Time flies until you get stuck at home due to the weather. These last weeks are one for the record books. As I look out the shop windows the winter wonderland is a picture postcard. Hubby dropped me off at the shop while he goes to get the speedometer fixed on the van. With the new year underway there are lots of changes in the shop. New fabric, new patterns, books and notions.  We are still working to provide an up to date website that is easier for you to find what you need.
Row by Row Experience is coming again this summer. We had lots of fun meeting new people as they traveled during the summer. This year all 50 states and many Provinces in Canada are participating. Starting June 21st  until September 8th..Check out the website for states you may travel thru for shops that are participating.. each shop has a free pattern you collect. The object is to collect at least 8 patterns/kits, make your quilt, quilt and bind it. The first person to a shop with a completed quilt collects 25 fat quarters!  Some shops will also have fabric license plates for sale. Last year one customer traveled west to east and back. By the time she came to our shop she had collected nearly 70 license plates! Go to rowbyrowexperience.com click on the start here button..plates from each state appear...click on your home state or one you will be traveling thru to see the list of shops participating and plan your travel. I hear 'Road Trip' echoing around the country!
Check out the 6 month block of the month quilts starting soon.  Aunt Grace Simpler Sampler, Garden Tea party...The shop will also be doing Circle of Life in Batiks and Quiltworx  paper piecing patterns.
