Have you ever seen a Twiddle Muff?

We’re encouraging knitters and crocheters of all ages to join us in a NEW opportunity to use their craft for the benefit of others – making Twiddle Muffs! 

Emilee High, Volunteer Coordinator at Heartland Hospice shared this unique activity for individuals experiencing Alzheimer’s and dementia at our December Coming Unraveled meeting. Twiddle muffs can be knitted or crocheted and incorporate accessories which the user can “twiddle,” helping reduce restlessness and agitation. Bring your finished Twiddle Muffs to the store and we will get them to Emilee to share with individuals who can use them. Here are some resources to get you started:
