Project Linus Charity Days
Can you help Project Linus and Tudor Rose Patchwork provide comfort and security for babies, children and teenagers who are sick, disabled, distressed or disadvantaged?
Then come along to Tudor Rose Patchwork and work with the Project Linus team to help make wonderful charity quilts to help critically ill children. You can make a quilt of your own design, or you can head to the Project Linus website for free patterns.
To participate in any of these days, the team making the quilts for Project Linus would appreciate a donation of £2.50 towards the materials used.
There will also be a raffle on each of our Linus days so bring along a spare pound or two if you would like to buy a ticket.
Linus days run from 10-4 but you are welcome to attend for half a day if this is the time you have spare.
Linus days run on the following Fridays:
11th October 2019
8th November 2019
13th December 2019
Make a quilt or knitted blanket at the group or donate your own to Project Linus UK (also accept part-finished quilts or blocks), all sizes of quilt are acceptable but suggested sizes are approximately:
24" Square for tinies - this is the most useful size
36" Square for young children
42" Square for older children
42" x 54" for teenagers
Please do not add embellishments (such as buttons or ribbons) as these can come off and be swallowed.
Please make sure the quilt has adequate quilting, we recommend the stitching is not more that 4" apart
Knitted or Crocheted blankets must be made out of acrylic, not wool. Quilts need to be 100% cotton - however wadding can be cotton, polyester or mixed fibres. All quilts and blankets need to be machine washable.
If you need any more information you can call us on 01234 824983, email us firstname.lastname@example.org or just drop in and talk to the counter staff.
Please let us know if you are coming, it'll be a fun day for a good cause so we hope to see a lot of you there.
