National Sewing Month: Quilts for Kids

Quilt for a cause! To commemorate National Sewing Month, PFAFF® sewing dealers across the country are partnering with Quilts for Kids to host handmade patchwork quilt donations for children who have life-threatening illnesses or are victims of abuse. Participating PFAFF® dealers will have a drop-off box on-site to collect colorfully-designed, 100% cotton fabric and materials to make the custom lap quilts. Monetary donations to cover any shipping costs will also be accepted. All completed quilts will be delivered to children in hospitals both locally and across the country. Select dealers will also be hosting special events and quilt-ins of their own to gear up donations.

Click here to find a PFAFF dealer near you! Anyone is welcome to stop by and help support the cause by giving materials or making a quilt of their own. Please visit www.quiltsforkids.org for specific guidelines and pattern suggestions. Donations will be accepted September 1 – October 31, 2012.
