We meet to sew twice a year = our next party is October 22, 2016 from 9-3 with lunch provided by Western & Southern Insurance.
On the sewing days we bring sewing machines, ironing boards, cutting boards and needles and thread and help out wherever needed and based on our talents. We also have kids sitting on the floor with moms or scout leaders tying the fleece blankets. If you go to the Project Linus web site you see lots of patterns and ideas. The rules for our chapter are simple: all of our blankets need to be new and homemade of the softest material and yarns; they need to be free of smoke, pet hair and perfume and most importantly made with love. The smallest size we will accept is 36×36. We serve children from infant to 18 years with most of our blankets going to shelters and hospitals. We are on track to donate close to 2,000 blankets this year.
When your blankets are finished we have a drop site at: Faith@Work, 1977 E. Wattles, Troy. Closed Sunday. If you need more info please call me at 248-828-7511.
