Welcome to the new Blanketeers who have joined our chapter during the past month. We have exciting news – We’re starting a BLOG for our local chapter. The address is slcprojectlinus.blogspot.com. On the blog you’ll find the current newsletter, updates on blanket donations, instructions for making fleece blankets (great for people who don’t attend Make a Blanket Days and want to make fleece blankets), and do’s and don’ts. Kristin Vance is the fabulous blanketeer, with loads of energy and enthusiasm who suggested we start this blog. I’m learning about it as we go along and I encourage you visit the blog and add your input – what would you like to see there?
