One of our favorite quick projects and stash busters are pillow cases. This year, we have a list of different charities throughout the state where we are planning on donating completed pillowcases. Organizations include the Children’s Justice Center, Shriners Hospital for Children, and Camp Erin. Information on these organizations will be coming soon. (And if you know of a local non-profit that you think may benefit from a donation of pillow cases, please let us know!)
There are so many ways that you can help! We appreciate any time and effort that you are able to give to help us help others in our communities!
How to Help
**JOIN US FOR A PILLOWCASE MAKING SESSION**
Each of our stores has scheduled pillowcase making workshops throughout the month of June. It’s free to join us and you’ll learn how to make a pillowcase! All materials will be provided and all pillowcases made during the workshop will be donated! To sign up for any of these workshops, please call the respective store. We are unable to take registration requests through email or social media at this time.
Maui – June 22, June 29 – all starting at 10AM
Hilo – June 25 – starting at 10AM

All of our stores are currently accepting donations of completed handmade pillowcases. Please keep your pillowcases to standard size (20″x26″) and made from kid-friendly materials. We ask that you not use trim or anything that can get caught on things or pulled off by little ones. Metallic and glittery accents on fabric prints are fine as long as it does not flake off.
Throughout the month of June, for your first pillow case donation, you will receive a $5 Discount Fabric Warehouse gift certificate! (Limit one gift certificate per person.)
We can also accept donations of fabric earmarked for pillowcases. Please make sure that any fabric donations can make at least one standard size pillowcase. Just let the fabric clerk at your store know that you are donating fabric for pillowcases and we’ll take it from there!
Please spread the word! Share this page, or just let your friends know that we’re collecting pillowcases for donation! The more folks who know about it, the better! We love getting involved with the community!
Tutorials, Patterns, and More!
While most folks have a favorite pillowcase pattern that they might turn to or are adept at Googling or searching on YouTube for a pattern, we thought it might be nice for us to leave some of the tutorials and patterns that we like to share with you. Have a favorite that you wouldn’t mind sharing? Drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!
