Thank you so much for a chance to win!!!

  84. Maliah says:

    I would share with my local quilt group. We have donated hundreds of chemo pillows, quilts and pillowcases.
    This would go a long way.

  85. I would make many many Teddy Bears to give to my County’s Child Advocacy Center. When they interview a child there, they let them choose a stuffed animal and my Teddy Bears filled with Fairfield Poly Fil have been picked by children more than the other stuffed animals they have received in donations. Fairfield Poly Fil is soft , squeezable and bounces right back into shape. That is why I made them that way so that if a child is in a situation where they cannot get a hug from someone at least the Poly Fil bear will be able to be hugged without expecting something in exchange for that hug. It should not hurt to be a child.

  86. Paul Kulongowski says:

    I use Polyfill all the time. I also enter contest like this all the time. This has to be the most difficult stupidest contest I have ever tried to enter. You would think you would want to make this easy.

  91. marian green says:

    I love using it in my crafts, right now for stuffing fabric Christmas trees

  92. Ann E Cooper says:


  93. Julia Jackson says:

    I would use it to stuff prayer pillows. And comfort pillows. And some Christmas pillows. I give away the prayer pillows. I also give away the comfort pillows to those who are going thru a hard time. It reminds them that they are not alone.

  94. Beth Wise says:

    I’m part of a group of volunteers who knit/crochet breast prosthetics associated with KnittedKnockers/org. We go through large quantities of poly-fil and love the Fairfield brand. You can be sure our winnings would be put to good use.

    I am obsessed with owls. I am making them as pin cushions, doorstops and cuddly little plushies. I use owl fabric to make book and phone pillows. I’d be in Poly fil heaven if I’d win this. Thanks for the chance.

  111. Kathryn Maguire says:

    Pillows of course, kitty beds, dolls, teddy bears and of course rabbits, balls for babies, pin cushions to make them fluffy, pumpkins, Christmas trees and Easter eggs. So much more but I cannot think right now.

  112. SUZANNE says:

    I have used Poly Fil for ages. Can’t tell you how many dolls and stuffed animals I have made for my children, grandchildren and now my GREAT grandchildren!
    I will continue to use Poly Fil as my “stuffing of choice” with all the stuffed items I’m making for Christmas and Birthdays. At 82 and living on a limited income, any prize, especially this one would help me out beyond measure.

  113. SUZANNE says:

    I forgot to mention that I belong to the American Sewing Guild. We, as a group, make ‘care dolls’ that we donate to our police department and fire department for use with children in traumatic situations. We make stuffed animals and dolls for gift to our pediatric unit in our local hospital. These gifts are so very much appreciated. Receiving this Poly Fil as a means to stuff all or our various charity projects would be so very welcome and helpful.
