Comfort Shawl Program

Comfort Shawl Program:

If you are a fanatical knitter and/or crocheter, did you know you could help Horizon hospice patients? For the past 3 years, the Comfort Shawl Program has provided an unspeakable comfort to patients and family members.  Those knitting or crocheting the lap blanket squares feel a strong sense of satisfaction knowing their effort and talent provides comfort to those during a time of need.

If you are looking to expand your interests, consider the Comfort Shawl Program as that new venture!  You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.  You can spend as much or as little time as you are able to.  ALL supplies are provided.  All we ask is that you use size 8 needles.  Feel free to use any pattern you desire to create a square the size of an 8.5” X 11” sheet of paper. Any colors are welcome; we use them all.

Horizon Home Care and Hospice is partnered with Alexian Village of Milwaukee in its Comfort Shawl Program.

The group meets weekly on Monday afternoons from 1-3 pm, at Alexian Village of Milwaukee located at 9255 N 76th St. in the Clubhouse. Come as you are able.

Once you are registered, you will receive a knitting bag, yarn, a pair of size 8 needles or a crochet hook, and all the encouragement you may need from a wonderful group of women.


(Hundreds of lap blankets have already been made)
