NEW STAMP! Bermuda

We are still at Hershey for Quilt Odyssey. I had several requests for Bermuda while we we’ve been here. So Guess what? Here’s Bermuda featuring St Peters Church Established 1612! Bermuda is a British Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. The church has been rebuilt from the original palm building way back when. I have not been to Bermuda – I need to go there! Want to come?

NEW LOOK! … focused direction

NEW Zebra Logo 2017In Fall 2017 we will be sporting a new look for “Zebra Patterns”. The new logo is cleaner and states our specialty of creative concepts and designs.

As you all know we have hundreds of patterns. Zebra started in 2000 and started blazing a dynamic path in 2004-2005 after my bought with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I am still doing okay after my stem cell transplant 12 years ago. While we will always support our legacy applique pattern line, we are surging forward to focus on custom concepts and designs for quilt shops. We want to partner with you or your quilt shop to build your brand!

The success of the world famous Row by Row Experience® FabricPlates™ has continued to demonstrate the popularity of individuality of shops, while succeeding to join the quilt community together with one program. We are going to focus on helping shops with unique branding and custom design. That means supporting shop hops, retreats, cruises, guild events and any other focused group who wants CUSTOM items to build their brand.   Look at just a small sampling of custom work.


This focus has evolved organically as we have partnered with many shops and organizations over the past 10 years doing exactly this! Now we will focus on creative concepts and designs for individual shops and events that will help to build branding.

We will kick off in the Fall with CharmStamps™. These are an addition to the Row by Row Experience® FabricPlate™ program. They are fun unique Charm sized 5 x 5 inch printed cotton square panels featuring something special about that particular shop! Unlike the plates CharmStamps™ are a perfect shape to incorporate into any quilt requiring a 5×5 block! Take a look and PLEASE contact us to get involved NOW to get your art started. That means quilt guilds too! We will be posting a current list of stores that have or will be getting CharmStamps™ very soon! CHARMSTAMP Logo
