Make a blanket day, May 4, at Rindge Meetinghouse

A community “Make A Blanket Day” to benefit Project Linus will be held at the Meetinghouse on May 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Blankets from polar fleece will be made as well as “Make a Square to Build an Afghan” blankets. Patterns for the afghan squares can be found on the Craft Yarn Council website at www.craftyarncouncil.com/patterns.html.

Volunteers are asked to bring their own materials. Anyone interested in working on quilts or other afghans are requested to bring sewing machines, yarn and needles.

Donations can be handmade blankets, fabric, yarn, gift cards to fabric stores or monetary donations or by making blankets in their home.

Project Linus is a national nonprofit organization, dedicated to “Providing Security Through Blankets,” for ill or traumatized children and teens. Handmade blankets are lovingly crafted by volunteers of new, washable fabrics or yarn in bright child-friendly colors and prints.

The event is being sponsored by the Monadnock Region NH Chapter of Project Linus and the First Congregation Church in Rindge.
