Pillowcases For Those In Need

I love finding ways to sew for others. It helps those in need and helps me use my evergrowing stash of fabric. One Million Pillowcases is a cool challenge that is easy to do no matter what your skill level. I pulled this information from the American Quilters and Patchwork website:

Calling all quilters, sewers and crafters! American Patchwork & Quilting is challenging you to join our efforts to Make a Pillowcase, Make a Difference. Every pillowcase can make a difference in your community. A pillowcase can provide comfort for a cancer patient, hope for a foster child, encouragement for a battered woman, or beauty for a nursing home resident.

To participate, find a shop hosting One Million Pillowcase Challenge events in your area. Once your pillowcases are complete and donated locally, log on below to enter how many pillowcases you made. Help us reach our goal of ONE MILLION Pillowcases.

To find patterns and places to drop off your pillowcases go to http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/millionpillowcases/

I bet this project will be like eating cookies, after one you will want another.

Happy sewing!
