  1. Thanks for making these blankets it made my sons day! After his terrible day your blanket put a much needed smile on his face. I sincerely appreciate it!

  2. Thanks for making these blankets, ours has really helped my 2 year old son be comforted after surgery. He truly drags in around like Linus and loves to snuggle with it. I can’t express how much it means to us!

  3. Thank you very much for making these blankets. My son Cameron is not even 2 and we just returned from a stay at PRMC. He wouldn’t wear the gown or use the hospital blankets. Slept all through the night thanks to the frog blanket and is a much healthier boy because of the rest. Thanks again!

    • Thank you for letting us know about your experience. It’s so rewarding to know that our mission is succeeding. We hope Cameron continues to thrive. Joyce Pickett, Chapter Coordinator

    • Thank you for your interest in Project Linus. Unfortunately, we do not have a drop off site in Kendallville. The two Fort Wayne sites are JoAnn Fabrics at 4616 Coldwater Road and Edwards Sewing Center at 4114 North Clinton Street. We also have two drop off sites in Angola: JoAnn Fabrics at 2010 North Wayne Street and Sewing Sewlutions at 1650 South Wayne Street.

  4. Hello, my name is Cindy Atkinson, co-chair of GiGi’s Playhouse coming to Fort Wayne. I would love to speak to someone to see if we could put your wonderful baby/child blankets in our new Participants tote bags. We are a Down syndrome achievement center coming to Fort Wayne. Our website is gigisplayhouse.org/fortwayne. Please call me at your convenience. Blessings, Cindy

    • Cindy – I received your phone message and we will talk more when we can connect. Thank you for your interest in Project Linus.

  5. Hi… It sounds like your wonderful organization’s emphasis is on cloth blankets. I am an ex- knitter due to arthritis with a huge collection of new yarn purchased in the last two to four years. It is being stored in plastic storage boxes. Do you have a need for it at this time, or a limit to the number of skeins you can accept? As far as your preference for “soft” yarn, are there any brands that you would prefer not to accept? Thank you, Sharon

    • Sharon – thank you for your interest in Project Linus. Our preference for yarn is worsted weight 4 ply but we do use a limited amount of sport weight yarn. There are no brands that we do not accept but we are unable to use rug or craft yarn (heavier weight types). If you wish to make a donation our house is located at 2401 Lake Avenue (next to Salem United Church of Christ) and we will be there every Wednesday from 1100 until 3:00 except for Wednesday, December 30. If that is not convenient for you please contact me and we can make other arrangements. Joyce Pickett, Chapter Coordinator

  6. I wanted to express how thankful we are for your wonderful donation of such a beautiful kid friendly “blankie.” My 2 year old daughter was recently at the hospital for a short stay. She had to have several tests and had big machines and alot of wires. Trying to explain all of that was HARD. But talking about all the animals that were hand colored on her blanket was easy! Rrrriibbbiittt!! Mmmoooo!! Mmmmeeooowww!! I loved how personal it was. Children had colored individual square pictures that were sewn together all with love. We appreciate it so much!! It was such a simple kind gesture that ment so much more. It was the first thing she noticed when walking in the room NOT the big scary machines and equipment! You are all doing a wonderful thing!! Keep up the great work and never get discouraged from the wonderful thing you are doing for children!!

    • Meagan – On behalf of all our dedicated volunteers that make our blankets, thank you for sharing your experience. We love what we do and are thrilled when we learn how one of our blankets has helped a little one through a scary time. We hope your daughter continues to get better.

  7. I have quite a bit of yarn to donate. Much of it is wool, alpaca, etc. and must be dry cleaned. Do you take this kind of yarn? If not, can you recommend a place that could use it? Where do I take it to make sure it goes to a worthy cause?
    Thank you!

    • Terry – unfortunately we can only use yarn that is washable but we do have a volunteer that is able to disperse pretty much anything we can’t use to other charitable organizations. Another option might be the senior center in Fort Wayne. I hope this is helpful. Thank you for your interest in Project Linus.

    • Leticia – thank you for your interest in Project Linus. I did a little research about fabric paint on fleece and it doesn’t appear to be a great option, mostly because of the texture of the fabric. Some of the comments included trouble having it look neat/clean, needing to use a lot of paint which made it “gloppy,” and possible issues when washing the finished product (the paint could flake off since it’s not easy to coat the entire surface of the design). If you are wanting to “dress up” solid color fleece, using an applique or two would be a better option. Since I haven’t actually tried this, you might want to check with JoAnn Fabrics or a manufacture of fabric paint for further information.

  8. Thank you so much for the blanket. My daughter had to have surgery on her hand today. She has very bad anxiety and the blanket really helped her.

    • You are so welcome. I will pass your thank you on to our volunteers. I hope your daughter’s recovery goes well.
