Join Us for Our Summer-Licious Celebration July 15, Row by Row Experience and A Day With Moda's Corey Yoder!
The Summer season is always a busy one around here but I finally got some down time to sit here and show you everything you're possibly missing out on!
Much has been happening over the last few weeks between planning our Summer-Licious New Location Celebration schedule for July 15 and the Row by Row Experience! I'm still getting all the details finalized for our big party, but here's a video clip that features some of the highlights below! I can tell you that the party begins at 12pm! We will have special performances, prize drawings, demos, face painting, a kids craft table and more,...though I'm not sure how much more I can fit in! Go ahead and click on the video below!
BTW Cami is looking for some extra talent so if anyone would like to join in our dances we have three rehearsals scheduled here at the Shoppe in our classroom on Thursday, July 6 & 13 from 7pm-9pm and Sunday, July 9 from 2pm-4pm. The more we have join the merrier! The moves are simple and I promise no lifts or splits. LOL. We do prefer it if you could let us know ahead so we know to expect you (all ages 10 and above!) Looking forward to it!
From all of the pictures today, it's obvious that the Row by Row Experience has launched! If you've never heard of this annual event, the goal is to visit as many participating shops across the country, Canada and Europe to collect row patterns! This year the theme is "On the Go" and the "Mothership" decided to create our Quilts On The Go Row to coordinate with our Glamping Sweet Glamping theme from last year! Personally, I would get the kit because it is these fabrics that MAKE this row.
In order to receive the pattern, you must physically visit our Shoppe by September 5, 2017 during our store hours. As you travel and collect rows from participating shops don't forget to create a quilt using at least 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different 2017 participating Row by Row shops! If you're the first to bring your quilt into that participating shop, you will win a bundle of 25 Fat Quarters! Use our row in the quilt and you also receive a bonus prize! But here's the challenge...only one person gets to win this from our Shoppe!
If you can't make it to our Shoppe this Summer, you can pre-order our "Quilts On The Go" Row Kit by September 5, 2017 but it will not ship until November. You may also wish to add our Glamping Sweet Glamping Row Kit (pictured below) to your order. Keep in mind that if you add Glamping Sweet Glamping to your order for our current 2017 row, it will all be shipped together in November.
A word of warning...NO KITS AND OR PATTERNS MAY BE DISTRIBUTED IN ANY WAY FOR THE 2017 ROW between September 5 & November 1, 2017. This is what Row by Row considers the hibernation period in which you hunker down and get your quilts sewn!
You may have noticed the little border around our current row. We simply used our laser-cut 1-1/2" Square Stacker to add to our row. We have left it as an option for our 2017 row, but it is included with the Glamping Sweet Glamping Kit as it is needed to make the hanging quilts.
This year kids between the ages of 6 and 14 are also encouraged to participate with the all-new Row by Row Experience Junior! Have you heard of this? Do you know a young person who would love to be creative and sew? When traveling with an adult, children (6-14) can receive a free row pattern at our Shoppe! The pattern is designed specifically with kids in mind and each shop may have a different pattern! We have chosen "Rover" but since we have a little dachshund of our own we decided to rename our dog to "Gracie." Here she is!
If you don't have a little one to bring with you to the Shoppe, adults can purchase our Gracie kit in the Shoppe! Patterns may only be handed out to children.
With the Summer season in full swing, it's definitely Glamping season around here! The "Mothership" just brought in the sweet new Glamper-Licious Collection and we found this sweet Happy Camper Clock! The clock can be ordered by calling us at 503-694-8052 during Shoppe hours.
Another new arrival last week are these adorable Playtime 30's pre-cuts and fabric bolts. That bundle alone is dreamy! I can see seeew many quilts with it, can't you? You may even notice the yellows in the drawer! You can never have too many yellows and I sometimes feel that there are times of the year where yellow is hard to find! Summer is the perfect time to grab a stash of yellow!
Finally before I go and grab my lunch, I will leave you today with this little tidbit of info....
Did you know Moda's Corey Yoder is coming to the Shoppe for a one day workshop experience on Wednesday, July 26? Yep! 'Tis true! Corey will be teaching a Hand Quilting Workshop in the morning from 9am-12pm and then her Patchwork Magnets Workshop from 1pm-4pm! Sign up for one or sign up for both! You're going to have a great time with this amazing, talented designer! Check out some of her work below and until next time....
