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.
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 me....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.
