Introductory Videos

In this series of Videos Laura Christensen, Licensed Acupuncturist, is in her clinic treatment room with a background of a handmade quilt handed down to her by her great grandmother. The pattern is Grandmother’s Flower Garden. Made entirely of scraps of cotton cloth left over from making clothes, the fabrics are typical of garments in the 1930s and ‘40s. The hexagonal pieces are stitched together by hand, and the entire quilt is quilted by hand in fine stitches.

This would be a typical activity for a woman in her middle age, living alone in a large farmhouse heated only by one coal stove. Many long cold nights were occupied listening to the radio and stitching. This quilt was undoubtedly also used as a bed cover for many, many years. Laura enjoys using handmade quilts to soften her treatment rooms and impart a sense of comfort to patients.
