Alice's Embrace is devoted to providing hand-knit and hand-crocheted prayer shawls and lap blankets to those suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. We seek volunteers to knit and crochet the patterns that we have created. Through the loving hands of many generous and talented people, this endeavor will help ease the anxiety that is often present in those suffering from the disease.
CURRENT CONTEST ends on September 30th with added bonus drawing!
This contest is open to everyone. So whether you drop off your item to a partnering shop, send an item to us directly or you deliver it to Diane Lewis....you will be included in the contest. If you donate one item you will get in the drawing one time; if you donate two items you will get in the drawing two times and so on. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the yarn shop of his or her choice. This contest is for items donated between July 1 and September 30, 2014. Rachael Herron, author, knitter, blog extraordinaire and Alice's Embrace supporter, received another shawl from one of her fans for us to give away. The gorgeous shawl was donated by Rachel from Sheffield Lake, Ohio. Both of Rachel's husband's grandmothers sadly suffer from Alzheimer's Disease. A big thank you to Rachel for adding a little spice to our next contest! Please click here to see our Facebook page with a picture of the beautiful shawl.
Big Delivery - Items Needed
All of our deliveries have been wonderful. We usually have about 20-25 special people who receive Alice's Embrace prayer shawls and lap blankets. However, our next delivery is for an Eskaton day care facility and there are about 45 regular visitors. We like to give them choices when they pick out their special gift so when we make this visit we need to have about 60-65 items. If you have a project on your needles or are working one of our crochet patterns, this would be a wonderful time to finish it up. If you have been thinking of making something for a deserving person, why not get going on one now? Remember that you can drop your donation off at one of our wonderful partnering yarns shops or send it in the mail directly to us. Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful donation.
