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.

Sew-In at Spoonflower on June 8

Sign up and join us for a Mini-MABD Sew-In on June 8th!
SPOONFLOWER INC. specializes in custom digitally printed fabric and is generously helping us create more blankets for Project Linus.  Spoonflower is donating 20 "cheater quilts” and other printed fabric to make quilts!  Check them out http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/154  Have fun exploring the amazing fabrics on their website.

Do you want to come and sew with us?  Please email Deanna Winick by May 8thdeanna.winick@gmail.com if you are interested. There is only room for 20 sewing participants for each shift. All you need to bring is yourself, your sewing machine (and basic notions) and a fun attitude!

If you would like to help out in other ways, please join us. We will need help ironing, cutting and assembling the blankets. There is plenty of room for our wonderful knitters and crocheters too! A circle can be formed like we do at our annual MABD.   *** Sorry, this is not an event to make fleece-tie blankets***
