Tis the season for Soul Scarves!  Once again, Grace Place invites knitters, crochet-ers, and crafters to create/donate warm scarves (hats and gloves, too) to offer to guests at the weekly community breakfast.  Plain colors and simple patterns are usually best. Please bring your creations to Grace Place beforeDecember 1

Each Fall and early Winter we collect hand-knit scarves, hats, gloves and mittens (or machine-made ones, too) for the 180 people who come to breakfast here in GracePlace each Saturday morning.

You may drop your projects in GracePlace (Grace Episcopal Church) or mail to before December 1st:

Grace Place Episcopal Church
637 S Dearborn St STE 1
Chicago IL 60605

Please remember, when designing your projects that the recipient of your gift will most likely be a man.

Questions? Comments? Ideas? Please contact Doreen, coordinator, at


Prior to the 10 AM service, the scarves, hats, gloves, and other winter gear donated are laid out. Each parishioner holds a scarf as the collection is blessed.  Donations from as far and near as South Dakota and Chicagoland…
