Get ready to hit the road, the New York State Row by Row Experience starts tomorrow!
We are so excited to be participating in this years Row by Row Shop Hop. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Row by Row here’s the skinny right from the Row by Row Facebook page:
It’s the easiest shop hop ever! Just visit any of the participating quilt shops throughout the summer. Each shop is giving away a pattern for one row in a row Quilt. Pick up as many as you can, then mix and match your rows to create a fun and unique quilt. No passports and no fees! It’s a freebie! Be the first person to bring a finished (quilted, bound, labeled) quilt using at least 8 different rows in to a participating quilt shop and receive a bundle of 25 beautiful fat quarters. Include their row in your quilt and receive a bonus prize! Limit one prize per quilter or quilt.
New York has over 90 participating shops and each one will be giving out a FREE pattern for a row! From July 1st through September 2nd 2014 you can stop into any of the shops and pick yours up. The theme this year is “Sew a Season” and Barb requested that we use birds in both locations Rows to unify our two stores.
“Summer Birds” our Row for the Williamsville Location
“Winter Birds” our Row for the East Aurora Location
We are SUPER excited to offer kits for sale of these Rows that include pre-cut applique pieces! That means if you pick up one of our kits you wont have to cut out and tiny bird legs or flower centers! All the pieces will be pre fused to Heat-N-Bond lite so all you’ll have to do it arrange them and fuse them down! I don’t know about you, but that makes me very happy! Along with being convenient this could also increase your chance of winning a prize. Since the 1st person to bring a finished quilt with at least 8 different rows (the rules state that a finished quilt is quilted, bound and labeled) into each shop wins a 25 Fat Quarter bundle- the quicker you get your row done the better your chances are!
The other fun part to this hop is that most locations will be selling Fabric Plates for you to collect. No gave involved with these…they’re just cute!
Our Fabric Plates
The plates will sell for $4.00 until Labor day and then $6 after that (if there are any left!).
The organizers of Row by Row do such a fantastic job at organizing this event, please check out the Row by Row website for a complete list of participating shops, and interactive map and so much more! www.rowbyrowexperience.com
We think this will be such a fun addition to the summer schedule and we can’t wait to meet all of the new quilters and sewers who will be visiting us in the next few months.
Tell me, are you planning on participating in this year’s Row by Row?
