We Quilt This City!

We Quilt This City!

Every summer we host thousands of visitors from near and far in our happy little town of Hamilton. Many of these visitors come to us as their end destination or as part of a detour on their road trip. No matter how our visitors get to us, we do all we can to make sure that they have the best experience in Hamilton.

If you needed another excuse to come visit Hamilton this Summer, starting June 21st we are participating in the Row by Row Experience again this year!

The Row by Row Experience is a wonderful program started in 2011 by Janet Lutz to help quilt shops get more visitors in what might otherwise be slow summer months. All the quilt shops participating in Row by Row have their very own free pattern to help you make a quilt block, and if you are the first to complete a quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different 2018 participating shops, you win a stash of 25 fat quarters and you win a bonus prize if you use our block and bring it in to our store!

The theme for Row by Row this year is “Sew Musical” and we have our very own pattern called “We Quilt This City.” The pattern features a beautiful appliqué town and music notes, hopefully not bringing just your quilts, but also your community in harmony.

"We Quilt This City"

To get your free Missouri Star Row by Row pattern all you need to do is come to Penney’s Quilt Shop and ask for our Row by Row pattern! Each customer is limited to one pattern. Sorry to all of our online customers, this pattern is only available in person!

The Row by Row experience will run from June 21st to September 4th, 2018, and you will have until October 31st, 2018 to submit your quilt for a prize.

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day! A world without sewing machines… I don’t even want to think of it.

Picking out a sewing machine is like buying a new car. There are endless options with varying features and details, all of them will get you from A to B, but the best part is the ride. If you’re going  to log a solid 12 hours on the sewing machine, you better enjoy the ride because everyone knows that the best sewing machine is the one being used!

Which brings us to today’s subject, the Baby Lock Jazz Sewing Machine! Baby Lock Sewing has so graciously offered a machine for us to give away, so we just had to choose the Jazz! It is fast, smooth, and easy to operate.

Here are some of the reasons we love it:

  • 12 inch workspace to the right of the needle… plenty of room for maneuvering large projects
  • Sews up to 1,000 stitches per minute… super fast and super accurate!
  • 28 unique stitches… well-equipped to take your creativity to new heights
  • 9 feet attachments
  • Needle Threader
  • Knee Lifter
  • …and so many more features!

Choose how you want to enter below and we will choose one winner for the sewing machine on Monday, June 19th, at 5pm! We will also choose 6 people to each win two yards of a sewing-themed fabric!
