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.

These Blanket Ladies Are Awesome!

From June 2010 to August 2011, the Cary Blanketeers have donated more than 500 blankets to Project Linus.

Recently, several of their blankets were sent to Fort Bragg, to comfort children of deployed military personnel.
These ladies ARE awesome, and their blankets are always beautiful and well crafted, with a little love stitched into each one.  Sit and stitch with them at the next meeting,  on Wednesday September 7th, from 10am-12noon at AC Moore in Cary.  New members are always welcome!
Find them on Facebook!  Their Facebook page features photos of blankets, patterns and coupons.  You may also contact Pam Wilson for more information.
