We have joined the 2014 "Row by Row Experience!"
This should be a really fun event, and a great excuse for all of us to visit different quilt shops over the summer. There are 1250 shops participating throughout the US and Canada. You can go to the Row By Row Experience Homepage to see a list of all of the states & chops that are participating.
There is no charge to participate, but you must physically go into each shop to collect their unique row pattern. The patterns are free, and some shops also have kits available for purchase to make their row. Once you've done some visiting, create a quilt using at least 8 different rows 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! Combine your rows in any way you wish to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer.
Exclusive Fabric Plates by Zebra Patterns will be available in shops around the country. Collect a bunch to create fun projects, sewing studio wall art or even a fun backing for your quilt.
Here's what our fabric plate looks like:
Each area also has their own Facebook page.
The Oregon FB page can be found here.
We look forward to seeing everyone's rows as they complete them--please post your row (or finished quilt) on our wall, and on the Oregon FB wall as well.
Here's what our row looks like:
(kits will be available for purchase, while they last)
Just a reminder--
The rules do not allow us to mail out our row pattern, or to send it to you by email--
You have to come in to the shop in person to collect it.
Have a great summer, everyone--and happy hopping!
