The theme this year is "Sew Musical" so watch for some creative musical quilt designs.... and Yes, I will be participating in this year's Row-by-Row. I'm so excited about the theme since music is almost as big in my life as quilting!
Row-by-Row 2017 "On The Go!"
I was part of the Row by Row Experience this year, and my design was a cruise ship, in honor of our local guild's fall cruise. Pattern and kits are now available. Another must-have: My Moose Country Quilts Row-by-Row license plate in brilliant lime green: QLTR 4 LIFE.
Planning a trip with friends? Give me a call before you come and I'll try to have a special demo ready to share!
Here's a link to the Row by Row website and Idaho shops for 2017: Idaho Row-by-Row and if you just want to look at the
rows and license plates for each store, select the "RxR Picture List" icon on that website and you can scroll through
all of them. There's a listing of all the shops and their contact information under "RxR Travel List".
Facebook fans, of course Row-by-Row is there too! Check out "Idaho Row by Row Experience" and you can see the
latest and greatest from both shop owners and Rowers!
Currently open by appointment only, unless posted on my Home Page.
If you are planning your trip, I may be able to accommodate other dates and times. Just give me a call and let's see!
Artists' Studio Tour of Sandpoint - coming in August
2017's Tour is over, but you can still see a lot of quilts here... it's a mini quilt show most of the time, since I have a design wall covering my classroom walls. Look for the Tour again next year on the second and third weekends of August (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). As details are available, I will post them here. (FYI, dates for 2017 were Aug. 11, 12, 13 and 18, 19, 20.)
What is the Tour?
The Artists' Studio Tour is a self-guided tour in and around the Sandpoint, Idaho area where local artists invite the public into their personal studios. Brochures and maps are distributed around Sandpoint and local communities, and can be viewed online at Art Tour Drive. I was Studio #15 in the 2017 brochure, and the quilt shown was made with Australian fabrics and is my original design. Lots of Australian fabrics are on hand!
Want to come look at the quilts and do some shopping? Call and make arrangements.
This museum quality traveling exhibit has taken a tour in our area, and will be traveling the rest of the state over the coming year. If you happen to see it, check out the examples and text from students I worked with from Valley View Elementary in Bonners Ferry, entitled Fabric, Fact & Fiction.
"ArtsPowered Schools fosters dynamic and meaningful collaboration between classroom teachers and artists that culminate in artist residencies in schools across Idaho. This presentation highlights the depth and relevance of arts learning for students and teachers, and celebrates the creative energy and expertise of Idaho's artists. Professionally presented visual artworks, interpretive text, photographs and video vividly tell the story of ArtsPowered Schools residencies during the 2016-2017 school year."
