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.
