Introducing Sensory Squares: personalised photo quilts that are designed to provide stimulation and keep hands busy.
I have developed them after numerous requests from people interested in making my Stitchbooks suitable for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia. They are suitable for anyone who needs something tactile to fiddle with. Each square has a mixture of photographs, fiddle activities and sensory materials and they attach together to form a larger quilt.

I'd love to know what you think and for you to share this with anyone you know who might be looking for a special gift for someone in their life with sensory needs.
