The 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge

Sew for a cause in honor of National Sewing Month!

The 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge

Come join us during National Sewing Month this September as we sew our way to 1 million pillowcases! 

In partnership with The Quilter's Trunk, an inspired Chicago sewing boutique, is participating in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. The goal is to provide some comfort and connection to those in need by making and donating pillowcases to local charities.

AllFreeSewing has teamed up with The Quilter's Trunk to support the local Chicago charity, A New Direction, that helps women and children who have experienced domestic violence.

We had an in-house sewing event to sew pillowcases, too. All materials, sewing machines, and chocolate were provided free of charge, and helpful Quilter's Trunk staff were on hand to guide volunteers toward the perfect pillowcase.

If you're not local to Chicago, you can still join in this charitable endeavor! Sew a pillowcase or two (or ten!) in celebration of National Sewing Month or any time of year, and then mail your contributions to The Quilter's Trunk or any participating local shop near you.

Oh no... the video isn't working anymore. I wanted to use this for a sewing class to make them for charity and this is my favorite video! Is there anywhere I can find it?
