  2. Children under the age of 14 MUST be accompanied by an adult and must sign 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.

  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.
  8. Please bring fleece and we will supply you with everything else!
