Join us for for the Charity Sew-In as we stitch up pillowcases for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge event, a nationwide challenge with a goal of creating and donating one million pillowcases to local charities. Our goal is to make pillowcases and donate them to the kids at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and to the adult and hospice patients throughout the MultiCare organization. We are inviting quilters, crafters and sewers to make a case for a good cause. APWQ will collect the pillowcases, donate them to MultiCare and update the pillowcase counter at AllPeopleQuilt.com. The counter will track nationwide progress toward the goal of one million pillowcases. To date, more than 460,000 pillowcases have been recorded. If you are not able to attend the Sew-In, please consider making a pillowcase or two and bringing them with you to the show. You can deliver them to the INFO Desk, Level 3 at the GTCTC.
