About

TherapyWorks NW is a nonprofit therapy clinic for special needs children. We could use some help to do sewing to create weighted blankets out of fleece. It is all straight line sewing so does not require advanced sewing skills. This could be done at our location on a team project day or at your home. We provide all of the materials. Weighted blankets can help hyperactive children slow down and calm when overstimulated or when needing to be able to focus. They have proven to be a good tool that benefit children, but are quite expensive. We are trying to provide these to our clients at low or no cost as well as use the weighted blanket project as a fundraiser to be able to provide charitable therapies.
