Welcome Blanket Brookline

stack of handmade blankets

Calling all Brookline knitters, quilters, crocheters, sewers, and crafters! Welcome Blanket, a national craftivism project, asks participants to create blankets and notes of welcome to give to immigrants and refugees. Each blanket is displayed in an exhibit and then sent to resettlement agencies to be delivered to our newest neighbors. A Brookline-based Welcome Blanket knitting circle comes together each month to create and talk about immigration. All levels of crafting ability welcomed. Please bring your materials to work on.
