The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 42,000 blankets have been delivered to many local groups and agencies that help seriously ill or traumatized children who need a HUG from a blanket including: Wake Med Hospitals, Rex Hospital, Duke Hospital NICU, Safe Space (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, the children at Salvation Army, Children's Flight of Hope, and Wake County Social Services.

There are many ways to take part in all the fun.

The Knit-a-Thon will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and you can attend for all day or part of the day. If you are planning to attend, please sign up with Vickie Kloster. If you have any questions, please contact Janet Rapp

We will have some yarn available which has been donated by Coats and Clark, or you can bring along your own yarn, previously made squares, or ongoing project.
