Yes, stitch can be therapy. This year we will have a series of projects beginning in February that concentrate on the meditative and stress reducing aspects of quiltmaking. Although I am not a therapist, much like your friendly bartender, a good quilt project can make all those troubles fade away. Better than the bartender, a quilting or stitching hangover just means you might need to pick stray threads from strange spots. Your livers wont suffer either.
Tomorrow will have the first meeting of our new Block of the Month, Beautiful Valley. This is going to be the best one yet, and yes, it can be a therapy quilt too, coloring and hand stitching certainly fit that model, and if you do the scrappy version, it could even be stash therapy. Can’t wait to get you all started on this project.
Tuesday, the Hand Stitchers Club will meet for finishing some projects, and Heartstrings will start on Thursday. Please read the supply list carefully and bring the items needed for the first session.
