Pillowcase Challenge!

When: May 6, 2017
10:00 am
Details: We are hosting a special event on Saturday and we need you to make it work!  For several years, we have participated in the American Patchwork and Quilting 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge.  We've lost count of how many pillowcases we have passed on to charity, but it's definitely in the thousands!  The APQ website states that their tally of pillowcases donated is about 3/4 of the way to the 1 million goal--724,979!  That's a lot of pillowcases!

The pillowcases that have been donated by customers and dropped off here at the store are donated to the Harriet Tubman Women's Shelter.  On Saturday, May 6, we are going to host a pillowcase work day for anyone who can attend.  From 10 AM-4 PM, we will have serger machines ready for you to use for pillowcase construction.  It's super simple, and don't worry if you've never used a serger before.  We will help you successfully create a pillowcase, and maybe you'll even like using the serger!  We have stacks of pillowcase kits all pressed, trimmed and ready for you!

Here's one of our previous volunteers doing her part for the cause--

Thank you!

When you participate, we always like to show our appreciation for your time and talent.  When you take a few minutes to make a pillowcase with us Saturday, you will receive a valuable coupon!  The coupon is valid for both Saturday and Sunday, and you will receive a one-time 20% discount on all fabric, books and patterns that are in-stock.  

There's good in doing good!
