Blankets made with tender loving care for Project Linus

By From page A3 | December 04, 2012

Quilters, knitters and seamstresses are invited to the monthly meeting of Project Linus of Yolo County from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St. in Davis.

Project Linus volunteers make blankets for children in the community who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need, such as the group’s recent shipment of more than 100 blankets sent to the East Coast to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Help is needed to sew Linus labels on handmade blankets that are given each month to organizations in Yolo County that serve children in need.

New fabrics and yarn are available each month for pickup and may be taken home to complete a blanket. There is a wide selection of fabrics made possible by generous donations.

Finished blankets can be brought to the next monthly gathering or dropped off at Diane McGee’s house no later than Monday, which will be the last day to leave blankets until after Jan. 1.

For drop-off location questions, fabric or yarn donations or for further information, contact McGee via email at [email protected] or call 530-753-3436.
