The Pillowcase Project

Make a Pillowcase, Make a Difference.

American Patchwork and Quilting has started a 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge for 2010.  It is essentially a call to make a pillowcase and donate it to the charity of your choice.  One of the members of IC Quilters heard about the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge and wanted Ithaca College to be involved.

On September 29, 2010 approximately 20 IC students and staff members gathered to sew red, white, and blue pillowcases.  The pillowcases will be on display for the Veterans Day Celebration which will take place on November 11, 2010 in Ford Hall.  The pillowcases will then be shipped to soldiers overseas.  IC Quilters hope that this small act of kindness will encourage a soldier who is serving their country far from home.
