over a dozen people join us at the Beaverton Library to cut fabric

Hands On Portland broke the MLK Bink A Thon into two parts:  one to cut and prep the fabric and the other to sew them all together.  Today we had over a dozen people join us at the Beaverton Library to cut fabric, make blanket sandwiches for sewing on Monday and tying fleece blankets.

Thank you Hands On and all who attended.  We also had several people show up to drop blankets off that they made at home!
