The Challenge Begins!

Challenge kits and rules were handed out at our June meeting. If you missed it, don't worry, you can still pick up your Challenge pack in July! Question? Email Osie.

The Annual Blanket Challenge is part of our Birthday Celebration held every October. It's a great opportunity for our volunteers to try something new and showcase their talents to visitors and recipient facilities. This year's event will be Saturday, October 21.


Camp Quilts

We've wrapped up Camp Quilts for the year and want to thank each and every volunteer who went above and beyond to help us reach our goal over. Now that camp collection has concluded, we'll start saving up for Back to School in August and various Holiday events in December. Keep those blankets coming and as always, THANK YOU for all of your hard work!

The Linus Connection needs yarn donations. April 2014 photo yarndonationsneeded_thelinusconnection_zpsb01796a2.jpg

Our volunteers make hundreds of blankets each month to meet the need of children in crisis in Central Texas. To do this, many supplies are needed. We are constantly in need of washable 100% acrylic yarn. Leftover balls of yarn to full skeins are gratefully accepted.

Have yarn? Bring it to the next Linus meeting or leave it at one of our Drop-Off locations clearly marked for The Linus Connection.

Not from the Austin area? Email Jennifer for the best address to mail yarn donations!

We continue to have requests for weighted blankets, and are in special need of the larger sized quilt tops.


Please turn your Pellet Pockets and finished tops for Weighted Blankets at the monthly meeting, Please note: If you are helping with Weighted Blankets, pockets, tops, etc. go in the blue bin on the desk in the kitchen. Be sure to sign tops in on the Sign In Sheet as Quilt Tops. 

Have questions? Contact Stephanie or Anne.
