I’m so pleased to say that after a lot of work and discussion behind the scenes, we have decided to move forward with the Schuyler Blanket Project! We are continuing to get details in place, but we are taking requests and finishing up current blankets.
One of the most common comments was regarding how contributors are informed of our needs. There were several requests for emails each time a new request comes in. Unfortunately, this is not a practical option for us at the moment. I would encourage you to join Ravelry and keep up with us there. The posts I write on this site are also linked to the group on Facebook, so please feel free to join us there as well.
At this point, we are not taking pledges for individual blankets. Instead, we are going to continue as we had been most recently. We have several collection points in the US and on in Canada. We are accepting squares on an ongoing basis. Please email me or one of the other moderators for the collection point closest to you. We are looking for a volunteer to collect squares in Europe.
A list of blankets that are in the queue will be posted shortly. If you would like your contribution to go to a specific blanket, please send a note along with your donation and we will do our best to fulfill your request. Squares should still be 8×8″, soft, and washable. Please weave in your ends or leave a tail of at least 6″.
