Monroe Township Public Library starting campaign to donate fidget quilts

Published by Monroe Now on

The library has a goal of creating and donating at least 20 quilts/muffs to residents in Monroe. The program is open to ages 12 and up.

People living with dementia often fiddle with objects like buttons. The quilts help evoke memories for some people.

Some are designed as a knitted tube, more of a muff than mittens, they are decorated with odds and ends like buttons, bells and ribbons. The idea is for the wearer to have something with which to fidget.

The library will donate the finished quilts and twiddle muffs to the Parker Adult Day Center in Monroe.
