Those who enjoy quilting, knitting or sewing are encouraged to start the new year by coming to a Project Linus gathering from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.
Volunteers make blankets for children in the community who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need. Additionally, they help sew Linus labels on handmade blankets, which are given each month to organizations in Yolo County that serve children in need. A record total of 1,368 blankets were made and donated by the group in 2012.
New fabrics and yarn are available each month for pickup and may be taken home to complete a blanket. There is a great selection of fabrics made possible by generous donations. Finished blankets may be brought to the next monthly gathering or dropped off at Diane McGee’s house.
For drop-off location questions, fabric or yarn donations or more information, contact McGee at [email protected] or 530-753-3436.
