2016 Row by Row Experience
theme...
"Home Sweet Home"!

Row by Row Experience…if you haven't heard of it yet...it's like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the hundreds of 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 throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
Includes All 50 States and Canada, too!

Prizes and collectibles!
Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2016 rows from 8 different 2016 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into any participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). If you used that shop’s row in your quilt, you win a bonus prize!
Click here for more details.

Exclusive Fabric Plates™ by Zebra Patterns will be available in many Row by Row quilt shops. Each one is unique! Collect a bunch to create fun projects, sewing studio wall art or even a fun backing for your quilt.

Shops will be offering different items...be watching for pins, t-shirts, caps and even more Row by Row licensed items featuring the Row by Row Home Sweet Home logo.

DATES TO REMEMBER:
Begins June 21 - Sept. 6 = Travel and collect free row patterns, purchase row fabric kit (if desired). You must visit the shop in person to receive your free pattern.

"Hibernation" period is Sept. 7 - Oct. 31. This allows time for travelers who have collected rows a chance to finish their quilts and submit them to a shop that has not received a winner. Patterns and kits are NOT available during hibernation.

June 21 - Oct. 31 = Be the first to submit completed quilt to any participating shop for a prize. Completed = at least 8 rows from 8 participating shops and it must be quilted, bound and labeled.
