Download the Travel List and Picture List to see all participating shops and photos of their blocks.

Wool Stitchery and quilting at its best!

Like it’s cousin Row by Row Experience,  Wooly Block Adventure is all about collecting fun patterns. With Wooly Block, patterns are collected in a variety of ways, in shops, online and by mail order during the event. You do not need to be near participating shops to have fun and collect with Wooly.

People who participate in WBA are affectionately known as ‘Woolies’, quilters and stitchers full of  enthusiasm and warmth for all things wool.

Wooly patterns are highlighted each week on the RxR Experience website during the Wooly Block Adventure season, via Special Shoplight Section. Wonderful sampler projects bring ‘woolies’ together in their shared love of wool. Woolies unite!
