June News from Main Street Quilting Company
Row by Row Experience
Row by Row is coming soon! This year's theme is "Home Sweet Home." This fun nationwide shop hop runs from June 21- September 6, 2016. We will have patterns and kits for sale during those times. From Sept 7 - Oct 31 we are in a holding pattern while quilts are being made. The first person with a completed quilt (quilted and bound) to come into the store will receive a fabulous prize! We would love to display your quilt!!
If you are unable to travel to Bozeman, this summer... The rows can be pre-ordered for mailing- they will be mailed on November 1st. If you know anything about Row by Row- it's a blast and we love participating. For this reason our store is strictly adhearing to the rules set forth by the organizers. Feel free to check out the rules at http://www.rowbyrowexperience.com/row-by-row-experience-faqs.htm.
A super cute row is in the works for you in two color ways, and we'd like your help determining the most popular color way. Kits will be made in both colors- Teal and Lime or Blue and Yellow (ignore that weird grey... thankfully, we decided against that!), but let us know your favorite so we can cut kits appropriately. Email us with your vote for a discount on your next purchase! Vote "Yellow" (left) or "Green" (right) in the subject line of your email. Send your vote to firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount. Voting ends June 3rd.
