Welcome to the first annual We Sew Together sew along for charity! This four-week sew along allows lots of flexibility, but doesn't skimp on coupons and prizes. Over the next month we, as an online community, will sew any quilt pattern you choose for any charity from this list – The Ultimate Guide to Quilt Donations: A List of Where and How to Donate Quilts.
Is there a charity you love that didn't make it on the list? No problem! Add it to the comments in the post above and viola, it's on the list! Read below for details on how to participate, what the schedule looks like, and coupons just for you!
How to Participate in the We Sew Together 2020: Sew Along for Charity
- When is the sew along? We officially begin on Wednesday, August 26 and the final prize will be announced on Tuesday, September 22.
- How do I join the sew along? Similarly to other Suzy Quilts sew alongs, there's no official sign-up and technically the only thing you have to do to participate is make a quilt. Your level of involvement is completely up to you; however, there are some pretty sweet prizes to be won...
- What do I do after four weeks? After four weeks, if you remain on schedule, you will have a finished quilt top. At that time you can quilt and bind it yourself or send it to a longarm quilter for them to quilt it for you. Some of them even sew binding too! For a full list of longarm quilters, check out this post – The Ultimate Guide to Longarm Quilters in the USA and Canada.
- Where do I donate my quilt? Use this list, The Ultimate Guide to Quilt Donations: A List of Where and How to Donate Quilts, for tips on how and a list of where to donate your completely finished quilt. To my knowledge these organizations do not accept unfinished quilt tops.
- What are the perks?
- Prizes! Every week, by posting your progress to Instagram and using #WeSewTogether2020, you will be entered into that week's giveaway. Each week is sponsored by an amazing company, hand picked by me, to award one lucky person a free prize. You must have a public Instagram account to participate.
- Support. If you're making a Suzy Quilts pattern, use the Suzy Quilts Patterns Facebook group for any and all questions you may have. Follow the #WeSewTogether2020 tag on Instagram to feel apart and inspired by this loving community!
- Can I miss a week and still participate? Yes! Every week we start fresh with prizes, so even if you miss a couple weeks, you're still very much in the game. Prize details and restrictions will be published weekly on the Suzy Quilts Instagram account.
