It's a NEW kind of Shop Hop! The Row by Row Experience is a shop hop type event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating shops throughout the US, Canada and internationally June 1st, 2023 through August 31st, 2023, 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! Prizes, collectibles and more fun will be at each shop you visit!

Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows 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!  Prize deadlines to bring in your finished quilt are July 1st, 2023 through September 30, 2023.

Exclusive FabricPlates by Debra Gabel of Zebra Patterns will be available in shops around the country. Each one is unique! Collect a bunch to create fun projects, sewing studio wall art, or even a fun backing for your quilt.

Each area (or state) has their own Facebook page for the Row by Row Experience. "Like" the page from the areas you visit to see pictures of the rows, shop displays, winning quilts and FabricPlate projects. A little history: Row by Row began in 2011 with 20 quilt shops across New York State. In 2012 the event grew to include 62 participating shops. Pennsylvania came on board in 2013 for a total of 138 shops throughout the two states. In 2014 the event is moving across the country. Over 20 states are participating and planning fun for quilters nationwide. In 2015, all 50 states participated as well as several Canadian Provinces.

Although the quilt shops are organized by state, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from any area you visit. The theme this year is "Summertime". Each shop has designed a row that will reflect that theme. Some shops are also offering kits for their row, or you can choose fabrics from your stash!

Our row design, Sunning by the Bay! is applique and features an adorable sea lion sunning on the beach with the Golden Gate Bridge and a sailboat in the background.  When you visit Always Quilting in person, you will get your FREE Row pattern. SORRY WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO EMAIL OR SEND YOU THE PATTERN; YOU MUST APPEAR IN PERSON TO REQUEST YOUR FREE PATTERN. One FREE pattern per person. 

However, if you purchase the fabric kit for our row, it will include the FREE pattern, and we are allowed to send the kits out anytime.   The fabric kit includes all of the fabric you need to make your row.  Binding and Backing are not included.  We also have charms, and pins, and more; they are so cute! And of course we also have the FabricPlates with our special Always Quiltn' license plate!  Would be great for a small wall hanging or pillow, or add it to your quilt! 

Please join us for this fun event, get your kit and/or pattern today, and don't forget to show us your projects, and post your pictures to Facebook!
