Happy October, Seams and Scissors family! Can we call each other a family yet? We’re going with yes.
As some of you know and others are about to find out, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We started prepping for this earlier in September by giving away a Breast Cancer Research Pink Oliso SmartIron (keep your eyes peeled on Seams and Scissors to find out if you can win another one of these… preferably on Monday…). To continue our support for raising awareness we’re joining in on the AllFreeSewing, FaveQuilts, and Fairfield Hands-on-Heart Breast Cancer Pillow Drive. We need your help! Let us tell you how you can participate.
Some questions you might have…
What is it?
The Hands-on-Heart Breast Cancer Pillow Drive is a month-long charity drive that collects pillows specially designed for post-op breast cancer patients during recovery.
Who is running this thing?
What do you do?
You make the pillows! Then, you send them to us!
When you say, “send them to us”, where exactly is that?
Well, OK, we’ll divulge our super-secret hideout but just because it’s for a charitable cause. Please send any pillow submissions to:
Prime Publishing, LLC
Attn: Hands-On-Heart Pillow Drive
3400 Dundee Road
Northbrook, IL 60062
Where do I get the pattern?
Great question; right here! It’s free. Just download the PDF & zoom to 200% from our site.
Yes, in fact! Thanks to the generous support of Fairfield we are awarding a weekly prize of 5 pounds of Poly-Fil®, Fairfield’s 100% premium polyester fiberfill to one lucky winner. This is great for stuffing pillows with! Every time you send in a pillow you are immediately entered into this drawing!
Plus, Fairfield is also offering a grand prize worth $250 of assorted Fairfield and Foamology products! How do you enter? Same way! Sending in a pillow will automatically enter you into this giveaway.
If you’re after something more “official” looking please reference AllFreeSewing to see even more details on this drive. We’d love for you to participate!
We’re already getting a head start,
How many pillows do you think we’ll get?
