 Dear Blanketeers,
 Welcome to the new Blanketeers who have joined our chapter during the past month, we’re so glad to have you with us and hope you’ll love Project Linus as much as we do.   Be sure and let Kristin or Millie know if you have any questions.

“Make a Blanket Day” for the north VALLEY WILL be Monday april 1st (no foolin!)... come join us at Our Saviour’s Lutheran church 3900 S. 2500 E. From 10-1.   Bring your lunch – we have a wonderful time!! **keep the date we'll meet again april 29th**

The next South Valley “Make a Blanket Day” will be tuesday april 16th at the South Jordan Library from 10:15 – 1:00.  sorry, no food at the library.

Spring is in the air!!  (or it needs to be)  Please note the dates for North valley.  We will meet April 1st & April 29th to accommodate schedules.  There will not be a North Valley meeting in May.

Here's a note I have to share...this was from an email this morning from West Jordan Guardian ad Litem:

We LOVE your blankets and will always take them if available (plus...
we have our back to back shelter weeks coming up shortly and love to
have supplies on hand)  :)

Love you guys and all you do!


So if you ever wonder the impact that your beautiful work makes, never doubt again.  I love doing deliveries, because it's so wonderful & everyone is always happy to see us with Project Linus Blankets.  I am always receiving feedback about how wonderful, bright, fun colors & well made our blankets are.  Thank you for all you do!!

We love getting phone calls asking us to pick up blankets, but Jean Peterson prefers to deliver them directly to Kristin.  We were so excited to receive that call a couple of weeks ago & Jean has the back of her SUV  full of quilts.  They are bright, fun prints, and have been  pieced & tied. 

Her dedication is wonderful & we are always excited to receive the next batch.  Jean even rallied her young women at church last year to help in her love of blanket making.   If  you look real close, you can see that some of Jean's works of art are embroidered.  She will stitch the squares & then set them into quilts.   Each quilt is hand tied and just perfect.   Thank you Jean for your quilting talents.  We always enjoy your beautiful blankets & know that a child in need is comforted by your works of  love.

Reminder...North Valley ladies you will meet in the West Wing of the Church on Monday, April 1st from 10am-1pm & again Monday, April 29th from 10am-2pm.  There will NOT be a meeting in May.
Thank you for all you do!  Every little part, makes a world of difference! 

Happy Easter,Happy spring!  Happy, Happy Everything!

Hugs to all, Kristin & Millie
