    If you've sewn blankets for "Binky Patrol", please share your experience (s) with me. I'm adding them to my list of donors for my quilts. Does anyone go to the chapter "Bink-a-thons"?

    Hi there,

    A few years back I was quite active in a Chapter of Binkey Patrol in WA state. I really enjoyed it. No pressure. The meetings were on a Sunday and about a 45 minute drive with good traffic. I liked that I could write them off as a donation on my taxed. We would donate to a lot of local groups in need. Quite rewarding.

    I had to quit because of time and gas among other reasons. I think they are a great group.

    Enjoy and Blessing this Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    Colleen aka lovequilts

    I have a Binky Patrol Unit here inMI. We are new but I like that we are not limited to who we can donate the quilts to and that we use many designs and fabrics that other groups will not let you.

    I'm a chapter leader for Binky Patrol currently on Long Island (NY). We are quite active, and we're still growing in members! We are having a Bink-A-thon in two weeks on Feb. 19th at 3.

    What a wonderful thing to do for the babies! I still haven't gotten connected to a chapter here...working on it tho...

    Do you have anyone in your chapter who doesn't attend meetings...just works on the quilts at home and sends them over to you? That's what I'm looking for in a chapter here.
