September is quite a busy month this year! It’s National Sewing Month, it’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and our friends at Ryan’s Case For Smiles (formerly Conkerr Cancer) are delivering their one millionth pillowcase this month! We thought we’d have a little contest that combines all three, and will bring some smiles to kids that need them.
As you may or may not know, Ryan’s Case for Smiles mission is to deliver fun and cheerful pillowcases to children who have been diagnosed with a life-changing illness or injury. Unfortunately, that means they need lots of fun and cheery pillowcases. We’d like to send them a big stack to help them with their mission, so we’re having a pillowcase contest!
To enter, all you have to do is make two pillowcases per the specifications on the Case for Smiles website: http://caseforsmiles.org/sewingpreparing-pillowcases/
Once they’re done, send them to us here at Arrow. When the contest is over, we’ll draw a random name from all of the entries and send them one of our adorable thread caddies!
We have listed the complete rules below, please read them over carefully, and if you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Case For Smiles website: http://caseforsmiles.org/sewingpreparing-pillowcases/ 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 in unscented detergent (and please don’t use dryer sheets), seal them in a ziploc bag, and mail them to us at:
PO Box 307
Delavan, WI 53115
Please make sure you include your name and return address! Pillowcases from pet-friendly homes are great, just make sure you bag them immediately after they are washed and dried.
3. Cases need to be received by Wednesday Sept. 30th, 2015 to be eligible.
4. We will select a one random winner from the eligible entries to receive a thread caddy.
Please feel free to share this contest with all of your sewing friends, we'd love to send a big stack!
