Blanketeers Sought!

Saturday, March 3, 2018, Project Linus Volunteer Blanketeers will meet at Valley Grange from 9 AM until noon… no sewing skills required! If you can measure, cut a straight line with scissors and tie a knot you can help make blankets for Project Linus!  The material will be provided… it will be helpful if folks bring scissors, rulers, and masking tape. Students from FA will be joining us… and we are inviting quilting and sewing clubs to lend a hand. A similar event last year resulted in over thirty blankets to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need. Contact Pat Engstrom at 564-8290 for more information.

What a bunch of cut ups!

Over twenty “cut ups” met at Valley Grange recently to manufacture blankets under the direction of Pat Engstrom. (The blankets are made by cutting and tying fringe around the borders.) Several dozen blankets have been made and distributed to the Linus Project and the Veterans’ Home in Bangor. A special thanks goes to the group of students from Foxcroft Academy who attended and pitched in. No doubt we’ll be doing this again!

Project Linus Blanket Day!

You’ll be in stitches… join the Project Linus folks on Saturday, February 20th at the Penquis HIgher Education Center in Dover Foxcroft from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM and help make 100 blankets for Maine Kids! Bring your own sewing machine and choose from three fun classes, work on your own project, or adopt a project in progress. A light breakfast and lunch will be available by donation. Donations of blanket-making supplies are also welcome. For more information email mainelinus@yahoo.com or visit the Project Linus Website.
