Stitches from the Heart
Aids Project Los Angeles
What is Project Linus? We are a National Non-Profit Volunteer Organization that provides new, handmade, washable blankets to critically ill and/or traumatized children, 0 to 17 years of age. What can I do to help? If you can sew, quilt, knit, or crochet: you can make a blanket 36x36 up to lap or twin size.  Your blanket can be any pattern, any color(s), using 100% cotton fabric if sewing or acrylic yarn (no wool) if knitting or crocheting.  We also accept knit caps for the babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

They need everything, but from a knitter's point of view they need warm clothing for all ages, baby blankets, lapghans, afghans, and 9" x 9" crocheted or knitted afghan squares.  They will accept hand washable animal fiber items if they are clearly marked as such. They will also accept machine washable items in all fibers. The crocheted squares must be 100% synthetic because the person who puts them together is allergic to wool.  The knitted squares can have a little wool but should be mostly synthetic so the afghans can be machine washed and dried--think Plymouth Encore or Lion Brand Wool-Ease. If guild members wish to donate hand knitted or crocheted items Molly D. will be happy to mail them to South Dakota at my own expense.  Please label each item with the donor's first name, fiber content, and washing instructions.
