Our first post will be for Project Linus. We have a local Cumberland-York County Chapter that provided 1,530 blankets in 2014. Melodie Provost is the coordinator for this chapter and is always looking for donations of quilt blocks, fabric and of course, finished quilts.
Project Linus blankets can be made of various materials, such as fleece, knitted or crocheted. Quilts can be tied. The important key is that they must be new, handmade, washable and free from odors or pet hair.
Sizes they accept are as follows:
Preemie-36" x 36"
Toddlers-36" x 42"
Older children-40" x 54-60"
Teens-48" x 65+" (This is the size they need most)
Drop-off points are:
Freeport-Cotton Weeds Quilt Shop
Windham-Rosemary's Gift & Yarn Shop
N. Windham-Calico Basket Quilt Shop
Sebago Lake Village-The Korner Knitters
S. Portland-A.C. Moore
