June Work Day
Thank you once again to the volunteers that participated in the June Work Day at Honey Bee Quilt Store. You can see photos from the work day and all the great quilt tops that were made here.
The Linus Connection Library of donated books has been operational since January of this year. There are select books available to check out at month meetings or you can request a book online. Please be sure to read the library guidelines before requesting a book online. This information is available both on the Library book list page and on the request form page. When you request a book, please contact Valerie at the next monthly meeting to pick up your selection.
Blanket Guidelines Reminder
In order to maintain the high standards our recipient facilities and the children they represent have come to expect from Linus blankets, we ask that every volunteer occasionally re-read our Blanket Guidelines. Please remember, quilts must have batting, need to be either hand-tied or quilted (machine or hand) and need to be finished securely, preferably using Double Fold French Binding. Yarn blankets need to have all tails woven in. Quilt fabrics need to be 100% cotton, washable quilting fabric. Yarn blankets should be soft washable acrylic. Full Blanket Guidelines can be found here. If you have questions about the Blanket Guidelines, please feel free to contact us.
