SHOP WITH US
Come shop with us in our online store! We’ve got loads of fun official Row by Row Experience™ merchandise including pins, fabric, and kits from previous years.
Note about the map
Important! On the map you will see a street labeled Hazelhurst, just to the right of the red balloon. That is the wrong name! The name of the street is actually Marisa Heights. So, when you’re looking for the store, it’s at the corner of New Court Ave. and Marisa Heights (which is a teeny little street with a big sign).

Bring the Kids
Summer 2017 debuted Row by Row Experience’s brand new program, Row by Row Junior. It’s designed for kids ages 6 to 14. They travel along with an adult, collect free row patterns designed just for them to make, and learn to sew with family help.
