Blankets For Good: Employee Sew-In at the Greenhouse!

AUG 5, 2015 updated Aug 3, 2021

With customers all over the globe, Spoonflower loves collaborating with our friends overseas but when we have the opportunity to help our North Carolina neighbors, we jump at the chance! This past week, Spoonflower employees came together for an employee sew-in to make blankets for our neighbors at the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service.

Blankets for good!

lots of cozy finished blankets

“The Inter-Faith Council for Social Service is a not-for-profit non-denominational social service organization with a small staff providing basic services to combat poverty, hunger and homelessness in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, North Carolina.”

happy Spoonflower sewists!

In just under 4 hours, a team of busy hands created 30 organic cotton knit and minky blankets to donate to IFC. The hardest part? Not getting too attached to cuteness of the blankets we were making! Want to put your fabric to good use? We encourage you to reach out to a local shelter in your area and see if blankets are on their wish list!
