Lots of "Show," a little "Tell!"


Hello, dear friends.

The Linus Connection had a successful Parking Lot  Meeting on Saturday, March 20, 2021. We collected many quilts and blankets, passed out lots of supplies, and enjoyed seeing many familiar faces, masks, and all!

We haven't had a photo update in several months and have included here many pictures from all of 2021 so far. 

We hope you enjoy the photos and we very much hope we'll be seeing you again soon!

March Meeting al fresco!

Familiar meeting stations in an unusual setting!








Three Yard Quilt inspiration!


Batting cut and ready to go!


Loading up! There were MANY more bags by the time we were done!







Show (with a little Tell!)
January - March 2021


These photos are presented in no particular order. They were received via email, posted in our Facebook Group, or taken this past Saturday. We hope you enjoy them!











Margarita let us know that Marge gave her the border fabric for this quilt and challenged to her come up with something to go with it. We think she did a great job!

BEFORE YOU DROP OFF YOUR QUILTS, BLANKETS, & QUILT TOPS...


ALL blankets should include a paper tag with a poem and a sew-on Linus label. This is especially important right now. If you are out of labels, please contact Anne and she'll get some to you.

Preparing your donation:

  • Please place donations in a plastic garbage bag or similar and include your full name and what you're donating so we can log it in (just like the sign-in sheet at monthly meetings). For your convenience, we have created a printable donation form. You don't have to use the form, but we do need the information listed for an accurate blanket count and donations must say "for The Linus Connection" so they will not be misdirected (see photo). If you would like a receipt emailed to you, please be sure to include your email address.
  • Please make sure your individual quilts and blankets are labeled and have a poem with your first name. If you are out of labels, please contact Anne. She will mail some to you. 
  • Blankets will be distributed to our usual recipient facilities as needed. Delivery volunteers will be contacted personally if you have a delivery. 

STAY CONNECTED!

Please keep an eye on the website, join our email list, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Instagram for the latest Linus information. We also have a Facebook Group just for Linus Connection volunteers where you can share photos and chat! You can join here.
