Thank you to everyone who joined us for our November meeting. As a reminder, there will be no Demo in December. Instead, we hope you'll join us for our Holiday Celebration! Feel free to bring a snack or treat. We will have drinks and some fun surprises for our volunteers!
The Linus Connection Board would like to welcome Sarah Spence who has joined the Board for a trial period. Thank you Sarah!

Anne at a DVISD event for special education and at-risk families.
The Del Valle school that our blankets are going to is their DAEP (Disciplinary Alternative Education Program) campus. The goal is for the students to return to their local schools. This event was a parent & family night. Community partners were invited to attend and showcase some of their work. We were one of 4 to do so and I used blankets from our first delivery including 2 weighted blankets. They had a barbecue dinner and a speaker whose aim was to motivate the kids in their life choices.

To qualify to order “Charitable Batting” from Hobbs Bonded Fibers, we are required to provide UPC labelsfrom Hobbs packaged batting.
If you are a quilter or know any quilters, please save your Hobbs batting bags or UPC labels and either bring them to the monthly meeting or mail them to us at The Linus Connection, P.O. Box 29491, Austin, Texas 78755.
Please also ask any quilting friends you know to do this as well. We really depend on this batting to fulfill our deliveries each month.
Please remember: Paper Poems should include your first name at the top with the ribbon tied in a bow. Use a safety pin on quilts, NO safety pin on yarn blankets. ALL blankets should include a paper tag with a poem and a sew-on Linus label.
See diagram above for placement or watch this super short video!
