Row by Row Experience 2017

Quilt Essentials has joined the Row by Row Experience again this year. Row by Row is a new experience for quilters — A free shop hop without borders.  This year’s theme is Home Sweet Home.  Collect a free ‘row’ pattern or purchase a kit ($15.99) by visiting participating shops June 21-Sept. 5, 2017.

PLAY! June 21 through Sept. 5, 2017

The rules of the game are simple!

ONE copy of the pattern will be provided for free to ANYONE who enters a participating store and requests it.   NO patterns will be mailed or emailed.

ALL kits include a pattern. Patterns and kits will not not be distributed online, by mail, or by any means outside the store during this time period. If a shop runs out of kits, they may not mail one to you. Multiple kits may be purchased.

2 ROWS – Some shops may create 2 rows – however, you may only receive ONE pattern for free. The second row pattern can only be purchased as part of a kit.

WINNERS! June 21 through October 31, 2017

A bundle of 25 fat quarters will be awarded to the first customer who brings in a completed (quilted, bound, labeled) row quilt using patterns from at least 8 different 2016 participating shops.

A bonus prize will be awarded if the finished quilt includes your row.   A completed quilt can only be a winner in ONE shop.

A winner’s certificate will be awarded. A picture of your quilt will be taken to be displayed on the Wyoming Row by Row Facebook page. Smile pretty!
