A new Project for Us

Stitchers is now making special quilts for blind and sight challenged children.  Each quilt is 36 inch Sq. made with 9 different feeling fabrics, sorted colors, and most squares are embellished with some type of object such as a zipper, pad of different feeling substance, a child’s wash mitt, etc.   This allows the child to feel many surprising objects and cloth textures.    The backing is always total black so a brightly colored toy can be placed on the quilt for play by a child with may have some sight ability.  We all feel blissed that we can be a part of this great work.    For more information you can contact Tracy Deluca, Education Coordinator, Dept. for the Blind and Vision Impaired, 804-371-3102, WWW.vdbvi.org, or TGracy.Deluca@dbvi.virginia.gov.
