Looking for injured quilters!

September 2, 2009

Ouch!!!

Have you ever had an injury from quilting?  Tendonitis from too much stippling?  Backache form hours in front of your machine?  What about you long arm quilters?

We would like to interview Canadian quilters about their quilting related injury experiences for an upcoming article in Quilter’s Connection Magazine!  Send us an email at info@quiltersconnection.ca, with the subject line “quilter’s injuries”.

Thanks! ~ Heather

    Hi folks! I work at the best quilt shop in Atlantic Canada called Fabric Crafts N More in O’Leary, PEI. And of course I’m a quilter. Over two months ago, I woke up with such pain in my hand that I swore I must have broke something in my hand. Off to the doctor who prescribed rest and anti-inflammatories. The pain continued to worsen so off to the emergency room where the prognosis was tendonitis. He recommended complete rest and a wrist splint and more drugs. I was off work for two weeks and bored out of my tree. I’m a hand quilter and that’s all I do in my spare time! I was devasted! Now more than two months has passed and I’m still not 100%. I take an advil before I quilt and limit my time to 15 minutes at my frame and 15 minutes away from it. They say it can take over 6 months for complete recovery. Let’s hope that’s true.
