There is powerful evidence-based research that proves quilting is a desirable and valuable activity to brain health, wellbeing and maintenance of social ties and independence as we age. Neurologists and specialists in ageing know its physical benefits to the Over 65s. However, try as we might, we can’t control the physical effects of age on our body. For some, physical ageing can be a challenge, if not a barrier, to continuing to quilt.

“The good news,”says author Christine Sutton, “is that it doesn’t have to prevent you doing what you love. There are rulers designed to make it virtually impossible not to cut a straight line, even if you have a slight hand tremor, cutters that take all the pressure off arthritic hands and sore wrists, there are even digital cutters that do it all for you.”

Christine Sutton, at age 77, has been a quilter for 40+ years, and teaches Beginners Quilting to the over 50’s.  In her book, “You’re Never Too Old To Quilt”, Christine Sutton presents a guide for those who struggle to keep quilting, and those who want to learn to quilt, but because of physical challenges, find it all too hard.

“It’s a “How to quilt if, like me, you’re an Old Chook or Tough Old Rooster with a sore body, ” she laughs, “or a Spring Chicken who wants learn and keep quilting for many years.”
