Over 200 Quilt Shops across the US and Canada participated in Pantie Raid 2016! The shops were overwhelmed by the generosity of quilters donating underwear, socks, PJs, and more for local women’s shelters.
Red Pine Quilt Shop, was excited to be a part of this year’s collection drive. “It was a great opportunity for us to give back to our community,” said owner Joy Fetting. “We, along with the other participating quilt shops, offered a gift to our customers who donated items as a thank you for their generosity. As primarily women-owned businesses with a high percentage of female customers, quilt shop owners are in a unique position to help. It was amazing to see the generosity of my customers and their friends, many of whom were not quilters. The outpouring of support for the crisis shelter in our community was heartwarming.”The quilt shops participating in the 2016 Pantie Raid collected over 100,000 items. Amazing! All of the donations went to women’s shelters within the community near the quilt shops. Pantie Raid 2017 is sure to be even bigger and better!
