Together we can make a difference

For several years now, we have been a part of the American Patchwork & Quilting "One Million Pillowcases" challenge.  Customers make beautiful pillowcases in fun fabrics, drop them off here at Little Quilts, and we donate them to a local charity and log them in with American Patchwork and Quilting.  One of our customers brings several every month when she's here for  our Second Saturday Sampler  event.  Today, another customer, Kathy, donated TWENTY  pillowcases!

All of our pillowcases are donated to ConKerr Cancer and distributed to children in Atlanta with cancer or other serious illness.  As you can see, it's a case for smiles all around - a big smile from Kathy that comes from a generous donation, a big smile from all of us here at Little Quilts that we can be a part of such a great charity, and especially big smiles from all the children who receive the gift of a pillowcase.

So far, with your help, we're proud to report we've donated over 575 pillowcases to the challenge .  A big THANK YOU to all who have donated pillowcases - nobody has better customers than we do here at Little Quilts!
