State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop starting April 1st, all month long. For more than a decade the independently owned quilt shops of Maine have collaborated by inviting their customers to spend the month of April "hopping" from shop to shop. Customers print out passports and have them stamped at each of the shops they visit. At the end of the month, hoppers send in their completed passports and are entered for a number of wonderful prizes. Prizes are donated by the local shops and the companies and manufacturers who make the fabrics, books, patterns and notions that we all love.
Row by Row Experience - starting June 21st to September 6th, 2017
Row by Row On the Go! is this years theme. Beginning June 21, 2017, 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 to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
New in 2017: Row by Row Junior - just for kids! Introduce a child to the fun of sewing and quilting. Row by Row Junior patterns are designed and written just for them.
