One Million Pillowcase Challenge | Discount Fabric Warehouse

We’re Sewing Pillowcases for Charity!

Discount Fabric Warehouse is participating in the American Patchwork & Quilting One Million Pillowcase Challenge! Throughout the month of April, we’re collecting completed pillowcases and hosting sewing events where you can stop in and make a pillowcase!

•What is the One Million Pillowcase Challenge?•

American Patchwork & Quilting has challenged quliters, sewers, and crafters to help them reach their goal of donating one million pillowcases to local charities. While there is no set time frame to help them do so, we at Discount Fabric Warehouse have chosen April to focus on this amazing event.

•How Can I Participate?•

There are several ways that you can help us help others!

~ Donate completed pillowcases to your local Discount Fabric Warehouse store! We ask that pillowcases are kept about the standard size (22 inches by 32 inches) although we can take larger to fit king size pillows.

~ Donate fabric for others to make pillowcases! The minimum length of fabric we can accept is 1/4 of a yard. Anything smaller will be too small to use.

~ Join us at Discount Fabric Warehouse at one of our in-store events to help make pillowcases for donation! On Saturday, April 14, all of our Discount Fabric Warehouse stores will be hosting pillowcase making events! Times vary by store, but we will provide all materials – including a serger to use to help make putting together the pillowcases a breeze – as well as tutorials on how to make the pillowcases.
