How about this… a shop hop type event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play? Simply 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 throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
Row by Row Experience™ 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 2016 over 3100 stores across the US, Canada and Europe welcomed travelers through their doors. The quilts created with those rows are stunning… and no two are alike!
In 2017, shops in New Zealand and Australia will become the first from the southern hemisphere to join Row by Row Experience, making it truly a worldwide event.
Although the quilt shops are organized by area, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from anywhere!
