Minnesota Row by Row Experience

Very interesting!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.

Weeklong forcast!

I put a copy of this on my apartment door. One of my neighbors knocked to see if I was looking for a house keeper.

That’s the perfect weekend

I’ve not been a fan of the themes for the last couple of years. I learned about row by row when ‘water’ was the theme, which I loved, as well as ‘home’. What about doing seasons over four years? Or outdoors?

Minnesota Row by Row Experience

Coming up with a concept, designing, and writing a Row by Row pattern is not an easy challenge for many shops. They need your help. What types of rows or blocks would you like to see this year? What does "Taste the Experience" make you think of? Thanks for letting us know what you're thinking! ... See MoreSee Less

Less applique

Rural settings. And BRIGHT colors. Tired of fish and dull lifeless colors

Something that reminds me of old time farm life
