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.
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!

Yarn Donations Needed
Do you have worsted weight acrylic yarn stashed away that you never got around to using? Share it with The Linus Connection and our volunteers will make it into beautiful afghans! Donations can be brought to the monthly meetings or taken to one of our drop off locations.
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.
