Members of the Mamakating Library Needlework Club donated their time and the materials to create eleven beautiful children’s blankets for Project Linus. Each blanket was created with two layers of polar fleece in colorful patterns selected especially for children. The edges were cut and tied, as can be seen below.
The mission of Project Linus is “to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer ‘blanketeers.'”
The following members of the Needlework Club became “blanketeers” for Project Linus:
Georgette Larner, Janet Morse, Alma Buckley, Nancy Harder, Lisa King, Pat Blanco, Kitty Mitchell, Marcia Allen and Mary-Lee Westbrook
The Mamakating Library Needlework Club meets every Saturday from 12:45 to 3:45 p.m. in the library’s community room. All are welcome.
