Top Off Day

 

Robbie Sutton, a long arm quilter and the owner of Pieceful Hollow Designs is at the shop every Saturday between 2 and 3 to accept your top and review options with you.  That's Top Off Day:-))  If you can't make it on that day, you can leave it at any time and pick out a quilting design from her design book. Robbie will call you when your quilt is done, and you can pick it up here any time.

We have a Row by Row winner!  Will you be our Second Prize Winner?

 

Congratulations to Carol Zych of Albany NY.  She won 25 fat quarters plus a bonus for using our row.  Does this mean you can no longer win?  Not at all!  We are offering a second place prize if you have used our row.  Bring in your finished quilt and claim your prize:-))

 

What is the Row by Row? Visit a participating shop 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 to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!  Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters. Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize!  Click here for full details.

Remember, you must collect the row pattern personally. If someone gives you a copy, that is a violation of copyright and will cause your quilt to be disqualified.
