Welcome to my weighted blanket site! I am glad that you found the site - I hope that I can help you choose the weighted item you are looking for.
I am a life long hobbyist sewer. In the past, I had always made things for myself, my home, and family only. When I began working in an occupational therapy clinic in 2001, I was introduced to the ideas and products that the therapists were using to calm and aid children with a variety of regulation issues. I saw weighted products being used with and helping children struggling with attention issues, ADHD, sensory integration, attachment issues and autism. As I continued to work in this environment and saw people being helped, I began to make products for the children and their families for another clinic. I made weighted scarves, blankets, and lap pads. I love to hear the feedback from parents and from adults who purchase the blankets for themselves.
I like to create items according to each person's preferences in color and theme. As you are using the site to find out more about weighted blankets, keep in mind that you can fill out the contact section on the last page to ask any questions I may not have answered in the site.
