Every pillowcase has a story. 
The stories continue to pour in — stories of hope and comfort for sick kids, homeless families,
and people who need to know someone cares. And each story is the result of someone like you,
who uses her love of quilting or sewing to send caring messages to people in need.

The American Patchwork & Quilting 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge continues – and they need
our help to reach their goal of providing 1,000,000 pillowcases to people who need to know
someone cares. The need is great. Our compassion as quilters is greater.

Pillowcases are a quick and easy project (and a great way to use up your stash). Even if you’ve
never sewn before, you can make a pillowcase. The challenge website has free patterns and a
how-to video to make it even easier!  You can also bring your pillowcase in to Kate's Quilting Block and we will be happy to help you.  For more information, to check the counter and download free patterns, visit the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge website: AllPeopleQuilt.com/millionpillowcases.

So far, more than half a million pillowcases have been recorded on their website.  If you would like to participate with Kate's Quilting Block in this challenge just bring in your finished pillowcases no appointment is necessary.  We will add them to our collection and will donate them to a local charity.  The charity we choose varies per year and the amount of pillowcases we receive.

Kate's Quilting Block has smaller classes.

Class size matters -

Numerous studies show class size matters at all age levels.  So no matter what your age the quality of education you receive, in whatever area you choose to learn about, is important.  Research shows that smaller class sizes are strongly linked with increased achievement in education.  Smaller class sizes have a positive impact on the clarity of presentation, the teacher's effectiveness, the attention paid to students, and the quality of the education.

Here at Kate's Quilting Block we are committed to life long learning.  Our goal is to help you be the best quilter you can be.  In keeping with that goal we have smaller classes enabling each student to participate in a more relaxed environment.  Students do not feel intimidated while gaining answers to their questions. This enables them to grow and achieve their goals.  

To register for classes or to receive more information regarding our classes please signup for our newsletter or contact us at info@katesquiltingblock.com or at 801-796-1533.
