I know I’m supposed to be working on class samples but the weather here in Upstate NY has been beautiful. I have been visiting quilt shops in the area collecting Row by Row kits. Row by Row is a nationwide quilt shop hop. Each participating quilt shop designs a license plate and a 9″x36″ quilt row pattern/kit. It can be 4 blocks or one row. The first person that gets 6 rows completed into a quilt goes to a shop and claims their prize (one per shop). You can pick up the pattern for free or chose to buy the kit, The fabric license plate is sold separately.
Cottons Etc. in Wampsville, NY is a great shop with wonderful classes and good selection of Alexander Henry Fabrics.
Crazy Moose Quilt Shop in Inlet, NY has a great selection Adirondack fabrics. You can not believe how beautiful it is there.
Heartworks Quilt Shop in Fly Creek, NY is definitely worth the trip, I love this place. They have a wide variety of fabrics. There is a wonderful Cider Mill there. They are located close to Cooperstown, NY the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Sew Nice in Norwich, NY is a great quilt shop. They have a wide selection of fabric and great class room space. Not to mention that the owner Diane Marvin is a fellow Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design.
Sew Wilde in New Hartford, NY. I love this shop.
Tiger Lily Quilt Company is located in an old cotton mill in Utica, NY across the street from Utica Brewing Company. This is one of my favorite places to be and definitely want to be teaching there soon.
Hopefully I will get these rows finished soon and share them with you. You can follow “Row by Row” on Facebook.
I have been to 5 stores in Missouri and 3 in Kansas so far. We are in Kansas City for a wedding – which was today. We drove so I told Bruce that I would only go by car if we could stop for Row by Row. I have 2 more in Kansas and then we will be going through another part of MO, KY WV and VA.
It has been fun to see the different shops. Everyone is so nice. My goal was to be sure to get the RXR pattern for the St. Louis Arch and I did!
That’s great, it is so much fun collecting the row by rows!

Hi…I hope your move went smoothly….do you still do quilt labels if the words and fabric and postage are sent to you?
I can, but not until my house in Virginia sells. Most of my embroidery things are in storage in Virginia. I will let every know when I get totally moved in. Thanks
