Sewing nest blankets for dementia patients - from the idea to the project

Patients with dementia and the elderly are often very restless. So-called "nest blankets" offer these people intensive tactile stimuli and calm them down. At the Uster Hospital, such blankets are used in everyday nursing care and patients can take them home if they wish. They are sewn by members of the volunteer team.
The colourful patchwork blankets, similar to quilted blankets, are made of different fabrics and materials and are decorated with ribbons, buttons, bags and so on. Depending on the design of the blankets, the surfaces can trigger beautiful memories and give pleasure - and thus facilitate the stay in the hospital.

Contents of the workshop
- Project phases from the initial idea to implementation
- Cooperation with volunteers and implementation in the "professional" world
- Different possibilities of surface design of nested ceilings

Sewing experience: Basics and safe sewing on the sewing machine are helpful for this workshop.

First we puzzle together a fabric from real remnants, which can be made of completely different material. We take the time to make a beautiful and splendid little composition from which the oval is then cut. The next step is to embroider it with refinement by hand and decorate it with pearls. The background and the sides are quilted, perhaps an ornamental stitch is also used.
I show them how to finish the oval, how to mount it and how to cover the 3.5 cm high stretcher frame.
Your work will have the size 10x20cm and is perfect as a very personal, individual gift.
When hand embroidering, I would like to show you a few small, very effective ideas, which of course can also be implemented in other projects.

Smaller sizes allow concentrated compositions, technical experiments, e. g. applications of unusual materials, but they also require an enormous technical precision. At Nadelwelt Friedrichshafen 2019 she shows textile collages and screen prints on textile surfaces.


+ Birgit Schüller: Classic Roots – 2005–2016
Birgit Schüller

ausstellungen/kl/ID1.png My exhibit “Classic Roots” consists of all my prize-winning show quilts and quilted garments from the years 2005 to 2016. It‘s the summary and the conclusion of my work’s classic phase.


+ Bosna Quilt Werkstatt : Textile art across borders
Bosna Quilt Werkstatt

ausstellungen/kl/ID2.png The Bosna Quilt workshop was created in 1993 during the Bosnian War. In the refugee home Galina in Vorarlberg, Austrian artists wanted to do something with the refugee women against hopelessness and fear. Lucia Lienhard-Giesinger produced modern quilts with the women. She designed the quilts and the Bosnian women stitched them according to their own ideas. None of the participants had ever made a quilt before.

When the women returned to their homeland after the war, they wished to continue. Since then Lucia Lienhard-Giesinger designs the quilts in Bregenz. Then the designs go to Bosnia, where they are sewn over by eleven women in Goražde and Sarajevo. The finished quilts are shown and sold in the Bosna Quilt Workshop in Bregenz as well as in numerous exhibitions. They contribute to the livelihood of eleven Bosnian families.


+ Claudia Nimmrichter: Portraits of fabric
Claudia Nimmrichter

ausstellungen/kl/ID3.jpg My name is Claudia Nimmrichter and I live and work in the Erzgebirge Mountains. Needlework has always been part of my life.
I learned crocheting, knitting, embroidering and sewing when I was a little girl and never stopped enjoying the different parts of crafting. I only discovered patchwork by the end of 2011 and started with traditional patterns first. Then I wanted to design the quilts myself and I discovered the huge diversity of Art quilts, focusing especially on human and animal portraits.
The inspiration of my work is mainly beginning with a classic photography which I try to translate into a unique textile piece of art using all sorts of different fabrics. There is no limitation in creativity.
I especially love to create textile portraits of my grandchildren and my dog.


+ DalinSali - Christine Küchel: Collage pictures
DalinSali - Christine Küchel

One of my great passions is photography. The technique of collage images makes it possible to implement any motif similar to a photo camera. This way I can combine two artistic priorities and create a new approach.
Batics are laid as a collage to breathe vivid colors into the photo. Then I work out fine details such as hair, facial lines or fur by free-hand stitching. This procedure has a decisive advantage.
The images remain soft and flexible and, except on the wall, can also be used to apply them to clothing, pillows or greeting cards.


+ desedamas: Tast Tèxtil
desedamas

ausstellungen/kl/ID7.png Challenges appear when we bring up questions without answers.
We asked ourselves how it would be to capture the experience of savouring a menu d’auteur on a quilt. How to describe, using fabric, the texture of food, the tickling of the bubbles of a good cava or the sweet flavour of ratafía. The strength and volatility of nourishment, its transparency, its sweetness and bitterness.
Silk is and will always be our basis, like water might be for a cook. Starting from the basic to the specific, we aimed at building bridges between cooking and the textile art, to turn a gourmet sampling menu into an exhibition menu. At her restaurant Les Cols, Olot (Spain), the reconigsed cooker Fina Puigdevall offers, along with her husband maître Manel Puigvert, different menus depending on the season, yet always connected with the seasonality and the environment.
In order to take this project, we decided to recreate this same blend. Cecilia portrayed the dishes, transforming something as ephemeral as food into a contemporary and bidimensional textile piece of art, using colour and textures as language. Mercè dealt with the beverages, from water to spirits. The bubbles of cava, the body of red wine, all to turn these liquids into translucent, ethereal works, full of colour, movement and sensuality. Creating a sequence of works that answer the questions we brought up.


+ Deutsch-Afghanische Initiative e.V.: The Power of the Flowers
Deutsch-Afghanische Initiative e.V.

ausstellungen/kl/ID9.png A quilt exhibition, part of the GULDUSI regional development Programme for women of the German-Afghan-Initiative Association.
Women hand-embroider unique specimens in Afghanistan and are thus able to contribute to improving their families financial situation. The embroideries serve in Europe as “seedlings” for creative artistic pieces, meaning they are integrated into other personal designs.
The result is a testimonial to the encounter of two cultures.
This exhibition displays embroidery themes of flowers which have been integrated in quilts.
Enjoy these cheerful, warm compositions before the next winter arrives!


+ Elena Lorenz: Thread painting
Elena Lorenz

ausstellungen/kl/ID8.jpg Actually, you can't say I'm embroidering, because actually you can call my work painting. They are always created as a combination of different materials such as fabrics, wool and yarns in thousands of different colour nuances and structures. The interplay of the different surfaces and colours achieves the desired effect in the end result.
My style unites both the traditional craftsmanship of embroidery, which has been handed down over generations in my family and was taught to me at the age of five by my great-grandmother, and my passion for painting. During my studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Kursk I deepened the technical skills for my work.
My main inspiration is nature in all its facets and I try to capture its beauty as best I can and transfer it into my paintings.


+ Elgimomo-Quilterinnen: THE RED RIBBON PROJECT
Elgimomo-Quilterinnen

The Elgimomo quilters like to work on joint projects. In 2018 we started on the RED RIBBON PROJECT.The RED RIBBON weaves its way through all the quilts. The start and the end of the ribbon is defined; the rest of the area has been designed freely. Each member chose chose their own individual type of block for the ribbon and then wrote respective instructions for this block. The rest of the group then sewed several blocks according to the instructions; thus all group members were involved in the sewing of the ribbons. One quilter, who joined later, got the "leftovers".
In this way, very individual pieces of works have been created showing many patchwork techniques.

Group members are: Boot Monica, Follner Sabine, Götzfried Christel, Hantschel Gisela, Mayr Angela, Poignée Renate, Römpp Ursula, Schegerer Ines, Thomae Eli, Waidmann Regine, Wenz Marianne


+ Jana Sterbova / Irena Zemanova: In Frame = Art?
Jana Sterbova / Irena Zemanova

Textile works, art quilts, will be shown in two different ways – framed and unframed as quilts usually are on display. The artists intend to continue the discussion started about two years ago by Mr. Eibisch and about 30 European textile artists. Is a framed work automatically more acceptable as art for galleries, collectors and museums? Is it really only a frame that makes an art quilt to a piece of art? Visitors´ discussions may help to answer the question.


+ Johanna Spaethe: What remains?!
Johanna Spaethe

My textile work represents my lifestyle. I donot want to take part in fast, perishable consumption and passing fads. My ambition is the use and further development of pre-existing resources and the communication of stray thoughts as well as the exploring of possibilities – experiments between the known and unknown. Since 1979 I am busy in the field of arts and crafts. I learned spinning, weaving, dying and many techniques for working with cloth and threads. I use materials from nature only. My innate curiosity enabled me to deal with boundless possibilities in creative ways. My handmade workpieces are thoughts and statements made visible bit by bit while using second-hand materials and hand-me-downs. What remains? With this question my work is reduced to producing „something made by hand“ – stitch for stich, working step by working step – while documenting thoughts, minutes, seconds of the passing time.


+ Kasia Hanack: Color and Thread
Kasia Hanack

ausstellungen/kl/ID4.jpg Freemotion embroidery, also known as "thread sketching" and "thread painting" is for Kasia Hanack the preferred method of surface design. The interior designer specialized in color design teaches this technique in courses in Germany and Switzerland.
Most of her work starts with a white piece of fabric which is worked on with diverse mix media techniques such as paint, dyes, hot foils and other materials and then embroidered with different kinds of threads. The white fabric and the design process have a special meaning for the artist. Kasia was born in Poland and immigrated to New York City as a small child, thus having a "clean slate" or a white piece of paper to fill. Later, as a young woman she moved to Germany with her husband. Each time a new country, a new language, new culture; a blank piece of paper to arrange and to fill. The innovative materials and fascinating textures of the cloths, yarns and threads symbolize a new beginning, the flexibility of assimilation and the new roots that grow each and every time one moves so far away. If one looks closely the personal emotional development can be spotted in the colorful and dynamic textile pieces.
In the exhibition one can see small art quilts and practical objects. The artist will additionally do some demonstrations of freemotion embroidery during the tradeshow.


+ Network Quilters: Is this art or can it be dumped?
Network Quilters

The Network Quilters claim: "Quilts should be put in museums!" and at the same time they doubt their claim "Or shouldn't they?". In their exhibition they treat these questions in a playful way and with a twinkle in their eyes. They create their own museum, and invite visitors to make up their minds by being active themselves and creating their own art with quilts.


+ Quilt around the world: 50pictures – inspiration.creation.quilts
Quilt around the world

Over the course of one year, quilters from around the globe, including beginners, occasional quilters and professionals, let themselves be surprised every week with a new inspirational photo featuring various nature themes and man-made motifs. They were asked to "translate" single aspects of one or more of these photo views to create individual textile interpretations in the form of miniature quilts measuring 12” x 12” (30 x 30 cm).

The 50pictures exhibition presents a selection of the 120 submitted miniature quilts and the corresponding photo motifs in an unusual exhibition format that invites visitors to view the world around them from completely different angles and thus discover new sources of inspiration for their own creative quilting projects.

At the NADELWELT Friedrichshafen a new 50pictures join-in project will be launched, this time with the motto "archiTEXTure".


+ Silke Bosbach: The lyrical band :: only one word
Silke Bosbach

ausstellungen/kl/ID5.jpg More than 50m of textile "one-word-lyric" - that is how the expressive result of a special arts project by designer Silke Bosbach presents itself.

True to the motto "A word is more than just a word", participants of the project were asked to provide their own prrsonal favourite word as a treasure trove of inner inspiration.
Through various artistic printing techniques Silke Bosbach used them to create a fascinating work of immense psychodynamic power,which reveals a variety of personality and intimacy in today's society; an exciting project,with countless entries and an expressive preliminary result: for on account of the great meaningfulness of the work,the project will find a particular continuation.


+ Spital Uster: Fiddle blankets for patients with dementia
Spital Uster

Patients with dementia and elderly patients are often very restless.
The handling of fiddle blankets can have a calming effect. In the hospital Uster such blankets are used in everyday care and the blankets are given home on request. The blankets are sewn by members of the volunteer team.
The colorful patchwork blankets are made of different fabrics and materials. The surfaces can create memories. Patients suffering from dementia often pluck on their clothes or things close to their environment – they “fiddle”. All manufactured blankets are unique - freely designed with a lot of imagination, joy and commitment.
In the exhibition we show individual blankets. These are supplemented with information about the project “fiddle blankets” at the Spital Uster.


+ textilkunstalternativ - Die Alküns: What moves women - What unites women - What women are doing
textilkunstalternativ - Die Alküns

The group "textilkunstalternativ - Die Alküns" has dealt with this topic. The artists have recorded the lives and achievements of well-known female personalities, depicted them with textile means and thus made them visible. Unfortunately, all these women in their time often stood in the shadow of famous men, their achievements were hardly known and appreciated accordingly.

But although equal rights for men and women are enshrined in the German constitution, there are still disadvantages for women in everyday life today - e.g. low pay in the classic "women's occupations" and even with equivalent qualifications. These contradictions also move and unite women.

The only way to change things is for women to create their own networks, because it is well known that women are still denied access to the traditional networks of men.

The group is looking forward to many discussions with interested female and of course male visitors.
