TLC Makers Club

This winter our TLC student council came to me saying, "we really want to do more in the TLC to help others." Pretty awesome thing to say! But really, a pretty challenging thing to do when you are on an isolated island.

That is why we came up with the idea of "Makers Club!" 

The idea behind makers club is that each month students and assisting adults make something that can be donated to folks who need it.

For the month of March the TLC Makers Club decided to make blankets to donate to Project Linus!

Each island held their own Makers club either during or after school hours and started making blankets.

These two cuties on Frenchboro made these super soft "no-sew" blankets to donate AND they just finished up a third blanket which they used an actual sewing machine to make! 

The Cliff Island School also made some no-sew blankets during an "in-school" Makers Club!

These blankets are snuggle-approved!

The Ashley Bryan School worked diligently on three "no-sew" blankets to donate.

Millie lended her blanket making skills during the process!

It took TWO sessions of Makers Club to produce these three lovely blankets.

And this super-star mom on Islesford made this gorgeous "mermaid" blanket to donate on behalf of the TLC!

Isle au Haut worked together to crochet a beautiful blanket during in school "makers club!"

The TLC inspired other makers to donate quilts to the Linus Project as well! Two talented quilters from Rockland made these GORGEOUS quilts to send on behalf of the TLC!

Because of all our making we have 12 gorgeous and warm blankets to send to children in our state who need a little extra love, warmth, and care!

Thank you TLC Makers for all of your work and generosity!
