Since the launch party on January 17, 2017, we have had great success with the Twiddle Muffs. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this great charity. Whether you donated yarn, beads, bells, ribbon, doo-dads, thingy’s, etc., or your time to make the twiddle muffs, here’s a BIG THANK YOU! I genuinely appreciate all the help that each and every one of you has done.
We have distributed to the following facilities and are continuing to give to others in the area.

We have been in contact with the Alzheimer’s Association Greater East Ohio Area Chapter that has a care givers support group and introduced our Twiddle Muffs to them to help those who are taking care of loved ones at home. They cover 17 counties in the area. We are hoping to provide to the private sector as well as facilities and believe this group will be able to help. The helpline for this organization is 800-272-3900.
We will be having an impromptu Twiddle Muff day on May 13 from 10 – 4. Join us while we knit and crochet muffs together. If you are new to these, this is a great way to see how to decorate and ask questions about the construction of the muffs. If you have not started one and want to try it, we can get you started. “J” hook for crochet kit or size 11 16” circular for the knit kit.
