Project Linus Blanket Bee
Date: Sunday, September 27
Time: 12pm – 5pm
Location: All Pacific Fabrics stores

Project Linus is a national organization that collects handmade quilts for children in need. The quilts are brought to area hospitals, summer camps and anywhere children need the special warmth of a handmade quilt or blanket created by a network of “blanketeers.”

Pacific Fabrics in Seattle is holding a Blanket Bee to put together quilts for the Project Linus organization. I attended the bee last fall, and I can’t explain what a great event it is. I met some amazing people who craft simply and quietly for children in need.

You don’t need to know how to quilt to help at the Blanket Bee. If you can tie a knot, you can help hand tie quilts! Hope to see you there!
