As many of you know, coming on September 4, 2018 just two weeks and a day away is the My Happy Place Row Along. The Row Along itself will be 4 years old, each year it has had a different theme, but the Row Along part of the name has continued to exist. Each year, giveaways from sponsors have been offered and both Northcott and The Fat Quartershop are just a few of the great companies who have given us great products every year of this row along.
I do have some other news at the bottom of this post, so be sure you read the entire post, please…
So I know you must be wondering about what is happening with the Row Along. Well it’s right on track at this point, some fun things have been happening in the designer’s group we have for the row along and I’ve been seeing some amazing rows come to life for the row along this year… But I thought I’d tempt you with a little sneak peek of one of the perks of participating today and lets you in on the final list of participants for this year.
Northcott Fabrics has kindly given fabric to the designers participating to help them create their rows. You’ll be able to see those over the course of August as I announce each sponsor’s giveaways also. The designers will also feature their fabrics on their featured day of the row along.
If you haven’t joined us for previous row alongs, I will post an instruction/type note under the Sponsors list in this post for you. This is a long post, but it covers everything you need to know.
As a reminder, each designer has a free pattern for you this year. However, designers are only required to keep their patterns free for one week past there featured day. You must visit each day if you wish to download the patterns. Designers are free after that period to put their rows up for sale or leave them free for you to download. Patterns may be available on the designer’s website thru a cart system, a simple download, via google drive, one drive, Payhip, Craftsy, or any other way that the designer finds it easy to set her download. If you miss a pattern and want the pattern, please respect that designer and buy it if she has put it up for sale. Do not write to her and ask her to send it to you.
So, here we go…
It seems so funny that we are in February and I’m announcing an event for September. In this case tho, time is not our friend and we have to plan far ahead for events that are as large as the Row Along is each year.
Last year’s designers had the pleasure this year of helping me decide on the theme and it was a very close race between two different themes this year. This theme in fact won by just 1 little teeny tiny vote.
In its fourth year as an event hosted by Seams To Be Sew, this event has grown each year not only in visitors who come to see all the fuss, but designers who wish to participate. This is not a row by row affiliated event.
This post is here to take signups only for bloggers/designers who would like to participate by offering a free pattern row during this event.
Please do NOT signup if your not a blogger who intends to create a pattern to offer during the event, visitors do not need to signup for this event, we ask you to simply follow the blogs, and or social media pages so you’ll see the announcements during the events. My Facebook group also announces each day of this event so you can easily join it and receive an announcement each day of the hop also.
These are the requirements for this hop for each designer:
