Row by Row Experience™ began in 2011 with 20 quilt shops across New York State. Today thousands of stores across the US, Canada and Europe welcome travelers through their doors. The quilts created with those rows are stunning… and no two are alike!

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 is your opportunity to do some serious quilting travel.  Pack up the car and gather some friends, check out the map of participating shops and determine your route.

Visit at least 8 stores and collect your free pattern from each (kits will be available at a cost).  Be the first person who brings in a finished quilt to one of the participating stores (quilted, bound, labeled), using at least 8 different rows, and you will receive 25 fat quarters free. If you use the row from that store in your quilt, you will be awarded a bonus prize.  

What are you waiting for....get out that map and get planning!!!  The fun begins on June 21st and ends on September 5th.  Your completed quilt can be submitted between June 21st and October 31st. 

You can check the Row by Row website for all the details and list of participating shops. What a wonderful way to make memories this summer with your quilting companions, not to mention travelling to some of your favourite shops and discovering some new ones!!

Summer 2017 will be alive with learning when kids hit the road to participate in Row by Row Experience’s brand new program, Row by Row Junior. It’s designed for kids ages 6 to 14. They travel along with an adult, collect free row patterns designed just for them to make, and learn to sew with family help.

Row by Row Junior follows the same time schedule, June 21 through Labor Day. Like adult Row by Row, children need to be present in the shop to get the free pattern handout, but anyone can buy a kit. Grandmothers can buy them as Christmas presents. Travelling family members can bring them home as gifts or souvenirs.

Row by Row Junior designed the five different row patterns so you can be sure they are kid-friendly. Make it an adventure traveling to collect all five and seeing how different shops make up their row. Our row is High Tops...these stylish kicks are perfect with the On The Go Row by Row Theme!

“I Made This!” ribbons will be awarded to the first five kids who return to a shop with something they’ve made using a Row by Row Junior pattern. We want to celebrate any sewing effort not just quilting.  Certificates will be awarded for all completed projects!

You can check the Row by Row website for all the details and list of participating shops.  What a wonderful way to make memories this summer with your child, grandchild, niece or nephew...travelling to some amazing towns and shops and sharing the art of quilting!
