"Show The Love" Pillowcase Drive

Guess what?  Valentine's Day will be here quick as a wink, and we know of some kids that could really use a little Valentine cheer!  Once again we're hosting a pillowcase drive for the Madison, WI chapter of Conkerr Cancer, the organization that delivers bright and cheerful pillowcases to pediatric cancer patients.  To enter, all you have to do is make two cases per Conkerr Cancer's specifications, one Valentine-themed and one kid-themed, and send them to us here at Arrow.  We'll pick one winner to receive our fun red Chair-y!

It's perfect for Valentine's Day!  We have listed the complete rules below, please read them over carefully, and if you have any questions, email us at  With your help, we know that we can create some Valentine smiles!

The Rules (please read carefully):

1.  Make one Valentine-themed pillowcase and one child-appropriate pillowcase following the guidelines posted here on the ConKerr Cancer website:  The Madison Chapter would love sports-related cases for the boys, especially Badgers or Packers ones!  Remember, these are for kids, so they should be bright and cheery!

2.  Wash your cases, seal them in a ziploc bag, and mail them to us at:

Arrow Cabinets
PO Box 410
Elkhorn, WI 53121
3.  Cases need to be received by Friday, Feb. 8th to be eligible.

4.  We will select a random winner from the eligible entries to receive a red Chair-y!

If you can swing it, we'd love to get some pictures of you with your finished pillowcases to post on our Facebook page ( this is not a requirement for entering).  Please feel free to share this contest with all of your sewing friends, we'd love to have to rent a truck to deliver these!

  1. My daughters and I had a great time making these pillowcase last year. I am sure we will be able to make a few more.

  2. OH my goodness that is the chair that I want so badly to go with my arrow sewing cabinet and my suzi side kick cabinet ... I am going to see if I can swing making a few pillow cases ... thanks so much!

  3. How fun! I just made a few pillowcases last week. I need to make a Valentine's themed one and get them sent off. Thanks!

  4. I just taught my 10 and 15 Year old Granddaughters to sew. I am also finishing up teaching an adult class to sew. I'll send this to the adults and also show my Granddaughters how to make pillow cases that we can send.

    BTW - love the chair!


  5. I would love that chair, so I better get sewing!

  6. I'm making pillow cases already! Not for the chair though....I won a Gidget II on Jan 2 and I still have not heard from you. I am wondering if the email got lost or what??? Just worried that I missed it is all.

  7. Will we see some of the pillow cases posted? I love making them. What a great idea to cheer people who aren't feeling well. I can't wait to make two.

  8. We LOVE making pillowcases especially for such a wonderful cause. My daughter is in the process of making 20 pillowcases as part of her service hours for National Junior Honor Society. So making a few more will just be that much nicer. Doing something for someone else is the best lesson i can ever teach her.

  9. Wonderful blοg! I found it while ѕeaгching on Үahoo Nеws.

    Do you haνe any suggestions on hοw to
