April 2014 Meeting & Show and Tell

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

Calling All Yarn!
Do you have washable acrylic yarn stashed away in every nook and cranny? Do you need to clean out those odds and ends of yarn left over from projects past? Bring your clean, usable yarn to the next Linus meeting and share with our lovely crochet and knit ladies! They will turn your used-to-love-it and leftover yarn into gorgeous afghans to donate to children in crisis in Central Texas! 

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 send yarn donations!

Camp Quilts
It's time for camp blankets! We will begin our annual collection of Camp Quilts at our March 2014 meeting. Please remember that the camp facilities can only accept quilts because yarn and fleece blankets like leaves and twigs a bit too much! During Camp Quilt collection, we will continue to provide quilts, yarn and fleece blankets for distribution to our usual recipient other facilities. Camp quilts need are larger sizes for school-aged children, ages 7 - 17. Thank you to everyone that donates every month and for helping to make camp quilt donations possible!

Monthly Meeting

Come and help us help the children! Join us for coffee and snacks and a satisfying morning of volunteerism. 

All experience levels welcome! If you've already finished a blanket you'd like to donate, this is a great day to do it! Come ready to enjoy yourself, make lots of new friends and be inspired by all the wonderful blankets!
