Sewing With Nancy

Nancy's Corner - Mary Balagna, Project Linus

Clip: Season 2600 Episode 2625 | 5m 38s

Mary Balagna, from the national headquarters of Project Linus, joined Nancy to tell about their new venture, encouraging volunteers to stitch weighted blankets. The pressure provided by a weighted blanket creates a calming effect for children with sensory disorders, similar to swaddling an infant. The channeled blankets are stuffed with twin sheets to provide weight.
