SAVE THE DATE!

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. Mark your calendars! This year's event will be Saturday, October 21.

Challenge Blanket Makers - PLEASE HAVE YOUR BLANKETS TURNED IN TO OSIE BY 9:30 ON THE DAY OF THE OCTOBER MEETING.

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.
