Sewport Our Troops

 

Proceeds from the book Speak Up and Stay Alive  

help fund the Sewport Our Troops Pillowcase Project

 

Sewport Our Troops sends handmade pillowcases to our troops overseas.
 
Our goal is simple: 
To create a one of a kind comforting reminder from home, that says, 
"we care - and may every soldier feel our love and appreciation." 
 

 

All of our pillowcases are made from brand new 100% cotton fabrics and boast three layers of beautiful material. Each fabric is individually selected for softness, design and color combination aesthetic. Prior to sewing, we launder the fabrics with a non-bleach organic soap, and dry without the use of synthetic dryer sheets. The soon to be pillowcase fabrics are hand cut, one at a time, and stitched in a smoke free, pet free location. All inside seams are french seamed or pinked to prevent fraying. Upon completion, each pillowcase is lovingly steam pressed with a light lavender mist, until perfect.

We even add a small handwritten note with your name as the kind benefactor.

 
Your pillowcase gift is a handmade token of appreciation for the men and women who so willingly fight for our everyday freedoms.

You and your pillowcase contribution matter.

Please help us send a large HOLIDAY box to our troops overseas or to a homeless veteran's shelter


It is amazing what a simple gesture such as a pillowcase can do to lift the spirits of our brave military men and women.
