CREATIVITY IN CAPTIVITY a Coronavirus Lockdown Quilt
May 08, 2020 Season 1 Episode 3
Lindsay from Postcard from Gibraltar

A lot of us are turning to crafts at this time of lockdown and isolation. The act of making things can work wonders for our mental health, and being able to contribute that craft to a community project can help ease the sense of isolation. 

Inspired by the story of female prisoners of war making a quilt at Changi Prison in Singapore during World War II, a global group of quilters are contributing to a community quilt which will raise funds for a charity helping communities during this difficult time. In this episode of Making Stitches I spoke to Sue Brown who's idea it was to begin the quilt and Amanda James who has contributed a square to the quilt project.
