Good Morning, Quilters, Bakers, Seamstresses, Knitters…
They say the best way to keep your brain in shape is to keep it active and learning new things.
That means that taking quilting classes is good for our health and may improve our memory!

WATCH WHILE YOU QUILT
I know many of us love to watch these videos while we quilt. I carry my laptop around with me and watch while I do household chores. It makes folding laundry and doing dishes so much more enjoyable!
If YOU have any videos YOU recommend–please let us know and we’ll add it to “OUR LIST”!
Hope YOUR day is filled with brain exercises!
