How is Your Row by Row Experience?
We've had a lot of Rowers visit us since the official start of the Rowing season. Some from as far north as Canada and as far west as Montana!
Our 2016 Row has been very well received-we've seen it in pictures of two finished quilts so far, one in Georgia and one in North Carolina. But we still haven't had a winner at our shop, so get busy you Rowers out there-we have a beautiful bundle of fat quarters with your name on it! And if you're the first one to show us our Row in your finished Row by Row 2016 quilt we have a prize just for you!
