Choose between a t-shirt commemorating the first woman to register in the Boston Marathon, or a quilt made from your old t-shirts
About This Deal
A good night's sleep is necessary if you want to be at your best and keep having those dreams in which you drive a monster truck over a coral reef. Dive into your subconscious with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $10 for one Boston Marathon specialty t-shirt ($25 value)
- $75 for an Upcycled t-shirt quilt ($130 value)
The Boston Marathon t-shirt refers to the "Boston Running Club" of 1967, a nod to the year runner Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to register in the race.
If you choose the Upcycled t-shirt quilt option, Project Repat will take your t-shirts and turn them into a quilt. Project Repat will send you a large envelope with full instructions on how to cut the t-shirts (click here to see a video display how to cut each shirt).

About Project Repat
In their first year, Project Repat repurposed about 250,000 T-shirts into memorable blanket keepsakes. That's 250,000 T-shirts that didn't end up in landfills. That's 20,000 hours of fair wage work in the United States. That's zero gallons of water wasted on blanket creation. That's 10,000 jobs in the blanket fort construction industry. Not to mention Project Repat makes warm, high-quality blankets, too.
Here's how it works. First, you'll decide if you want to design your own T-shirt pattern, or trust the all-American employees to design the blanket for you. Then, gather up the T-shirts, sweatshirts, and jerseys you'd like to use, and cut them apart to separate the fronts from the backs. About 12 shirts make a lap blanket, 30 make a full-size quilt, and 64 makes a king-size quilt. The fronts and backs should then be mailed to Project Repat, along with a photo of the desired pattern if applicable, and a few weeks later, a beautiful T-shirt quilt arrives in the mail.
