Shop hops are fun. Period. But a nationwide (and parts of Canada) shop hop is just plain cool.
Thanks to Faith at Doodle Time Designs, First Stitches Quilt Shop and Sewing Store is a very happy participant in the 2015 Row by Row Experience.
We've already had one of our favorite customers at our door this morning, right as we opened, purchase the very first one (I won't mention any names, Jackie). Then Tom and Jan, from Arkansas came in and showed us their 2014 Row by Row quilt and purchased two 2015 First Stitches Row by Row Kits (Tom says he's doing his own!)
The Row by Row Experience lasts all summer long, and over 2500 quilt shops are participating in the United States and Canada.
The 2015 dates are:
Travel and collect rows: June 21 - Sept. 8
Bring in a complete quilt for a prize: June 21 - October 31.
We also have a very limited number of Exclusive Fabric Plates™ featuring our very own license plate. (Arkansas River Quilting)
Patterns are free at participating quilt shops and each store will have a kit available for purchase, also.
Just another great example of "quilters have no borders".
