Challenge and Birthday Celebration coming in October

Each October, we celebrate our birthday month with a blanket challenge, silent auction, great visitors and much more. Our volunteers create quilts and afghans for the Challenge and we host a small show of all the wonderful blankets. We'll have food, friends, our Raffle Quilt winner and so much fun! We do hope you'll join us.

Pick up your Challenge Kit (Yarn & Fabric kits available) at our next Monthly Meeting. Click here for the 2015 Challenge Rules.

Our beautiful, volunteer-made Raffle Quilt will be available for viewing at Linus meetings now through October, when we will choose the winner.

Need tickets? Buy them at our Monthly Meeting or from any Linus volunteer!

The Linus Connection needs yarn donations. April 2014 photo yarndonationsneeded_thelinusconnection_zpsb01796a2.jpg

Our volunteers make hundreds of blankets each month to meet the need of children in crisis in Central Texas. To do this, many supplies are needed. We are constantly in need of washable 100% acrylic yarn. Leftovers to full skeins are gratefully accepted.

Have yarn? Bring it to the next Linus meeting or leave it at one of our Drop-Off locations clearly marked for The Linus Connection.

Not from the Austin area? Email Jennifer for the best address to mail yarn donations!

Upcoming Demos & Presentations

We are in need of volunteers for Demos. If you have a technique, pattern, etc, you'd like to share with our group, please email Jennifer to schedule your demo!

Show And Tell
Blankets were shown and donated on Saturday August 15, 2015. They are not necessarily being shown by the person that made them. Only a sampling of donated blankets is shown each month.

We encourage you to join us at our monthly meeting and participate in Show and Tell at 10 a.m.
