Announcement   Thank you for visiting An Uncommon Sense.

***I've decided to make the difficult decision to close An Uncommon Sense until my children are in school full-time and I have more time to run this business. I have greatly enjoyed working with the fabulous people that have ordered my blankets. Thank you so very much for your support! I look forward to serving more wonderful people in the future!

Sewing and quilting has long been a passion of mine. Once my eldest son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and other related issues, I became passionate about discovering whatever I could do to help him. After seeing how much relief, calm and comfort he received from cuddling with a hand-made weighted blanket, I was hooked and An Uncommon Sense was born.

I love making high-quality, comforting weighted blankets for others. It is extremely rewarding to know that my passion for sewing can help provide comfort for others facing sensory integration challenges. Each of my products is carefully constructed with love and great care in my pet-free, smoke-free home studio.

About

I make beautiful, comforting blankets for people with sensory processing challenges.

After seeing first hand, how much people benefit from the calming nature of weighted blankets, I started this shop, An Uncommon Sense. Research studies have shown that weighted blankets help improve sensory regulation and reduce anxiety for individuals with ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, PDD, Restless Leg Syndrome and Anxiety Disorders.
