats and other aids.

It is exciting to see our project spread around the country.
