---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a customized free-standing caddy for sewing and knitting supplies for elderly individuals with heart problems and osteoarthritis. This individual had previously used a fabric storage bag fitted onto her favorite chair for her supplies. Her mobility needs changed and she obtained a new recliner-type chair and the bag no longer worked with this chair. A free-standing caddy was suggested to solve this problem. A wooden caddy with two posts and bars across the top and bottom and wide feet on the bottom for stability was created and the wood stained to match the user’s other furniture. The individual’s granddaughter made a new, more advanced bag for her, with multiple pockets and a cushion on the top for sewing pins. The stand fits neatly next to the recliner and does not create a trip hazard when the user sits on or gets up from the chair. TITLE: Sewing Caddy. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
