As we write this, winter is once again making it's snowy presence known. It's hard enough being trapped in the house during these cold winter months, but imagine how hard it would be if you were a sick kid stuck in a boring, dreary hospital room? Ryan’s Case For Smiles, (formerly Conkerr Cancer), works hard to bring those sick kids some cheer by delivering bright, cheery pillowcases to them while they are in treatment, but they need our help!
Their goal is to make sure every child in treatment receives a pillowcase, so as you can imagine they need a lot of them. 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: Pillowcase directions
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! If you send us four pillowcases, we'll put your name in twice!
(cube only - accessories not included)
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 March 16th 2016 to be eligible.
4. We will select one random winner from the eligible entries to receive a storage cube (accessories not included).
Please feel free to share this contest with all of your sewing friends, we'd love to send a big stack!
