Getting Ready for Row by Row 2016 – Home Sweet Home!


Who’s excited for Row by Row Experience this summer?! The theme is “Home Sweet Home”, and we’ve already noticed a growing buzz in stores and on social media. The dates for this year are June 21 – Sept. 6, 2016.

If you’re new to the event, read all about it here on Row by Row Studio (be sure to join their mailing list so you don’t miss any of the action!). This event has been sweeping the quilting world since 2011 and has grown bigger every year. In 2015, over 2700 shops participated across all 50 states and Canada!

For the third year in a row (no pun intended!), Debra Gabel has designed a collectible fabric line to celebrate the event. Home Sweet Home is hitting shops now, and you still have plenty of time to stitch up some cute travel accessories before Row by Row kicks off in June! The collection features an adorable map, quilters’ license plates (with phrases that were actually used by shops for their custom FabricPlates), a coloring book design, and more! Learn more about Debra’s creative process behind the fabric collection here.

This tote bag is perfect for collecting row patterns, kits, license plates, pins and more as you visit participating shops. Download the FREE PATTERN here! (Shop owners — we’ve also got a fun & functional free apron pattern that shows off your store’s row and license plate!)

We love hearing about Rowers coming together for the summer, and their enthusiasm is “sew” contagious! Just listen to these two anecdotes from Row by Row fans as they catch up with Janet Lutz, owner of Calico Gals and founder of the Row by Row Experience.

Have fun Rowing this summer!

    I am seeing shops in Michigan selling row X row fabric already. I thought this was part of the whole surprise and fun for both customers and shops alike that goes along with the first day of row X row on June 21st. Going to shops, getting patterns, purchasing plates, kits and fabric. It takes away part of the fun frenzy if shops can sell openly whenever. Did the rules change and I am not aware? Would love to know, please?
    Kind regards,
