The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 40,000 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.

Quilt Kits

Dear Project Linus volunteers,
            If you need some motivation and materials to start a quilt for Make A Blanket Day, we have fabric kits for you! 
These kits were put together with fabric donated to our Project Linus chapter.  Some kits have enough fabric to finish a front; some also have backing fabric. (Batting is NOT included.)  The fabric pieces are not cut, so you can use any quilt pattern that you like. 
            If you are interested in checking out and using a fabric kit, please contact Deanna Winick at 345-3576 or deanna.winick@gmail.com.  Pick up is at Deanna's house this Saturday morning (January 29) or by appointment. Deanna lives in the I-540/Leesville/Lumley/Glenwood area; please contact her for directions.
