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.
Join us for the 9th Annual Linus Connection Challenge! All volunteers and recipient facilities are invited to join us on this special day. Volunteers are encouraged to bring snacks to share. We will have door prizes and Viewer's Choice Awards for our Challenge blankets!
Reminder: All Challenge blankets are due 9 am at the October 19, 2013 meeting but can be turned in earlier to Osie at Honey Bee Quilt Store. Please do not turn your Challenge blanket in with the regular donations. Extra hands will be needed around 8:45 to help hang blankets.
The 2013 Chisholm Trail Quilt Show, "Quilting: Art for Today", is scheduled for Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28, 2013 at the Dell Diamond, 3400 Palm Valley Blvd Round Rock, TX 78664. The Chisholm Trail Quilt Guild and it's members help support The Linus Connection, so be sure to go check out the wonderful quilts they will have on display!
Each month after Show & Tell, we present free, short demonstrations of blanket making techniques to our volunteers. If you have a fun pattern, some tips or other blanket-making ideas you'd like to share, please email Jennifer.
