Twiddlemuffs

ALA Gold Star 191’s Stitches of Love crochet group are making twiddlemuffs. They are simple-to-make knitted or crocheted hand muffs that are helping memory care patients all around the country. Twiddlemuffs are knitted or crocheted muffs with interesting beads, buttons, ribbons, pom poms and yarn attached. Many patients with Alzheimer’s, arthritis and dementia find them comforting and therapeutic as they help encourage movement and brain stimulation.

So far we have provided twiddlemuffs to several nursing homes. We enjoy making these knowing that people will get joy from using them.

Contact President Diane Lowe or member Anna Grimes if you would like more information on this project.
