Many of the quilters that I know enjoy quilting as a way to express their creativity. Now we may have another reason to enjoy quilting all the more.
According to an article, Learning A New Skill Works Best To Keep Your Brain Sharp by Lauren Silverman, a study done at the University of Texas at Dallas, showed that learning to quilt can actually improve the person's memory.
So I want to send a big shout out to all my students who keep on learning new techniques!
Do we really need another reason to justify our passion? Probably not, but let's keep on quilting--It's a very, good thing!-Linda
