Benefit of Quilting on the geriatric age group acknowledged at annual festival.
The international Quilt festival is holding at the Houston convention center .
Many of the participants are in the geriatric age bracket .
One of them spoke to the editor of health and development magazine on the importance of quilting especially for the elderly .
She is of the opinion that quilting has social benefit because most of the participants work in group at the workshops and at the community level.
She said it helps with stress, as people move from stressful mental work at the job places to their quilt work at home .
She believes that people can make money from it as a business , though that will require resources and commitment .
