As seen on Sewing with Nancy, our very own Marcia Engquist who designs Alzheimer Activity Aids, is leading a charity sew-in for Alzheimer Fidget Mats!

Help us make mats for local Alzheimer’s care facilities!

These “Fidget Mats” are designed to safely comfort and entertain Alzheimer’s patients. Each mat contains a zipper, buttons, a pocket for a family photo, and a variety of textures. They can be used on a table, in a lap or tied around the patient’s waist as an apron.




We will provide supplies, instructions and snacks. You bring your enthusiasm, your machine with standard foot, button hole foot, manual, etc. and scissors, seam ripper, etc. (optional: teflon foot)

Saturday March. 18  1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Saturday April 15  1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

There is no cost for this event. Space is very limited, so register today to reserve your spot!
