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.

Row by Row Junior follows the same rules and time schedule as adult Row by Row Experience, June 21 through Labor Day.  Kids need to be in the shop to get the free pattern handout, but anyone can buy a kit.  Grandmothers and travelling family can bring them home as gifts or souvenirs.

About the Row by Row Experience

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 2014 over 1250 quilt shops participated in 34 states and Ontario. Plans are underway for the biggest and best Row by Row Experience™ ever in 2015! All 50 states and several more Canadian provinces are planning fun for travelers throughout the summer. Although the quilt shops are organized by area, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from any anywhere!
