Our store has been a participating shop in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge for several years now, having donated over 2100 pillowcases for charity, with the help of our staff and terrific customers. During the month of March we will be competing with other shops and groups from across America in the Ultimate Pillowcase Challenge.  We are putting out a call to all our great customers to join-in as a member of M&R Sewing's Team PillowTalk.  Each week the store team will be earning points for completing a weekly challenge and creating lots and lots of pillowcases for donation to St. Mary's Pediatrics ward (our selected charity). At the end of March the team that has earned the most points and created the most pillowcases will be crowned the winner of March Pillowcase Madness, by American Patchwork & Quilting and will receive a visit from an editor for a talk and trunk show.  To bring a little healthy competition to our PillowTalk Team Members, registered members will accumulate points for attending in-store events, donating completed pillowcases or 100% cotton fabric, shopping at M&R and more.  The top 4 point leaders will receive M&R gift cards, with the top point leader earning a $500 M&R Gift Card. Sign up early and start earning points March 1.  We will be hosting in-store pillowcase making events each Saturday in March and will also have 2 drop-in sewing dates Thursday March 10 & 21.  For complete details on how to become an M&R Sewing Team PillowTalk Member, including how to earn in-store points CLICK HERE. #pillowcasemadness
