About

We will be having our annual Blanket Making Day and will be adding a Quilt Contest again.

Quilt Kits for Halloween or Christmas Quilts are being handed out at the meetings until they are gone. These kits are being used as a suggested quilt and you can add or delete to this kit as you want to. Crochet and knitted blankets will be accepted into the contest, however, no sew fleece ones will not be entered.

You can purchase additioinal quilt kits at $5 to add to your chances of winning or use the quilt kit for your own project.

Make your blanket and bring it to the October 8th blanket day. Each blanket will be on display at this meeting to be voted on.

Each guest at the blanket day will receive a ticket to vote for the best blanket. There will be one for Halloween and another for Christmas (Holiday). A new Project Linus bag will be awarded to each winner. The one with the most votes will in addition receive a $50 Joann's gift card.

Come bring the children and have some fun learning how to make a donated no sew fleece blanket, activities for the children, sewing instructions and much more!

No reservation is needed but if you can let us know you are coming it will help us plan the day.

  • If you want to bring fleece for this event please bring a 1 1/4 yds piece or
  • A skein of acrylic yarn
