-Exclusive MPBP quilting party planned to launch the #SewSocial Project-
MONTREAL, July 30, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Renowned fabric manufacturer CAMELOT FABRICS has partnered with The MPBP to launch the #SewSocial project, a charitable cause that will provide lap quilts to Quilts for Kids, an organization dedicated to providing comfort to children of abuse
and those with life-threatening illnesses.
"We wanted to work together with The MPBP organization to create a
project that has purpose," said Steve Haupt, President of CAMELOT
FABRICS. "We're dedicated to bringing diverse communities together to
design quilts that are 'sewn with meaningful messages,' and we hope
they will bring some form of comfort to these kids. We love that The
MPBP is taking on such a synergistic role in this project."
On August 4, 2013, CAMELOT FABRICS, along with The MPBP and Quilty magazine creator Mary Fons, will host an exclusive quilting party in
Orlando, Florida, to initiate the #SewSocial project. Artwork, family
photos, and unique messages will be transferred onto fabric that will
serve as centerpieces for the lap quilts. CAMELOT FABRICS has also
launched a microsite for those wishing to collaborate on 'virtual
quilts', which will then be converted into actual lap quilts and
included in the donation.
"We are truly excited about the newly formed relationship with Camelot
Fabrics and the Mothers of Professional Basketball Players, Inc.
Together we can show our love on a global scale with the various
messages that will be sewn on the designed quilts made exclusively for
the Quilts for Kids Organization. As a strong group of women we have
an obligation to our communities and we strive to make true investments
into the lives of our children through our charity works and
fundraising efforts," said Lucille O'Neal, President of The MPBP and
NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal's mom.
In addition to its relationship with the NBA, CAMELOT FABRICS oversees an enviable list of pop culture licenses,
such as Warner Brothers and Marvel Comic Superheroes, as well as Star
Trek and Star Wars, and legendary cartoon characters The Simpsons,
Archie and Betty Boop.
