Row by Row - On the Go!
"Row by Row On The Go! is 2017's theme and we'll be participating here at Pine Ridge Knit & Sew. We're super excited about Row by Row Experience's brand new program, Row by Row Junior, too! It's designed for kids ages 6 to 14. They travel along with an adult. They collect free row patterns designed just for them to make and they can learn to sew at home with family help and support from www.rowbyrowexperience.com.
Row by Row Junior follows the same rules and time schedule as adult Row by Row Experience, June 21 through Labor Day. Kids need to be in the shop to get the free pattern handout, but anyone can buy a kit. Grandmothers and travelling family can bring them home as gifts or souvenirs.
Row by Row Junior designed the five different row patterns so you can be sure they are kid-friendly. Make it an adventure traveling to collect all five and seeing how different shops make up their row.
The Pine Ridge Knit & Sew Row is "High Tops". Our sample was done by 10 year old Chloe Workman that we'll have on display at our Kick-Off event on June 21st at 10:00 AM.
Also note that the City of Quinte West is graciously donating a commemorative "City of Quinte" pin for every Row by Row kit that Pine Ridge creates. We want to send a great big THANK YOU to the city for continuing to support Quinte's Favourite Sewing Centre.
We'll be awarding "I Made This!" ribbons to the first five kids who return with something made using a Row by Row Junior pattern. Any sewing effort will be celebrated, not just quilting. Find Row by Row Junior's free online activities, kids' journal pages, support for learning to sew at home, and more at www.rowbyrowexperience.com this summer.
"We want our kids to learn how to sew and carry on this craft that's so dear to us," explains Janet Lutz, Row by Row's founder. "Travelling to new places, collecting something just for them, visiting Grandma, summer vacation... this is all part of the wonder and excitement of Row by Row Experience. Please join us."
