Row by Row Experience 2017


Row Banner

Today is the first fill day of summer. It also marks the first day of the 2017 Row by Row Experience. This year’s theme is “Row by Row On the Go”. This is our third year participating in the program and we are excited as as it grows larger every year. What is the Row by Row Experience and how do you participate?  Follow the link for a full list of FAQ’s HERE

A few frequently asked questions below;

I’m a quilter, how can I participate in Row by Row Experience?
It’s easy! Simply visit any participating 2017 Row by Row quilt shop during the summer and ask for their free pattern for a row in a quilt. The 2017 theme is Row by Row On the Go, and each shop is working with the theme in their row. The shops are happy to give you the pattern at no cost, limit one per person, walk-in customers only.

The shops are all over the U. S. and into Canada. How can I get the row patterns from quilt shops that are far away from me?
You can’t. The shops are offering the pattern only to customers who walk in the door. Please don’t ask them to email or mail their row patterns.

So, is this a shop hop?
Kinda. But there are no fees and no cards to stamp.

Are there prizes? Can I win something?
Yes! With the Row by Row Experience you win a prize for sewing! Complete a quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different 2017 participating shops. Be the first to bring it into a shop and you win a stash of 25 fat quarters. (That’s 6-1/4 yards of fabric!) Win a bonus prize for using that store’s row in your quilt.

Sew and Tell….Bernadette


Bernadette and her Snow Days Quilt

Bernadette, one of our long time, local customers brought in her Snow Days quilt. This Crabapple Hill Studio pattern shows it made up in shades of black, grey and cream on the pattern front so it was pretty neat to see it made up in a palette of the rich reds and tea stained colours that Bernadette selected.

Below are a couple of close up of her quilt top before she had it quilted by Darlene Epp. Bernadette’s hand embroidery is perfect.
