We are asking members who knit or crochet to make up some Twiddle Muffs for us to complete and embellish at our September meeting. Twiddle Muffs, also known as Sensory Bands, are textured and embellished bands which are given to dementia patients. Fiddling with them can comfort and calm them and help with their symptoms.
Any donated materials are welcome, and patterns are available online. One example is Sensory-band-pattern, and we have a local charity willing to accept them, as some hospitals have sufficient supplies for now.
