Members of the Northumberland Quilt Guild donated 40 fidget quilts to the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow.  Handmade fidget quilts are used in the hospital’s transitional care, medicine and surgery inpatient units and the emergency department to help patients who are stressed or anxious and can benefit from keeping their hands and minds busy.
