Shabby Fabrics Wears Pink!

According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer. As the vast majority of our customers are women, we know that many of you have fought, or are currently fighting breast cancer.

To show our support, the ladies of Shabby Fabrics all wore pink—
we’re rooting for you!!

We wanted to do more than just wear pink and take a picture though. We are proud to offer two of Northcott's Quest For A CureTM collections: Sweet Jane and Stonehenge Pink Ribbon. Northcott donates a portion of the purchase price for every yard they sell of these collections to breast cancer research both in the United States and in Canada.

Stonehenge Pink Ribbon

For more information about the fight against breast cancer and other ways you can get involved, visit the websites listed below:


And finally, we asked the staff to write the name of someone they know who battled breast cancer...


Remember, you are not in this fight alone! Visit Susan G. Komen for information about support groups and find one that is right for you.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with breast cancer, would you help us fill in our "Shabby Fabrics Wears Pink!" emblem? Just have someone take your picture like the ones above and send it to socialmedia@shabbyfabrics.com. Jennifer is working on a very special quilt design to support breast cancer research. When the pattern is released, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to help find a cure! The "Shabby Fabrics Wears Pink!" emblem will be included on the pattern as a way to honor the survivors and those who have gone on ahead.

Have you made a quilt for someone with breast cancer? Comment and let us know.

Until next time,
Jessie

  2. I was at a quilting weekend and for some reason.....I don't even know why, I found a pattern using layer cakes. I had not seen layer cakes before so by mistake I bought enough for three quilts. The pattern went very fast so I decided to make all three. Very soon after that my best friends daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer so I sent one of the quilts to her and told her to know that when she went for chemo she should use the quilt and think I had my arms around her. Soon after that one of the girls in my office was also diagnosed and when I picked up the second quilt from the quilter, she happened to be in the office. I walked out to my car and picked up the quilt and walked in and gave it to her. The third quilt lays on my bed today. My friends daughter is doing well but it has been a long road for her. We lost my friend at the office last year and I kept the third quilt for myself as a few months later I under went a double mastectomy. I did not realize when I made the quilts that any of us would have both the quilts and breast cancer in common.
