Alice's Embrace is a non-profit organization 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 warm, comfort, and soothe these dear folks facing the daily challenges of the disease. Together, we're making a difference.

Nearly every day, lap blankets and prayer shawls arrive in the mail for our recipients.  We always share photos of these beauties on our Facebook page

Enjoy some of those fun shots right here.

We're excited to announce the launch of The Alice Society. The creation of this special society is a small way for us to acknowledge some of our amazing contributors. Each person who knits or crochets at least 15 lap blankets or prayer shawls for Alice's Embrace and each person who gives $500 in monetary donations, or a combination of both, will receive this recognition and the pin shown above.  Our hope with creating The Alice Society is that the members will wear their pins and when asked, they will happily engage in conversations about what we do here at Alice's Embrace... since the pin is an eye-catcher, they will be asked. As our donors qualify for The Alice Society, we will put the unique pin into the mail.
