2017 Row by Row Experience Begins in June -- Wondering just what it is?

Row by Row Experience™ began in 2011 with 20 quilt shops across New York State. By 2016 over 3100 stores across the US, Canada and Europe welcomed travelers through their doors and in 2017 shops in New Zealand and Australia became the first from the southern hemisphere to join Row by Row Experience, making it truly a worldwide event. Although the quilt shops are organized by area, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from anywhere!

This year's theme is Row by Row On the Go! We have already ordered our License Plate for 2017 and are working on our pattern. Beginning June 21, 2017, visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different 2017 participating Row by Row shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Click here for more details.

Save the Date! 2017 Black Hills Area Shop Hop -- April 7-22 using Nine Mini's Pattern

Pick up a pattern for a block at each of the nine participating Black Hills Area Quilt Shops and you are on your way to a beautiful quilt. Or maybe you will decide to do a baby quilt, bed runner, table topper, pillow or table runner. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.

Reminder - 2017 Hoffman Challenge Fabric, Mastery, Has Arrived!
