Row by Row Experience Update

I got to attend the Row by Row Experience schoolhouses.  Drum roll please…as of that schoolhouse, over 3,200 shops are participating this year!  Here are the most popular patterns and companions – all are in the top 100.

These two patterns – Welcome (#PXR01) and Butterfly House (#PXR02) which feature the license plates from Patchabilites were huge hits!  The nine inch Ackfeld Hanger (#33062) is the perfect way to display them.

License to Play (#RQD113) is a throw size quilt that uses 24 of the license plates that can be collected from participating Row by Row shops.  It is fat quarter friendly so it is easy to kit.  This pattern would also be easy to adapt to any size – depending on how many plates are collected.





This Car Caddy (#CLPCLA041) fits over the headrest in your car.  Why not make two – one for each seat so your traveling companions can be organized.  And this throw features the new Creative Grids Half Square Triangle tool.
To see all of the fabrics and companions for the Row by Row Experience, visit our website and search Row by Row Experience. If they aren’t in stock, order anyway.  The buyers are on top of it and already have inventory arriving!

The Perfect Summer Project!

HHD101Talk about the perfect portable project!  These mini wooden hoops (#HHD101) frame a design that is slightly less than 1 3/4″.  These “Made in America” minis are the perfect gift.  Each pendant comes with a jump ring to turn them into a necklace.  The pattern for the “Hello” design is included.
Or add a pin or a magnet on the back – or turn them into napkin rings for a special luncheon….the possibilities are endless!
Need some help with the designs?  Shirley Hudson has that covered as well….

This pattern (#HHD369) includes twelve different designs – one for every season.  The pattern includes three different alphabets as well.  Two of the patterns can be personalized to your own needs.
Display both at the register – the perfect impulse buy that will have them coming back for more.  Why not have each employee make one – and wear them.  Walking, informed advertising is ALWAYS a good thing!  And, since they actually made one, they can explain how easy they are to frame and finish.  These are selling fast – but more are expected shortly so they will be here in plenty of time for the summer Row by Row Experience season!

Show your Row to its Best Advantage

This idea is simply brilliant!  Christine Van Buskirk has designed six different settings for the Row by Row Experience.  Picture your shop row in any or all of these quilts.  And the only thing that can make it better?  Each one features a different Creative Grids® tool.  
Show Your Row: Square-On-Square (#CLPCVB009) features the six inch Square on Square Tool (#CGRJAW7). 
Show Your Row: Honeycomb (#CLPCVB010) features the ever popular 60 Degree Triangle (#CGRT60).


Show Your Row: Hourglass (#CLPCVB011) features the new Half-Square 4-in-1 Triangle Ruler (#CGRBH1).


Show Your Row: Friendship Star (#CLPCVB012) features the Cat’s Cradle Tool (#CGRDH1).

Show Your Row: Orange Blossom (#CLPCVB013) features the Round Up Tool (#CGRATK1).


Show Your Row: Star Shine (#CLPCVB014) features the Strippy Stars Tool (#CGRDH2).

Choose fabrics that compliment YOUR row and have kits available as well as the patterns.  But don’t stop there.  Use this as an opportunity to demonstrate one of the top selling Creative Grids® rulers.  This one is simply a win/win/win!
