Volunteer Meeting Schedule...
The North group meets on the second Saturday of each month, and thus will next meet on September 9th. The South group will meet next on September 16th.

We are happy to give blankets if you know of a need. Contact info for our Chapter Coordinator appears at the bottom of the page on the right.

Where we meet in Central Texas (all chapters listed).

Even if you don't want 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 (Here's how! downloadable Adobe PDF guidelines). Since these usually go to older kids, please choose age-appropriate prints and colors. And, since this is Texas, after all, we prefer single layer blankets without knotted fringe.

If you can't get to a meeting but have blankets you can contribute, these businesses support Project Linus by collecting blankets for us. Project Linus appreciates the generous assistance of these businesses and hopes you’ll think of them when it comes time to shop. They are all wonderful folks!

And please put your name and address (or at least your email address) on the bag(s) of your donations so we can write and thank you. We won't give it out to anyone else, we promise.

We've received a number of extremely generous fabric donations from area businesses—the FatQuarterShop.com, for example. With good fabric becoming more expensive, the fabric donations have raised the bar on what our quilters can accomplish. And, likewise, getting the word out about our work with knitters and crocheters helps us immeasureably. We send our gratitude to them too.

If you work with or know of children in crisis situations and would like to receive blankets for them, contact Chapter Coordinator, Brenda Kilburn.
