Row by Row is On the Go in 2017!
Little Red Quilt House is getting ready to take off on June 21 for Row by Row Experience 2017.
All new for kids… Row by Row Junior!
"Row by Row On The Go! is 2017’s theme. We’re super excited about 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. They collect free row patterns designed just for them to make and they can learn to sew at home with family help and support from www.rowbyrowexperience.com.
Row by Row Junior follows the same rules and time schedule as adult Row by Row Experience, June 21 through Labor Day. Kids need to be in the shop to get the free pattern handout, but anyone can buy a kit. Grandmothers and traveling family can bring kits 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.
We’ll be awarding “I Made This!” ribbons to the first five kids who return with something made using a Row by Row Junior pattern. Any sewing effort will be celebrated, not just quilting. Find Row by Row Junior’s free online activities, kids’ journal pages, support for learning to sew at home, and more at www.rowbyrowexperience.com this summer.
“We want our kids to learn how to sew and carry on this craft that’s so dear to us,” explains Janet Lutz, Row by Row’s founder. “Travelling to new places, collecting something just for them, visiting Grandma, summer vacation...this is all part of the wonder and excitement of Row by Row Experience. Please join us.”
Make our world a better place with The 9th Row.
Many of the quilt shops are participating in The 9th Row project. In making a donation to The Make a Wish Foundation, the shops received an exclusive pattern. Consider the purchase of The 9th Row kit and a portion of your sale will help out the local children’s charity. Ask for it in your store!
The game is the same… and keeps getting better!
Beginning June 21, 2017, visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
Win a prize!
Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different 2017 participating RxR shops 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! Click here for more details. Note: you may use The 9th Row patterns, row from previous years and even Row by Row Junior patterns in your quilt, but none of these may be counted as any of the eight needed to win a prize.
