Making blankets for charity
The Sonoma Blanket Brigade invites the community to attend a no-sew blanket-making workshop on Friday, Aug. 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Vintage House, 246 First St. E.
The acrylic fleece blankets are simple to make, require no sewing, and are donated to various charities in the Valley and beyond. So far, the group has donated more than 300 blankets to groups such as the Valley of the Moon Children's Home, YWCA Safe House, Haiti earthquake victims and Infineon Raceway Speedway charities.
Participants will be expected to purchase fabric and make two blankets to be donated. To register for the workshop or for more information, call Margaret Bell at 933-1693 or Micki Goedewaagen at 996-1909 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
