Piecing for Parkinson’s

In addition to writing books, author Sonja Hakala is also the founder of the Parkinson’s Comfort Project.

And a quilter and designer, etc. etc.

The Parkinson’s Comfort Project is growing and Sonja has decided to combine outreach with fundraising by choosing to vend at two quilt shows in 2015.

There will also be objects that folks can own in exchange for donations, handmade items plus books and patterns.

This bag, number one in a series of 19 (each a little different) is designed to wear across-the-body and has an adjustable strap. These are great for shopping, roomy enough for a wallet and other smallish items that leave your hands free.

The outside is sturdy canvas, the inside is fully lined, and it’s just so darned cute!!!

Don’t you want one?
