Thank you to Electric Quilt for gifting our members with a special coupon to use in their shop.
Linus Volunteers, the code will be sent out via email on our Mailing List!


We'd like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Stephanie from Hobbs for being an amazing supporter of The Linus Connection. Stephanie recently shared lots of wonderful Hobbs batting for our volunteers to use in our charity quilts for children throughout Central Texas. Thank you, Stephanie! ♥




To qualify to order “Charitable Batting” from Hobbs Bonded Fibers, we are required to provide UPC labels
from Hobbs packaged batting.

If you are a quilter or know any quilters, please save your Hobbs batting bags or UPC labels and either bring them to the monthly meeting or mail them to us at The Linus Connection, P.O. Box 29491, Austin, Texas 78755. 

Please also ask any quilting friends you know to do this as well. We really depend on this batting to fulfill our deliveries each month.

Do you have a fabric donation? Please contact Marge to make drop-off arrangements. Thanks!


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. Leftover balls of yarn 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!








We still need LOTS of Pellet Pockets! Find the instructions to make those are here.

We have enough quilt tops for the time being but will let our volunteers know when we need them again.

If you are helping with Weighted Blankets making pellet pockets, tops, etc., these go in the blue bin on the desk in the kitchen. Be sure to sign tops in on the Sign In Sheet as Quilt Tops. 

Have questions? Contact Stephanie or Anne.



There was no Demo in November.


Almost every month, we present a free demonstration of a fun and easy technique, pattern, etc. to inspire our volunteers.  Do you have a demo idea? Please email Jennifer!
