Make baby blankets for hospitalized infants and toddlers

We have a recurring meetup the first Sunday of each month. No "official" start time. Drop in whenever you can. We ship the baby blankets to hospitals all over the 4-state Midwest region. We make them simple and quick. No larger than 36"x36". Minimum 28" x 28" which you can make with just 2 skeins of yarn. Knit, crochet, no-sew fleece: we love them all. Plenty of 40%-off coupons from nearby Michaels. Come in to visit awhile and work on a project (always great fun), or just drop by to leave a blanket and/or get some information.

    Hi Gregory - absolutely bring your kids! They will love seeing the blankets, and maybe even working on one.

    This sounds great - would it be okay if I bring my kids?

    Hi Fatima- see There are always coupons available there for printing or even sending to your smartphone. Note the start and ending dates carefully. It's easy to miss, and I have been known to show up with a coupon that was either expired, or not yet valid. Sometimes the sales clerk keeps a spare coupon to scan for such times, but not always. The coupon is almost always valid for a week, starting on Sunday, ending on Saturday.

    I'm Colleen. I'm an avid knitter and crocheted, and I'm hoping to meet some like-minded folks.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
