Join us for the Row by Row Experience




It’s a BIG, easy shop hop!  No fees and no passports!
Simply visit any participating quilt shop across the country during the
summer and ask for the pattern for a row in the Sew a Season quilt. Each
shop is choosing a season to represent in and offering the pattern at no
charge to customers who visit their store between July 1 and September
2, 2014.  It’s a hop specifically for travelers so we’re not allowed to
mail patterns or kits, per the rules of the hop.

All shops are open different hours:
Be sure to check the shops' websites or call ahead when planning your
route to verify the summer hours.

See the rows on  facebook.com/NERowbyRowExperience
Or find more info at rowbyrowexperience.com

Featured Teacher: We are thrilled to welcome Cozad native, Peg Spradlin as our featured teacher for the weekend. Peg has been quilting out of her home in rural Cozad, Nebraska on her domestic Bernina sewing machine for over 20 years. Sheʼs a home sewer and pattern tester for Quiltmaker, Quilterʼs Newsletter, Connecting Threads and Marcus Fabrics. She specializes in precision piecing but her true love is quilting the top with lots of trapunto and dense background stitching. Peg teaches these techniques in classes all over the country. Peg has had quilts and articles published in Quiltmaker, Quilt It, Quilterʼs Newsletter, and Machine Quilting Unlimited, and is a regular contributor to Quiltmakerʼs 100 Blocks and Quilts from Quiltmakerʼs 100 Blocks.
