Project Linus

Yesterday afternoon, Project Linus and a group of 'blanketeers' took over the use room at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church in Scarborough. Surrounded by piles of fabric, blanket kits and every stitching tool imaginable, they set to work assembling and sewing blankets for children in need. Each blanket is handmade and given to a child who is seriously ill, experiencing trauma or otherwise in need of a bit of warmth and comfort. The Project Linus volunteers host 'Blanket Days' throughout the year all over the country. Check out their website if you're interested in getting involved in this very special project to benefit a child in your community.

Project Linus will also be hosting a Quilt and Blanket Show at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church in Scarborough on Saturday, March 27th from 10AM - 3PM to showcase some of the beautiful blankets they've created.
