 Hi all!

We won!  

We won!  

Yes, our little Cardinal Building the Snowman Row finished in the Top 5 for Likes on Creative Grids' Facebook page.  Thank you so much for your support and LIKEing our row! :)

The past two months have been colored with the rosy glow of the ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE!  We've loved getting to know hundreds of quilters/shoppers from all over the country, as they've come in to pick up our free patterns.

The patterns will be available for free only through this  Saturday, August 30th.  (Snowman at Charlotte's Bargain Fabric, Sunflower at Charlotte's Sew Natural)

We've cut kits for both rows, running out of fabric several times.  We've also reordered, now for a third time, our SEW HAPPY license plates.  

The popular SEW HAPPY fabric plate is expected soon.  Please place your order now.

We know you're going to want to have this year's "first edition" plate, and be ready to add next year's to the "collection".  LOL

Limited time - ROW BY ROW SPECIAL

 SALE PRICED through the weekend:

25% off Mary's newest SEW DOWNTOWN bag bundle, using 3 stripes from the exclusive Row By Row fabric. (The 4th, Winter, Tree Stripe was fussy cut and included in our Sew Happy Snowman Kits.)

While it is 3-SEASON, it will be perfect to carry this AUTUMN!  We've got kits only while the stripe supply lasts:

 WE have a winner!  Congratulations to Shirley Andrews of Salina.  She was the first to present a completed quilt at Charlotte's Sew Natural and she won 5 bundles of 5 coordinated fat quarters.  

Her quilt is a beauty,  even without either of our rows!  LOL  Nice job combining the rows and license tags, front & back!  Which is which? :)

As of this writing, the prize is still available at Charlotte's Bargain Fabric in Newton's Chisholm Trail Mall! :)

Shirley & I first met at The Dubois Farm Retreat this past spring and had a lot of fun sewing for 2 days.

 Looking for a place to hide out and sew sometimes, or stay "centered" during the Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop?  They also host "sewing days", where you can come and get help with projects.

Check out the Dubois Farm Retreat, located on I-135 just south of Newton, very close to Charlotte's Bargain Fabric.

 Let's celebrate our SNOWMAN ROW's FACEBOOK WIN with


Mark your calendars, and come prepared to eat, play & love (Creative Grids Rulers, that is!)

Saturday September 20th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m 
at Charlotte's Sew Natural, downtown Newton.

We'll have Creative Grids 




We'll have a variety of CREATIVE GRIDS RULERS available for you to "test drive", so bring your fabrics (or we'll have some too).

Let us know if there's one you've always wanted to try and I'll be sure to have that on hand for you.

At the end of the day, we'll draw to give away some rulers, of course!

 Last week we introduced the new CREATIVE GRIDS SCRAP CRAZY 6 non-slip ruler.  We have several projects made with this, using fat quarters or scraps.

Gwen's version uses an assortment of hand-dyed and batik blue & yellow fabrics. 

 She added a couple of borders to make it a bit larger too.

 We've bundled the same and have ready for you to pick up or see it here:

We'd love to show you how this works.

Can't make it in?  See a video demo here:

Mary used scraps from previous baby quilts and will back with 60-inch wide CUDDLE!  

We have a very reasonably priced pattern for this project. Many ways to set these blocks - wacky or as regular as a "crazy" quilt can be. Lots of fun, either way!

See lots of CREATIVE GRIDS videos on their YouTube Channel, here:
