Take a day to make a difference! Teams of four will race the clock as we make pillowcases for a great cause. Put together your own team, or we’ll help you find partners. Every hour we’ll provide a “lap update” to see how many pillowcases each team has stitched up. Each member of the team with the most pillowcases at the end of the day will take home a $25 Quiltique Gift Card! Quiltique will provide the fabric for all the teams…you bring your favorite snacks, your sewing machine and supplies (rotary cutter, mat, thread, etc). We’ll spend the day making pillowcases for children who are hospitalized and undergoing cancer treatments. Many children undergoing cancer treatments can’t bring their favorite stuffed animals to the hospital because of their weakened immune systems. Ryan’s Case for Smiles (formerly ConKerr Cancer) provides these bed-bound kids with bright and cheery pillowcases to help liven up the room that they are stuck in for days, weeks, or longer. All pillowcases will count toward the APQ 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. The current count is approximately 788,001 pillowcases nationwide and they are not stopping until they reach 1 million! Give us a call to sign up for this fun, free event! A few Baby Lock sergers will be available to support your team and the cause. No matter which team pulls it off in the end, the real winners here will be the kids!
If you would like to be on a team with your friend please mention their name at check-out.
