Welcome to the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Chapter of Project Linus. We hope you find here answers to your questions as well as an outlet for your creativity and caring. The children of Bernalillo County are waiting for the loving warmth of your blanket creations.
Project Linus Blanketeers and members of the sewing community came together on Saturday to assemble Isolette Covers for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at UNMH. Jeana Brosseau, Pam Brandt, and Cheryl Mirabal, who managed the event, prepared enough fleece to complete 40 Isolette Covers at the event. We were able to complete 36 blankets.
Hip-Stitch generously provided full use of their lovely south and west facing classroom.
Jeana manages a group that meets monthly at Manzano Mesa Multi-Generational Center to work on maintaining an inventory of Isolette Covers. You can contact
her at email@example.com or 350-1746.
Thank you Hip-Stitch!

Annual Volunteer Appreciation Brunch
Hosted by First Christian Church 10101 Montgomery Blvd NE
Monday April 27, 2019
On April 27, 2019 the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Brunch was once again well attended and, by all appearances, enjoyed by all. First Christian Church (FCC) at 10101 Montgomery Blvd NE provided the venue and a large team of volunteers joined with the Bernalillo County Chapter Service Team to accomplish the myriad of details it takes to plan and hold a reception for some 110 guests. The speaker panel was Bobby Ehrig from the Veterans Integration Centers and Joey Wilson from the Albuquerque Public School's Title I Homeless project. Words of acknowledgment and memories of our past chapter coordinator, Carol Driscoll, by FCC Pastor Tom Caffery brought tears to the eyes of many people present in the room.
The knit/ crochet group on Monday mornings has been suspended due to COVID-19 .
The Volunteer Appreciation Brunch is tentatively rescheduled for August 22, 2020
