I would like to add this program to the list:
The Handmade Afghan Project (HAP)
is a program that collects 6 inch x 9 inch rectangles. They get togethor every 2-3 months for a "Put togethor Party" where they sew 49 of them togethor to make 1 blanket. Then they hand them out to Military Hospitals in the U.S. and Afghanistan.
The website is found at http://www.rectangle6x9.org/
You can email Deborah and let her know your interested. She will sign you up with their listserve and you will get emails with updates. They also have a forum that will be available to you.
Their next put togethor party is July 13, 2008
It's a great program to be a part of. They have delivered over 1,000 afghans to date.
