Project Linus Charlotte, NC

Meeting  Place and Time:

The meeting for Tuesday, June 12, 2018, will be  located near the intersection of Highway 51 and Lawyers Road intersection. The hours are 4:00 pm till 7:45p.m.  UNLESS there is voting going on.  We will determine that soon and post that information here.

We are very casual and have a good time while working on our blankets.  You don't have to be "on time" or stay the whole time, so come when you can and leave when you wish.  We will be looking for you. **************************************************************** 

We don't give formal sewing lessons at our meetings, but we do teach at Quilt Club. If you wish to learn to quilt or improve your skills, as well as make quilts for Project Linus, please join us on the first Friday of each month, in Locust, NC, at the West Stanly Senior Center located at Town Center next to the Ace Hardware store.  We meet at 10:00 am, led by the capable hands of Judy Lynch and Nancy Wells, and usually finish up around 3 PM. Bring your sewing machine, thread, scissors, and a bag lunch. We also have a couple of machines there which have been donated, in case you don't have one.  We  have fun and make some awesome quilts.  Contact us for more info on this.

  If you are scheduling a group Make a Blanket Session, please contact us and we will be most happy to come to your event, bring supplies needed, and teach your group the proper technique for making better fleece blankets for our area.   We have found that children under 5th grade age do not have the skills to make blankets, so take this into consideration when thinking of this as a mission/service project. The national Project Linus organization requires that the blankets we distribute be made to certain standards. If they don't meet those requirements, we cannot deliver them to the children without substantial remaking on our part. Please try to make fleece blankets as neat and well done as possible so we don't have to remake them.  It takes much more time to remake poorly made blankets, which keeps them from the hands of the children who need them.

At this time, we are into June with planned Make-a-Blanket sessions.  We won't be scheduling any Make a Blanket Sessions in July or August.  If you must have one then, let me know Crewsquarters@aol.com.

Please go to the page titled "Schedule a Session" to find our information needs and email us your answers to them, so we can help you with your session.  


 We are not able to receive any donations of yarn or fabric at this time.  Hopefully, that will soon change, so keep checking back with us here for further notice on in kind donations.
