Makers across the country craft Welcome Blankets for refugee families coming to the United States, and share stories of their family’s own immigration, migration, or relocation. These works are exhibited online or at cultural institutions across the country to amplify the effort. After they are shown, Welcome Blankets are distributed through refugee organizations as symbolic and practical gifts of welcome for our newest neighbors. 

Right now, we are in-between shows, so we are running Welcome Blanket "On Call", an opportunity to directly support a specific partner organization and have an online show. Miry’s List is our current Welcome Blanket On Call Partner.

Please log your Welcome Blanket online here prior to sending to help us with our archive and so we can share your gorgeous contribution to this national project! 

So far, more than 7,000 blankets have been made and gifted.

1. Make a Welcome Blanket
Everyone is welcome to craft a Welcome Blanket. All mediums are welcome. We even have a pattern to try (https://www.welcomeblanket.org/patterns) and some wonderful examples (https://www.welcomeblanket.org/gallery). 

Design guidelines: 
- 40”X40” 
- Easy to care for and 
- Hard to give away (it should hurt a little bit because you love it so much!)

2. Write a Welcome Note
With your Welcome Blanket, please include a story important to your family about immigration, migration, or relocation along with some words of welcome for the recipient of your Welcome Blanket gift.

Please include your name (anonymous is ok!), city/state, and care instructions.
