All over the country, individual chapters of the national Project Linus organization will celebrate blanket day Saturday. The Yolo County chapter will join the celebration from noon to 3 p.m. in the Activities Room at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.
The mission of Project Linus is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade, washable blankets, lovingly crafted by volunteer blanketeers.
There will be demonstrations of knitting, crocheting, quilting and tying fleece blankets. Quilt patterns and fabric will be available for those who would like to make a small quilt at home for Project Linus.
The group meets the second Wednesday of each month from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Senior Center to hand-sew labels on donated blankets and exchange creative ideas.
“Knitting, crocheting and quilting are not the only skills needed for our success,” a spokeswoman said.
