Piles Of Love: Project Linus Make A Blanket Day 2006

20 February, 2006

MAHWAH , NJ-- In honor of National Make A Blanket Day on Friday February 17th, Janome America, Inc. and its employees devoted time throughout their work day to sew blankets for Project Linus. The day began at 9 am and by 6 pm we had already exceeded our goal for this year. In addition to their all day sewing event, employees are also encouraged to sew at their leisure to help the cause.

Saturday Morning, February 18: As The Blankets Roll In
EUGENE , OR -- At 10 am on National Make A Blanket Day (February 18) Karen Burdick estimated that she had already received 80 hand made blankets. She expected that by the 5 PM deadline, the pile would nearly cover the front windows on the left side of her store.
As the co-owner of Paramount Sewing & Vacuum in Eugene, Oregon, she has participated in the special day for Project Linus ever since Janome became an official sponsor.

Each carefully folded and tagged blanket has a story behind it. Somebody cared enough to spend the time and fabric to make a hand made blanket for a needy child.
