20th Birthday Celebration, Challenge, & Silent Auction!

On October 19, 2010, The Linus Connection celebrated our 20th Birthday, our 15th Annual Challenge, and our 8th Annual Silent Auction!

Happy 20th Birthday to The Linus Connection!

Our volunteers have made and donated 80,000 quilts since 1999!

Our special Birthday meeting included gorgeous quilts and blankets made by our amazing volunteers for our 15th Challenge, a Silent Auction, door prizes, and more!

Thank you to everyone who donated items, especially Hobbs Bonded Fibers, Electric Quilt, and those wonderful individuals who donated items both large and small, baskets, and more, all just for this auction. Every single donation makes this happen. Thank you to Jennifer for organizing and thank you to our bidders for always making this a fun event and for your continued support of The Linus Connection. ♥

Volunteers and visitors alike had the opportunity to see all of our beautiful Challenge Quilts & Yarn Blankets and to cast their votes for favorites in three categories: 

Yarn, Applique Quilts, & Pieced Quilts. There are two favorites chosen from each category. Viewer's Choice Yarn favorites took home Hobby Lobby and Joann Fabric & Craft Gifts Cards. 

Viewer's Choice Quilt favorites took home Honey Bee Quilt Store and Poppy Quilt & Sew gift cards, donated by the stores.

Our Quilt Challenge was sponsored by Timeless Treasures
who donated the fabric for our wonderful quilts and lots of fun door prizes!
