We meet monthly at Michael's Crafts in Spring Valley, and about every 6 weeks in Larchmont. Our meetings are open to everyone and you don't need to have completed a blanket to attend. At our meetings we sew on labels and share experiences, patterns and stories.
We welcome all sewers, knitters, crocheters and anyone who wants to help. There is no minimum number of blankets that need to be donated. We do ask that all blankets be new, handmade, machine washable, and come from smoke-free homes.
We also welcome donations of fabric, yarn, other blanket making materials.

Project Linus is a national, volunteer, not-for-profit organization with a simple goal: Provide a little security, warmth, and comfort to babies and children in need. Named after the blanket-toting character in Charles Schultz' Peanuts cartoon strip, Project Linus gives a new handmade blanket to children who are in a hospital, have been in an accident, are suffering through the loss of a loved one, or are in foster care, homeless or in other challenging situations.

The Westchester-Rockland Chapter of Project Linus has been in existence for over 20 years! In that time we have donated over 20,000 blankets to hospitals, family shelters, ambulance corps, schools and more.
