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.
On your first visit, choose "The Linus Connection" as your charity.
Your purchases will help support our awesome non-profit!
In 2018, we will be trying a new meeting order. Set up begins at 8:20. If you can help unload cars, please consider coming a little early.
General meeting time is still 9 - 11.
The Demo will begin at 9:45 in the general meeting area, followed by Show & Tell, and the discussion portion of our meeting. Our hope is that this will give our volunteers more time to choose fabric after the Demo.
Times and order subject to change as needed.
