One Million Pillowcase Challenge – Saturday, January 23rd, 2010


Okay, this past five days we have been in the midst of our fourth birthday celebration and we decided that the happiest things to do is to help others, so we set up our first sewing day for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge for Saturday, January 23rd at 11 am to 4 pm.  We thought it would be great if we completed 100 pillowcases but the volunteers were sewing wizards and completed 245.  Here are some shots of all the activities. 


Here is the store at the beginning of the day with a few pillowcases out for display.


The Classroom Annex was full with sewers and pillow cases were flying. 



There were pressers.




There were cutters and runners, oh my!



Here is the formal shot of most of the workers…what a great group.   We are so lucky to call them customers!


The shop really looked quite festive with all the pillow cases flapping in the breeze.  DSCN1622 

There were other activities here at the shop for our Birthday.  A few shared projects they had done here at the store during the year.  Here are some to share. We hope you enjoy them.
