The American Legion Auxiliary is the world's largest women's patriotic service organization. Through its nearly 10,500 Units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals.

ALA Gold Star 191’s Stitches of Love crochet group are making twiddlemuffs. They are simple-to-make knitted or crocheted hand muffs that are helping memory care patients all around the country. Twiddlemuffs are knitted or crocheted muffs with interesting beads, buttons, ribbons, pom poms and yarn attached. Many patients with Alzheimer’s, arthritis and dementia find them comforting and therapeutic as they help encourage movement and brain stimulation.

So far we have provided twiddlemuffs to several nursing homes. We enjoy making these knowing that people will get joy from using them.

Contact President Diane Lowe or member Anna Grimes if you would like more information on this project.
