Next Volunteer Meeting...
The new North group will next meet November 21th, 2015, from 10 am until about 2 pm. The South group adjourns for November and December.

We always collect blankets from our retail collection partners, and are happy to give blankets if you know of a need. Contact info appears at the bottom of the page on the right.

We now have a North Group again. See Meeting Directions.

More information on the Bastrop meetings is found at this location.

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

We currently most need large blankets. For an easy large blanket, one layer fleece blankets of 1˝ to 2 yards of fleece finished at the edges are quick & easy. Check out webpages listed below for great fleece-finishing instructions.

We also always need single-layer, 36"-square fleece receiving blankets in baby prints. These are donated monthly to Dell Children's Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

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. We put links to patterns in our monthly newsletters, so if you'd like to be on our mailing list sign-up here. This mail service is sponsored (for free—thanks MailChimp!) by MailChimp and complies with anti-spam regulations rigorously. You can unsubscibe any time right from the newsletter.

Most knitters and crocheters are familiar with Ravelry, but if you're not, check it out. It has thousands of free knitting and crochet pattern links and powerful search features. And membership is free.

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)



If you're into quick-and-easy (aren't we all?), knitting or crocheting squares and joining them makes wonderful blankies. And it's a nifty way to learn patterns and practice your skills. 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 ;-D .

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