My step-daughter suffered a severe stroke 18 months ago. She is a quilter and would like to try quilting again. However, she only has the use of one hand. Any ideas?

    Maybe help her with the cutting and pinning. And just practice. And above all, be patient and kind with yourself. This is a craft you loved and can once again be something you enjoy. And anything and I mean anything you do now will be very very special. You survived. That is a gift. I am sure you can overcome the obstacles.

    I'm sorry to hear about your step daughter. If someone else can do the sewing would she be able to "tie" quilt blocks together? How about some software to design quilts? Maybe sell the quilt patterns? If she is currently unable to sew conventionally, maybe by hand with asistive devices? Just a thought. Best of wishes to you both.
