No, we hadn’t heard of them either…
They sound funny… however, they are actually very important for Dementia sufferers. These are knitted hand ‘muffs’ that have various things attached to ‘twiddle’ with – like buttons, pompoms etc. They provide comfort and stimulation. They are also very much needed and very simple to make – if you know how…!
Can you knit? Would you be willing to come along to an evening of craft knowing you were giving away your beautiful make? Then The Crafty Lass® needs you!
In recognition of Dementia Awareness Week (Monday 21 May – Sunday 27 May 2018) – we are hosting a charity craft night! All materials, the pattern and refreshments will be provided* – we will spend a couple of hours together chatting, talking the pattern through and crafting… you will take everything away with you to complete your make (as unlikely to finish in the one evening) and then once you have made your Twiddlemuff (ideally within the week) return this to The Crafty Lass® and we will send these off to the Heart of England NHS trust for use with Dementia patients.
Tickets are charged at a nominal fee to reserve your space, but all monies received will be donated to The Alzheimers Society.
