Please bring a blanket project that you are working on and any tools that you will need. At many blanket events, you can participate in our fabric exchange. Bring a 1½ yard piece of child-friendly fleece and exchange it for a prepared piece of fleece. You will be ready to create a Penny blanket. 

Blanket Day
Saturday, every other month
9:00 AM - 1:30 PM
1133 Pfingsten, Northbrook, IL
Join the fun at the Gloria Dei Church for a day of blanket making. We usually have 60-80 blanketeers sewing Kids Helping Kids squares, knitting and crocheting beautiful afghans and tying the fringe or crocheting edges on fleece blankets. We process between 600 – 1000 blankets at each meeting. There is usually a table full of fabric and yarn where the price is right – FREE! Of course, please stay as long as your schedule allows. Bring a bag lunch if you want to stay through lunch. Drinks and sweets are always ready to keep you full of energy. Just for fun, we have a table of small door prizes which are given out throughout the day. It is a wonderful day of making new friends, chatting with old friends and learning new techniques. It is 
always fun to see the other blankets that people create. Such talented blanketeers we have! Reservations are a must so call Judi 
at 847-498-3987 or email her at ChicagolandLinus@gmail.com. Hope to see you there!
