At each AQS QuiltWeek event, the American Quilter's Society partners with a local charity. This year AQS, the Racing Fingers Quilt Guild, and quilters attending the show will be making fidget quilts for Alzheimer's patients. Look for the Sit & Sew Fidget Quilts booth in the Exhibit Hall and stop to sew a small 20–24" quilt that will be donated to a local patient with Alzheimer's. They are made from a variety of fabrics to create texture. Embellishments like ribbons, cords, buttons, pompoms, empty spools, and other items are added to create a "touchy-feely" quilt. All supplies and sewing machines are provided. We can make a difference!
