A Note From Our President

Well, it seems like March has come in like a lamb, it could go out like a lion…or not. Although we all know that what happens in between the 1 st and the 31 st can be a mixture of all things imaginable. In years past, this has been the month of some of our most record snowfalls and snowstorms and for many people, (not usually people who live in the mountains!) March heralds, the approach of spring.

TOUCH QUILTS :  We now have ‘Touch Quilt Kits’!  

A complete fun and colourful package to make a lap sized touch quilt top.  Tops are made with nine squares, three rows of three squares that are cut at 6.5” each before assembly.  Touch quilts are made of colourful fabric with varying textures. Add-ons such as pockets, Velcro and ties provide dementia patients with tactile and visual stimulation. Quilts are backed with flannel to keep them from slipping. Our guild continues to make touch quilts for the Bow Valley, they provide both warmth and security to recipients.

These are a fun and easy project, completed in several hours. If you’d like to have a kit, please contact the current keeper of the closet Karen at treas@mountaincabinquilters.ca
