The Linus Connection is a Central Texas 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to make and deliver handmade security blankets for children in crisis situations in our area. The blankets go to children in hospital emergency rooms, in crisis centers, in foster care, battered women's shelters, to any child who is in need of a little extra security in their lives.
The Challenge has commenced! We have a limited supply of Challenge kits this year. If you missed the June meeting and would like a kit, please contact Jennifer. Kits are first come, first served, one per person...when they're gone, they're gone! The rules are a little different this year, so please be sure to read the Challenge guidelines thoroughly!
Join us at The Stitching Studio for a Linus Work/Sewing Day! We'll be sewing tops and binding, cutting kits, ironing, having finish-your-quilt demos and having a great time with our fellow Linus volunteers!
Quilters, bring your sewing machine and notions. Ironing stations and design walls are provided.
Knitters and Crocheters, bring your current Linus blanket.
Drop-in or bring your lunch and stay all day!
Challenge Kits will be available.

The Linus Connection has worked closely with our Recipient Facilities over the years to come up with guidelines for making the best blankets possible for the children that receive them. Please take a few minutes to read through the Blanket Specifications and print a copy for yourself. Blanket Specifications include General Blanket Guidelines (sizes, etc.), Quilts, Quilt Tops, Yarn Blanket, and Fleece Blankets.
