Thank you so much for your interest in the Parkinson’s Comfort Project.
The Project was started in 2011 as a way to provide the warmth, beauty, and comfort of handmade quilts to people with Parkinson’s Disease. Since then, we’ve received nearly 400 lap quilts in all patterns and colors from generous quilters all over the U.S.
We distribute our quilts in several ways:
- We attend Parkinson’s Conferences in New England (where we’re located) and distribute quilts directly to people with Parkinson’s disease.
- We make personal appearances at Parkinson’s support groups in New England to talk about the Parkinson’s Comfort Project and distribute quilts.
- We fulfill quilt requests that we receive from support groups, medical practitioners and religious organizations on behalf of people with Parkinson’s disease.
- We are partnered with the Family Medicine Education Consortium (FMEC.net) to accept quilt requests from their member physicians.
- We fulfill requests received through this website.
We encourage you to add your own label to your quilt. Recipients often ask us who made their personal treasure.
Here’s a guide to the best size for a Parkinson’s Comfort quilt.
Please take a moment to fill out our quilt donation form so that we can give your proper credit for your gift.
If you live in our area (the region of Vermont and New Hampshire known as the Upper Valley), we would be happy to arrange a pickup of your quilt.
