Put Some HOP in Your Summer Travels

A New Kind of Shop Hop!
1250 Shops across 35 States and Ontario, Canada
No Passports, No Fees

It must be FUN!
It began in 2011 in New York state with just 20 shops.
Just look at this map of participating shops

There are no boundaries. If your travels take you across the country, visit any participating shop in as many states as you want. Each participating shop has designed its own unique row. The row pattern is yours FREE, just for visiting the shop. And only for visiting the shop. No patterns will be mailed or emailed. 
Here's the row designed by Happy Apple Quilts, Palm Harbor, FL (That's us!)

There is a special Facebook page for each state so you can see the rows before you go.

What about PRIZES! Can’t have a shop hop without prizes!

Combine at least 8 different rows into a quilt. Be creative. Assemble your rows any way you like. Be the first to take your completely finished quilt to a participating shop and receive a stack of 25 fat quarters! That means 1250 quilters can win! Receive a bonus prize if you used that shop's row in your quilt.  All winning quilts will be posted on Facebook.

Row by Row traveling dates for 2014 are July 1 through September 2. You can take your completely finished quilt (including quilting and binding) to any participating shop as soon as it is finished, but no later than October 31 in order to be eligible for a prize.

You can show off your quilt in as many shops as you want. But remember – only one prize per person.

Also have fun collecting fabric license plates specially designed by Zebra Patterns. Each shop has chosen their own vanity phrase for their plate.

See how cute our Sew Happy plate is on this
And the bag pattern is available to anyone - in the shop and online
