Sew-A-Thon Marathon Starts Today!

American Patchwork & Quilting sponsors the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge for charity. This year, during National Sewing Month, they are having a 24 Hour Sew-A-Thon event starting today! How many can / will you make in 24 hours?

I read about how one group is getting together in person, and Girl Scouts are coming to work on the pillowcases! This activity counts toward their Bronze Award community service project. What a wonderful way to give back to the community.

All People Quilt has a list of ideas of where to donate pillowcases found here.

They also provide free patterns to get fancy when creating pillowcases!

I wrote a tutorial back in 2012 and shared step-by-step pictures how to create a “roll” pillowcase. It’s easy! I listed the fabric requirements there as well!

Anytime today… it’s never too late to start… you have 24 hours…. Ready… Set… Go!
