Due to illness, I’m running slightly late on this thank you to Nancy Madaris. She is the wonderful lady who brought so much love to so many with her customized Fidget Quilts. She crafted original Fidget Quilts dedicated to the specific needs of each recipient.
“Nan’s Sewing Corners” became a popular place on Etsy. When friends and family learned what Nan could do with fabric, thread and a little background information about their loved one, folks were thrilled. With love and understanding of Alzheimer’s dementia, Nan created Fidget Quilts that are adored heirlooms today.
Due to anxiety or agitation those with busy fingers find it quite impossible to hold their hands still. The Fidget Quilts are a blessing for them, and Nancy’s custom quilts are designed with each particular person in mind. With busy fingers finally occupied, the anxiety/agitation generally evaporates. Mood and personality calm and enjoyment of life returns.
I’ve just learned that Nancy will no longer be making Fidget toys and quilts as she will be caring for her own Mom with Alzheimer’s for a time.
Thank You Nancy! for all the wonderfully created quilts and other toys for those with Fidgeting Hands. Our thoughts will be with you as you care for your own lovely Mom.
