September 2017 Newsletter

September 2017 Newsletter

Hello Blanketeers,

Remember – the first Monday this month is Labor Day, so Linus Blanket Day at Our Saviour’s Church will be the next Monday the 11th of September.

                        Service Project – Herriman South Stake

In this picture I am working with the women of Herriman South LDS Stake to cut and prepare fleece fabric, and to teach our fringe-loop pattern.  This service event is directed by Lisa LaStarge and includes women from several wards.  Their plan is to make 75 to 100 blankets for us to distribute to children in need of a hug.  Thanks to all the participants for giving their monetary contribution as well as their time and effort to this project.

Blanketeer Beckie Bailey

Thanks to Beckie who makes blankets and is also a whiz-kid on her computer.  You will notice the changes on the newsletter where our blanket making patterns and instructions have been updated complete with pictures as tutorial.   Many people call or email me to ask about how to make blankets.  Now all I have to do is ask them to go to our blogspot and they will have all the information and directions. 

Thanks to all of you as well who continue to sew, crochet, quilt, fringe, deliver, donate and all the other things you all do to make our chapter productive and successful.
