Generous “In Kind” Donations
Thanks to these people who have donated in support of children who need a blanket hug.
Pat Ames, who donated quilt kits in December, again presented us with enough snuggly cotton batting to share with our contributing quilters. She also decided to give our chapter the 56 beautiful hand made receiving blankets that she had intended for sale on her Etsy site.
Elaine Erickson, who last summer contributed yarn and blanket/burp hemstitched sets; has again emptied her “stash.” We have more blanket/burp sets and several plastic bags of yarn - Kitchen size bags!
Majestic Elementary School contributed fleece - 40 pieces. Their intention was to make blankets, but much as they tried, the children were not able to turn the fabric into PL blankets. The fleece was still useable after the edges were removed. We appreciate their good intentions.
Kim Weis and husband Steve (Kimie Ann Fabrics) have volunteered to donate their long arm quilting process on about 10 quilts a month for PL. She will be working with the Square Corner Quilters and Project Linus will receive the quilts.
Someone dropped off 15 beautiful crocheted afghans at Annie’s Quilt Shop in West Jordan. No contact information was left on the blankets. So much wish I could contact this person to thank her. The handwork is fabulous!
Audrey Slabbert teaches her grandchildren to make something nice for a child in need. The children are ages 8,6,5, &4 and all helped on the quilt.
Our Blanketeers, who continue to buy fabric and supplies, are grateful for donations. They are happy to receive all the donated fabric, batting, thread, yarn and quilt tops. They continue to produce beautiful blankets for children.
