Row by Row 2015 is Officially Underway
Many of you may remember this program from last year and we are really exited about participating again this year. This is a fun shop-hop type event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play? Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
All 50 US states and Canada, too!
Travel, collect, and shop starting June 21st
No passports! No fees!
Prizes, collectibles and more fun!Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2015 rows from 8 different 2015 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Click here for more details. Our row sample will be posted on the California Row By Row Facebook page on June 1st. Patterns will be available from June 21 thru September 8th. Here is a look at our block, Gone Quilting (which is slightly different than our earlier sneak peak).
Just like last year, we've also created a great table runner that incorporates our block. Kits will be available for both the block and the table runner extension.

Renovation Thread Sale!
In my last post I mentioned our store renovation. We've already started the electrical and painting and soon we will have new flooring! As a reminder, we will be closed for two days while the flooring is being completed, Sunday, May 31st, and Monday, June 1st. We will be open again on Tuesday, June 2nd.
Cotton & Chocolate is adding two new thread lines, Superior's Kimono Silk thread and the Sulky Petites Cotton thread. The Kimono Silk 2-ply thread is a very fine, 100% premium multi-filament silk, ideal for hand and invisible machine applique, detail quilting, lacework and bobbin thread. The Sulky Petites cotton thread is the handiest handwork thread because it is easier, faster and more fun than floss. Plus you no longer have to separate floss, no tangling, and you can cut any length you want! It is equivalent to using a 2-strand floss. In both of these new thread lines we are carrying all 80 colors!
In order to make room in the store for these new thread lines, we are closing out some of our existing thread lines. While supplies last all of our Gutermann, YLI variegated and YLI silk threads are on sale.
