March 2014 Meeting, Show & Tell and February Workday

Calling All Yarn!
Do you have washable acrylic yarn stashed away in every nook and cranny? Do you need to clean out those odds and ends of yarn left over from projects past? Bring your clean, usable yarn to the next Linus meeting and share with our lovely crochet and knit ladies! They will turn your used-to-love-it and leftover yarn into gorgeous afghans to donate to children in crisis in Central Texas!

Camp Quilts
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!
