Bailey Brewer writes: “You’ve heard of fidget spinners. But what about fidget quilts? In 2015, David Kelsey, outreach services librarian at St. Charles (Ill.) Public Library, attended a Reaching Across Illinois Library System program where he heard presenter Glenna Godinsky mention fidget quilts. These small lap quilts, which also sometimes come in the form of a wearable apron, are affixed with zippers, buttons, and other items that people can manipulate to help reduce nervous tension.”
