To qualify to order “Charitable Batting” from Hobbs Bonded Fibers, we are required to provide UPC labels
from 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!

We continue to need Weighted Blanket Tops. Current needs are for 8x10 (squares across x squares down) or larger.
