Have you heard of Twiddlemuffs?

Do you knit or sew?  Can’t knit but would like to learn?

Then come along to our new knit and natter group. We are going to be knitting/sewing a basic hand muff which will then be donated to anyone with dementia.

Twiddlemuffs are a knitted muff with items attached so that a person with dementia can twiddle in their hands. People with dementia often have restless hands and like to have something to keep their hands occupied. It provides a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation whilst at the same time keeping hands snug and warm.

  Pop in ands join us for a Knit & Natter on the 2nd & 4th Monday of each month – anytime between 2pm – 4pm

For any information or if you wish to have a pattern to make these at home please contact us on 01288 353403 or email by or
