Project Linus

Project Linus arrived in the UK in March 2000, coming over from from it’s founder country the USA.  The idea behind project Linus is very simple, for volunteers to make a quilt or blanket which in turn, is given to a child. Each quilt receives its very own project Linus label.

The child who receives the quilt or blanket may be a premature baby, cancer patient, seriously ill abused or traumatised. A child in need of a big hug.

Quilt go to refuges, hospitals etc. local to our area. Montague Patchers became involved several years ago and keeps local hospitals supplied with a steady flow of quilts.  The members of Montague Patchers send their “Hugs” in many shapes and sizes and in all the colours of the rainbow.  From the many thank-you letters we have received the staff and carers enjoy looking at our quilts too, eagerly awaiting a new batch , which sadly will always be needed. The quilts pictured here were made by Alma Wilkinson and Alison Bothwick.
