On the Go with Row by Row

Row by Row is just around the corner and Checker sponsored their schoolhouse in St. Louis.  These new patterns by Patch Abilities are so darn cute, I couldn’t wait to show you!  What a great way to display the license plates…









These are both twelve inches wide so you have a choice of a wide variety of Ackfeld hangers.  This stacked suitcase version is 22 inches wide, but there are hangers for that size as well.

Wouldn’t these be great hanging on a wall???  They are 40″ wide so the backing does not have to be pieced.  They are 12″ wide so they are really reasonable to kit.  Many include button packs that add the awe factor.

Display them on a wall with the kits below them.  The kits – including pattern – will be very reasonable.  Why not take it a step further and offer it as a BOM mailing program?  We are entering travel season so visitors can sign up to receive a kit a month in their mailbox!  How fun is that??? 

Seeing Red in Your Future!

Tis the season and while this season is winding down, as a shop owner, you need to look to the future.  Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  And, preparing for this holiday is easier than you think!

Hearts Intertwined is made from 10 inch fabric squares so not only is it attractive, it is easy to kit!


Item #PM592  Retail $8.50

You already have all of your red and green fabrics pulled for your Christmas displays.  Now it is time to split them for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day!  Many of the fabrics in your Christmas lines are basic designs that can be incorporated into these next mini holidays.

This Patchwork Table Runner is a great way to use up those ends of bolts in kits.

Or, why not start a series of mini quilts that are kitted and picked up each month?  These darling additions include an Ackfeld Hanger that give them that awe factor.  Everyone has a spot for these littles…
