California Row by Row Experience

Great information!Just a caution about your sewing machine needles⚠️. We are seeing quite a few machines coming in with problems caused by a budget brand of needles being sold at some department stores. These needles are made so poorly that they will actually cause your machine to not sew properly. To demonstrate - the needle on the left is a Schmetz brand needle size 80 and on the right is the department store needle size 70. This size needle should be finer than the Schmetz, and as you can see, not only is it thicker, but it’s also longer😱! Other needles in the same department-store-pack are made backwards or are bent. Consumers are purchasing these needles in good faith, and then spending hours trying to find the cause of their sewing machine problem, all the while certain that it can’t be their machine needle because it’s a brand-new pack😤. And the worst part about this is that newbies to sewing, who are keen to get involved in this hobby that we all love so much, think that the problems that they are experiencing are caused by them doing something wrong, and with a hit to their confidence, they just give up🙄. No matter if you have an enormous machine that you use every day, or a small one, that you get out every now and then, we recommend using brand-quality needles like Schmetz, that you can purchase from all good sewing stores.

So California . . . what designs would you like to see? What is your favorite shape?For some shops coming up with a concept, designing, creating and making a pattern is very difficult, so we are asking you.....what types of rows and/or blocks would you like to see this year? What is the first thing you think of when you hear the phrase "taste the experience"?? Thanks for your input! ... See MoreSee Less

California wine

We all take pictures of plated food, so I think something like that with wine and chocolate. Or restaurant logos.

I prefer pieced over applique and think fruits and veggies would make a beautiful quilt!

I know this is weird but Taste makes me think mouth or tongue experiences things like sunsets, roller coasters, kisses or kayaks or biking or hiking

Coffee

I think some kitchen utensils (in addition to foods) would be fun

What Rebecca says regarding piecing. I detest fusible appliqué and it am not quick enough at hand appliqué to complete a row-by-row containing a lot of it. I like, too, the idea of having cooking utensils and kitchen accessories included.

Wine, cake, doughnut

I like the 18” blocks more than the rows.

Music....lots of black and white!

Please try for some creative patchwork, not just applique rows.

Marshmallow roasted over a camp fire.

I think a backyard bbq needs to be a design! who doesn't love a good backyard bbq - call it Q'in it up!

I don’t care what shape it is, any shape is fine. I like the idea of applicable to the area. Walnuts in Visalia, chocolates for Porterville from the lovely store next to Calico Mermaid, olives for Corning......the list goes on. I hope the shops will include local foods.
