Calling all quilters, sewers and crafters! American Patchwork & Quilting is challenging you to join their 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 to enter how many pillowcases you made. Help reach the goal of ONE MILLION Pillowcases. Patterns are available on the website – AllPeopleQuilt
However, if there is not a participating shop in your area, you are encouraged to make a difference by creating pillowcases and donating them locally – a Local Nursing Home or Alzheimer’s Unit, Local Hospital/Cancer Unit, Ronald McDonald House (call in advance to make sure your donation fits their needs). See list of suggested places to donate your finished pillowcases.
Watch for pictures of my pillowcases.
