The Alexandra WI working with Hornsey Library knitting Twiddlemuffs for the Dementia.
The Charity Knitting Group started on 13 June 2017 and is thriving. We meet every Tues (except August) 2-4pm at Hornsey Library. All are welcome to join if you are free or would like to meet others.
To date we have donated at least 50 Twiddlemuffs to various sources – Camden Memory Service, St Joseph’s Hospice at Hackney, the Chinese Community in Soho and a couple of Care Homes in Muswell Hill.
We are also looking for donation of wool, yarns, buttons, small toys, bells, anything (none sharp objects) to embellish these Twiddlemuffs which helps pacify the users with the different textures. The more colourful or textured, the better! The photo says it all.
If you’d like to be involved or make a donation of wool etc, please email [email protected]
