Join us for these fun casual events held at some of Columbus' finest craft breweries. You can enjoy food and beverages while making a "no-sew" fleece blanket for kids in foster care! Sponsor a “no-sew” blanket for $10! It takes less than an hour using only a pair of scissors (and even less than that if you choose from one of our “pre-cut” fleece)!
Monday, July 29, 6:30 - 8:00 pm - The Draft Room, 570 Schrock Rd., Westerville, Ohio We will do our best to reserve seats so you all have space to make your blankets, and when you arrive, just look for the person with all the fleece to sign in! The Draft Room has generously donated an item to raffle that evening. More information and register here
Thursday, August 8, 6:30 - 8:00 pm - Warped Wing Brewing Co., 26 Wyandot Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402 Join us for our first event in Dayton! It takes less than an hour, and since all of our fleece for this event will be pre-cut, you have more time and space to enjoy a beer with other attendees. We are unable to reserve seats or tables for this event, but Warped Wing has a spacious taproom that provides ample seating. When you arrive, just look for the person with all the fleece to sign in!

Meetup & Make Blankets
We have an exciting new partnership with a MeetUp group called Meet-2-Eat, organized by Edy DeGood. They meet twice a month, evenings and Saturday mornings, at our workshop to make “no-sew” fleece blankets, followed by an opportunity to go out together for a meal or beverage.
If you have wanted to make some blankets for MVOB but can’t get to our workshop on weekday mornings, these events are for you! New members of the group are always welcome.
This is a super easy and fun way to give to Ohio children in need. All you need to do is bring yourself and $10 (cash, check or credit card) and we will show you exactly what to do. One blanket can be completed in 40 to 45 minutes.
All will be held at: MVOB Workshop, 407 W. Main Street, Westerville
Wednesday, July 24, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Thursday, September 26, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Wednesday, November 13, 6:30 pm- 8:00 pm Learn more and register
