#SewPINK Initiative Kick Off - 2022
Thank you for joining us for the fourth annual #SewPINK Intiative. This year we got the #SewPINK Initiative started a little early with a great program on Live with Annie on Sept. 28, 2022.
Live with Annie
We were joined by guests Jennifer and Carolyn Gibbons who were the inspiration behind our popular Bosom Buddy pattern.
We talked about their journey, breast cancer and other hereditary cancers, and ways that we, as quilters and sewists, can help those who are dealing with those diseases.

This simple project makes wearing a seat belt more comfortable.
The #SewPink Initiative was created by ByAnnie.com LLC to raise awareness for breast cancer throughout the year. Our efforts culminate in an annual blog hop during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month to promote self-care, awareness, early detection and support for those affected by breast cancer.
