For the third year in a row, we are proud to participate in ByAnnie.com's SewPINK Initiative Blog Hop, to help raise awareness worldwide about Breast Cancer during the month of October.
Did you know? 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. It is estimated that in 2022, approximately 30% of all new women cancer diagnoses will be breast cancer. That's why we are "sew" appreciative to be able to participate in this Blog Hop, to promote awareness and encourage self care and early detection. It also serves as a great support to all those impacted by breast cancer.
The #SewPink Initiative, through ByAnnie.com LLC, aims to spread valuable information to "encourage people to get their screenings, come together as a community, and donate to breast cancer research. We believe breast cancer awareness is important all year, and although we emphasize it in October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), our continuous goal is to provide resources and awareness year-round." You can visit their website for more information.
We decided this year to incorporate a brand new pattern of ours, called "Walk, Don't Run" from our Mini Pattern series. We thought that this pattern, paired with our Rustic Rose Cork Fabric & Rose Gold Hardware would bring encouragement and hopefulness to those who may be going through treatments now, or to breast cancer survivors.
This lanyard & key fob pattern allows for you to keep your important items close and within reach. Attach items like your keys, an ID holder, novelty key chains, or even clip a tassel cap to the key fob hardware!
Choose to make your Walk, Don't Run pattern out of our pictured Rustic Rose Cork Fabric, or the bright, new Fuchsia Faux Leather fabric to display your support for the fight against Breast Cancer! This year, Sallie Tomato is proud to donate 10% of our proceeds from this sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, or the BCRF.

If you're brand new to us here at Sallie Tomato, and have never worked with our high-quality Cork or Faux Leather fabrics before, don't fret! We have very helpful introduction Cork Fabric & Faux Leather Blogs that will help you sew your new favorite #SewPINK pattern!
