Row by Row Experience


Do you know about the Row by Row Experience? 
It's so much fun! 
We've been participating for a couple of years now & we can 
hardly wait.
It all starts on June 21 (you know - the first day of summer.)
Each participating shop has designed a row depicting 
this year's theme: 
Home Sweet Home.
You visit shops & collect free quilt patterns for rows 9" X 36." 
Create a quilt with 8 different rows, completely quilted & bound, 
& you could win a stack of fat quarters!
The first person to come to a participating shop with 
their complete quilt wins!
Here's our Mermaid row:
 Calico Mermaid sewing at home - her castle - her happy place!

There are more than 2500 participating quilt shops in the US & Canada. Each has designed a row pattern for you to pick up free, & in addition many have prepared kits for their row.
Our kit has all the applique pieces laser cut & pre fused. 
I even found you some buttons for the mermaid's coconut bra.
Ready to go! 
You're welcome!
You just need to add your favorite floss for the 
clothesline & bra top. Or you could use decorative stitches on your machine. Whatever makes you happy.
You can collect rows (and kits) through September 6.  

In addition, many shops have also created fabric license plates to help commemorate your travels. Ours will be for sale soon.

 Between September 6 & November 1 no kits or patterns 
may be sold or given away.
After that, if we have kits & patterns left, they will be available 
for sale.
 Remember - you must actually come into shops to buy a kit or receive a free pattern between June 21 & September 6. 
Although we can mail you a fabric license plate. Just give us a call.
