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.

Due to limited space, we had an unusually short and sweet meeting with no Show & Tell or Demo. We'll return to our usual meeting place next month. Thank you all for coming by and helping despite the tight circumstances.
