Mending a work shirt, hemming a skirt, adding a motif or following a pattern, many happy hours were spent sewing and dressmaking. Special occasions would always mean a new outfit and it was always handmade! “Just one more pin should do it” and “stop fidgeting” many a child would hear. Sewing was essential but rewarding.
How It Works
After discovering that as people’s dementia progresses they struggle to pick puzzle pieces up and place them in the correct place, which causes frustration. We wanted to design a product with no wrong answer that gives that same sense of achievement.
Creative Scenes enables people to create their own sewing box using a set of magnetic pieces. Each magnetic piece can be picked up and placed on the background wherever they choose, creating their very own sewing box.
Each Creative Scene has beautifully illustrated content, commissioned to ensure they are reminiscent of the appropriate era so people can relate to them and start conversations. The plastic we use is very durable and easy to clean, meeting infection control standards.
