Make A Blanket Day Workshop- October 24th, 2015

Join us on October 24th from 10am-9pm at the Westfield Valencia Town Center for our next Make A Blanket Workshop!  You bring the fleece, we’ll bring everything else!  We welcome all community members.  We are so grateful for anyone who participates in our chapter function.  Without you, none of this would be possible. Scroll down to sign up for this event.

Also, we are happy to announce that we will be having a fundraiser with Panda Express! So make sure to drop by the food court and support Project Linus.Panda Express

If you cannot participate in the Blanket Making Event directly, but you want to help, these will directly benefit our cause:

  • please bring a piece of fleece 54″ x 45″ (a yard and a half off of the bolt)  We HIGHLY recommend Joann Fabric as they are wonderful supporters of ours.  Please tell them Project Linus sent you.  We are in need of fleece at the moment.
  • Cash or check donations are always welcome.  Please make checks out to Project Linus and bring them to the check-in table that day, or send them to the address on our donations page
  • Go online to Project Linus National Headquarters and make an online donation to our chapter (BE SURE TO LIST SANTA CLARITA VALLEY / SYLMAR CHAPTER OR ELSE WE MAY NOT RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THE FUNDS). Sharon Garvar Chapter Coordinator
  • Make a purchase from our Amazon wish list and send it to us (address in wish list)
  • Send a Jo-Ann gift card to our chapter address.

  1. Children and Adults are all welcome.  Children under the age of 10 may struggle to participate
  2. Children under the age of 14 MUST be accompanied by an adult and mustsign this insurance waiver in order to participate.  Please bring signed waiver with you.
  3. We ask that all participants sign this photo release form and bring it with them so we can share the success of our event.
  4. If you crochet or sew, you must bring your own supplies and machines.  If you want to make no-sew fleece, please bring a 54″ x 45″ of fleece (a yard and a half cut off of a bolt) with you.  DO NOT CUT THE FLEECE INTO SMALLER PIECES!  You need one piece for each shift you plan to serve. We will provide all the supplies except for       the fleece.  Our supply is currently low.
  5. You may sign up for as many shifts as you feel you can work.  If you need service hours, please bring your service hour form with you.  We cannot go back and sign service hour logs after the event has closed.
  6. Please check in at the table in front of Sears lower level next to Red Robin.  We will then help you find space to work.
  7. We will be doing a fundraiser with Panda Express(food court) on that day.  So make sure to go and support Project Linus.

We look forward to seeing you there!
