ConKerr Cancer Pillowcase Sew-in

Please join us in the Greenhouse to sew pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer, a national organization that brightens the days of children facing extended hospital stays by providing them with their own bright, handmade pillowcases!

We'll provide fabric + notions for folks to create fun pillowcases to donate to our local chapter of ConKerr Cancer. Any fabric or notion donations you have for this cause are welcome, too!

All ages and all skill levels are welcome to attend, so please do bring your children and your friends! There is plenty of cutting, ironing and pinning to be done in addition to simple sewing, so help in any way you like. This event is floating, so come when you can and stay as long as you like.

The Greenhouse has several sewing machines to share if you do not have your own--we'll just take turns between cutting and sewing. Please let us know if you'll need to borrow a machine.

If you'd like to bust your stash and make some pillowcases to donate ahead of time, check out these great sewing instructions provided by ConKerr Cancer. We'll provide these instructions at our sew-in, too! (Psst--anyone who attended February's Pillowcase Dress Sew-in will be a pro at this--it's the "sausage roll"/"hot dog" technique again!) You're welcome to drop your pillowcases at Spoonflower anytime before or during our event!

We look forward to seeing you here to sew for a great cause!

    Thank you so, so much for spending a lovely Saturday morning sewing with us for a great cause! We finished 93 pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer! Y'all are amazing, and I had so much fun! If you'd like to contribute more, you're welcome to drop donations at Spoonflower anytime. Our local chapter is donating about 150 pillowcases each month, so let's keep sewing for good and spreading the love! :) Enjoy the rest of this gorgeous weekend, and thank you, again!

    Thanks for organizing a great event where I can donate my time and lack of sewing experience to help others.
