Row by Row and All Iowa Shop Hop Updates
Merry's Stitchins, 1923 Baker Road, Jesup, IA 50648 319-827-6703 www.merrysstichins.com
We are heading into the last few days of the All Iowa Shop Hop! The last day for this year's hop is on Tuesday, June 30. Just a reminder to turn in your passports ASAP in order to qualify for the prize drawing. How do you qualify? Just visit 5 shops! Or an entire region...or visit all the participating shops in the state! Prize details can be found on the AISH website: www.alliowashophop.com We are down to our last few yards of the 2015 AISH fabric, so if you are still wanting some, stop in or call soon!
We are really excited about the Row by Row Experience! Merry and Julie (of Patch Abilities fame) designed our row together. We have complimentary patterns for each customer who stops in the shop through September 8th. There are fabric kits for our row available as well. Row by Row rules state we cannot ship customers patterns or kits until November 1...so if you want to be on a waiting list, you can call! Otherwise, we hope to see you sometime this summer! The shop is full of lots of new fabrics, patterns and SAMPLES! You must come see to appreciate this place.
We also came up with a fun "Road Trip Project Bag" to showcase your license plate collection. The top window (where our license is pictured) is actually a vinyl window pocket where you can change out the plates as you wish. What fun to choose a cute quilty saying for your road trip project! Patterns and kits are available on the website or in the shop.
Below is a little more information on the nationwide Row by Row program:
What is the Row by Row Experience?
How about this… it's like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
Prizes, collectibles and more fun!
Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2015 rows from 8 different 2015 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize!
Exclusive Fabric Plates™ by Zebra Patterns will be available in shops around the country. Each one is unique! Collect a bunch to create fun projects, sewing studio wall art or even a fun backing for your quilt.
Each area has their own Facebook page. Like the page from the areas you visit to see pics of the rows, shop displays, winning quilts and fabric plate projects.
2015 is the year of water – The theme is Row by Row, H2O. We celebrate our rivers, streams and lakes and all they entail. You will see that theme reflected in the rows.
