And then it was June….  It’s sure been a busy spring. We’ve already been planning for Christmas if you can believe it and very excited about the fabrics that have started to arrive.

This month the Row by Row starts! June 21-September 6th. rowbyrow16The theme for this year is Home Sweet Home.  What’s Row by Row? It’s like a shop hop, but it’s not… no fees, no cards to stamp, and you have all summer to collect rows from stores! Simply visit our shop and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine our row with other shops in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2016 rows from 8 different 2016 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it to our shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!).
