Quilting During The Lockdown With A Smile

Managing these changing times during the lockdown (from Covid-19) can be a challenge. As older quilters, we are told to stay away from others. How do we manage? What do we do? How do we get supplies? These questions and more things to consider are covered in this article.

Quilting During The Lockdown With A Smile

 

How do we manage?

We have been advised to stay home, wash our hands, and stay away from groups of people larger than 10 (may be different for your community).

What do we do?

We do more quilting and reduce the UFOs in our queue. Enjoy the uninterrupted! Also, consider working with your local quilt shop to coordinate a hospital mask donation to your local hospital. Check with the hospital first. Ask if there’s anything else they need. Read the article containing pattern and instruction video.

How do we get supplies?

You can still get supplies from your local quilt shop. Here are some things to consider:

  • Go during off peak hours when fewer people are in the shop or be the only one in the shop
  • Attend classes with a few number of students well spaced apart
  • Call the shop for supplies and see if they will deliver to your home, curbside, in the shop parking lot, or by mail
  • If the shop has a website, call the shop to see if you can order from the site and then pick it up
  • If you are sick, stay home

If you are a younger quilter, consider volunteering or offering to deliver supplies to your quilting friends. You can stay 6 to 10 feet away and still socialize with them.
