Monster of a Challenge

Happy New Year! We thought we would start the year off just right with a Monster of a Challenge. American Patchwork and Quilting is sponsoring the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge and we are participating. To inspire you, Leslie has created some FUN front window displays! These monsters are having a great time, pillowsack races, jumping on the bed, and even a pillow fight..


Will you join us in the cause? We have made up lots of pillowcase kits or you can use your own fabrics. The first organization that we have chosen to support is The George Mark Children's House in San Leandro, CA. They will accept the first one hundred pillowcases that we collect. To find out more information about their organization, please visit their website.

We will begin collecting standard size pillowcase immediately and then will deliver them once we have received 100 cases. Your fabrics should be pre-washed and good quilt store quality fabric. Remember that these cases will be loved and washed quite a bit. The pillowcases should appeal to little kids through early adult (20's). We have pillowcase patterns available at the store.

In Stitches,

Leslie and Melissa
