You can "like" your area's page and any you plan to visit, but you don't have to be a member of Facebook to see the photos. 

The Facebook page links are on the website.

Click the state you are traveling in to see the listing of shops. A Google map and a downloadable list will be available before summer. 

One prize per quilter. You can make several quilts and show them off in several shops, but you may only claim one prize. Your quilt will be photographed for Facebook and everyone will see it, so play fair!

You decide. Stack your rows, arrange around a center medallion, make them horizontal, vertical, upside down, on the front, on the back, whatever! 

You are the designer. Be creative and have fun, but be sure to use 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different 2017 Row by Row shops.

Quilted, bound, labeled. 

With the Row by Row Experience you win a prize for sewing! 

Complete a quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different 2017 participating shops. 

Be the first to bring it into a shop and you win a stash of 25 fat quarters. (That's 6-1/4 yards of fabric!) Win a bonus prize for using that store's row in your quilt.

But there are no fees and no cards to stamp.So, is this a shop hop?

The patterns are copyright property of the designers.

The shops are offering the pattern only to customers who walk in the door. Please don't ask them to email or mail their row patterns.

The shops are all over the U. S. and into Canada. How can I get the row patterns from quilt shops that are far away from me?It's easy! 

Simply visit any participating 2017 Row by Row quilt shop during the summer and ask for their free pattern for a row in a quilt. 

The 2017 theme is Row by Row On the Go, and each shop is working with the theme in their row. 

The shops are happy to give you the pattern at no cost, limit one per person, walk-in customers only.
