Make a Blanket Day

Calling all quilters, knitters, crocheters, or fleece-crafters!

Join together with other local "blanketeers" to make hand-made blankets for local children in need. You can bring your sewing machine, an afghan in progress, or whatever you need to work on a blanket or two. Can't sew or knit? You can still help with no-sew fleece blankets or by tying & labeling finished blankets. Drop in for an hour or the whole day. All blankets and donated materials will go to the New Hanover/Brunswick/Pender chapter of Project Linus


If you would like to donate fabric or other materials to Make A Blanket Day, please remember that Project Linus needs kid- and teen-friendly woven fabrics in cotton/cotton blend or flannel (to be used for quilts).

  • Fleece is also needed to make no-sew blankets.

  • Knitters and crocheters can use non-woolen yarn.

  • Quilt batting, spare sewing thread, quilting pins, sewing machine needles, and scissors can all be used to help our "blanketeers".

  • Materials must be new, unused, washable, and free of contaminants such as mold, mildew, and smoke.

  • Items Project Linus cannot use: upholstery fabric, synthetic or knit fabrics, wool or novelty yarns.
