Next monthly get-together...

Next meeting of the South group is the third Saturday of May 2014. The Round Rock group haven't met much this year due to not having sufficient blankets to process Check with Helen Bokman (email link appears below) about meetings. Bastrop usually meets on the third Saturday too, but contact Mary Knauer (email link below) to be certain.

Even if you don't care to attend meetings, you can donate blankies! Check out our list of places you can drop off blankets around town.

We currently most need teen-sized blankets. One layer fleece blankets of 1 to 2 yards of fleece finished at the edges are quick & easy for these larger blankets. Check out webpages listed below for great fleece-finishing instructions.

Free Patterns

Here are a few websites that have patterns. Try a few out and share your works of art with children in crisis. The possibilities are endless. If you have a favorite site and care to share the riches, send an email to our webmaster, Jan Everett and she'll share it here. We put patterns in our monthly newsletters too, so if you'd like to be on our mailing list, email Jan for that too. Follow the link on the left-hand side of this page to view pdf copies of our past newsletters.

Fleece Blanket Ideas

The best website we've found is a Project Linus chapter in Idaho's compendium of ideas for finishing off fleece blankets. (http://www.linusidaho.org/finishafleeceblanket.htm)

Crochet

Knitting

If you're into quick-and-easy, knitting or crocheting squares and joining them makes wonderful blankies. There are thousands of patterns for squares on the web too. One terrific site is Dishcloth Boutique. They have both knitting and crochet patterns. Prepare to become addicted!

More coming soon!

(P.S. Please remember, Project Linus needs machine-washable and -dryable fibers for our childrens' blankets.)
