Welcome to #SewPINK 2019

Welcome to the

#SewPINK 2019 Blog Hop,

THE INAUGURAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS INITIATIVE FOR BYANNIE.COM

~~~~~

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), and for 2019, ByAnnie.com is proud to announce that we are raising the banner of awareness worldwide with the #SewPINK initiative with over 20 celebrity bloggers.

I got involved because I too have family & friends that have been diagnosed with breast cancer,

some more than once.

The #SewPink Initiative was created by ByAnnie.com LLC to raise awareness for breast cancer during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. They have pledged to raise funds to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through sales and to promote action through giveaways.

Years ago I designed a quilt pattern, Quilt For Hope

for quilters to make a quick lap size quilt

to comfort friends and family that may be battling breast cancer.

It’s one of my signature Quilt-as-you-sew patterns so it’s quick & easy!

It could also be made in any color to associate it to another type of cancer.

Sewing it with a flannel or Snuggle fabric on the back makes it even more cuddly.

This month ByAnnie.com will donate 30% on all PINK products in their online store to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
