It's Time to Make Some Smiles And Win!

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 pillowcases per Conkerr Cancer's specifications, and send them to us here at Arrow.  We'll pick one winner to receive our new Thread Caddy!

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 make lots of smiles for some sick kids!

The Rules (please read carefully):
1.  Make two pillowcases 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 (you may think that rose print fabric is the bomb, but trust us, the kids won't)!

2.  Wash your cases, seal them in a ziploc bag, and mail them to us at:
Arrow Cabinets
PO Box 410
Elkhorn, WI 53121
    Please make sure you include your name and return address!
3.  Cases need to be received by Friday, Sept. 6th to be eligible.
4.  We will select a random winner from the eligible entries to receive a new Thread Caddy!
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!  
If you'd like more information on ConKerr Cancer, please visit their website at


  1. How do we send you the picture?

  2. I'm in a pet friendly home. Will they accept pillowcases from me?

  3. easy peasy, now I need to get to it this weekend

  4. Big Martha, wash and dry afer you make them and put them in a zip lock after that. I wouldn't think they would be affected by your pets if you do this immediately after it is dried (be sure they are cool enough to seal and not melt the bag!)

  5. I'm thinking I need to iron them again after they come out of the dryer?
