We had a great time at the Houston Quilt Market learning about the 2016 theme for the Row by Row Experience ... Home Sweet Home! We are busy planning our ROW for 2016.  

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!

Here is The Fabric Shop's ROW for 2015 featuring Noah's Ark.  This ROW will be available through January 1, 2016.

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.

Take a Class at Home!

We have discovered two excellent YouTube videos on the Creative Sensation Pro.  These would be great for owners of the Creative Sensation and possible the Creative Performance.  Each video is about two hours long and you will learn so much!  It's like taking an individual lesson that you can start, stop, pause and replay anytime!  They also have video's on the Quilt Expression 4.2, Creative 3.0, Performance 5.0, Viking Opal 670 & 690, and Viking Sapphire 960Q. 

Click HERE to watch the first video on the Creative Sensation Pro in s separate window.  To find more video's by Village Sewing, select the video from the right hand column or search You Tube for "Village Sewing."
