Merlene Sanborn displays a Project Linus blanket

The club’s guest today was Merlene Sanborn, representing Project Linus, a national group dedicated to making and distributing hand-made blankets to seriously ill or traumatized children in need. The local chapter is dedicated to “blanketing Maine with love” and is made up of talented quilters and seamstresses who not only produce thousands of beautiful and artful blankets but also teach knitting and quilting to other interested volunteers.

Marlene, who is the Assistant Dean for Graduate & Continuing Education at Thomas College, advised that the group accepts new, handmade, and washable blankets from anyone, not just Project members. They generally accept any size and style, from simple fleece to elaborate quilts. They also accept donations since they are a 100% 501c3 non-profit. They encourage community groups to participate in their efforts. For more information, you can contact Merlene, 561-9225 or mainelinus@yahoo.com.
