Thank you for your interest in The Linus Connection. Here are answers to our most frequently asked questions.

Is The Linus Connection the same as Project Linus?

  • The Linus Connection is a small non-profit organization based out of central Texas in the Austin area. We have a similar mission as Project Linus, but we are not affiliated with a national organization and serve only Austin-area Texas locations.
What kind and size of blankets do you need? What size should I make?
  • We have a document dedicated to blanket specifications that will answer all your questions about sizes, fabrics, yarn, etc.
How do I donate blankets I have made?
Should I put my name on my blanket/quilt/afghan/quilt top?

  • Yes! Your name should be on all donations, preferably on a Linus Tag (see photo below).

Where are the blankets donated?

  • Blankets are donated to abused, abandoned, ill and at-risk children in the central Texas area who need the comfort and security of their own blanket. The majority of the blankets are given to children aged seven to twelve years, but we also donate blankets to premature babies through teenagers.
  • If you know of an organization that would welcome blankets, please let us know and we will do what we can – depending on the availability of blankets at that time.
