2017 Events & Workshops

 Row by Row Experience 2017 theme – “On the Go”

Once again, the Red Barn Sewing & Yarn Center will be participating in the Row by Row Experience. The theme this year is “On the Go” and our row is “Sew Flippin FUN!”

How about this… it’s like a shop hop, but it’s not… no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! All 50 states, Canada and Europe will be participating in this event which will run from June 21 – September 5, 2017. Click for more details and our bonus Row by Row projects.

The Red Barn Sewing & Yarn Center has a winner!

Nancy Rogers of Amesbury, MA is our winner and she was thrilled to be able to select her own 25 fat quarters. For having our “Sew Flippin FUN!” row in her finished quilt, Nancy also received a $25 gift certificate to the Red Barn.

Her quilt rows (top to bottom) are from the following shops:

  • Red Barn Sewing & Yarn Center – Merrimac, MA
  • Sew Creative – Beverly, MA
  • Seacoast Sewing & Quilting – Portsmouth, NH
  • Portsmouth Fabric Company – Portsmouth, NH
  • Sanford Sewing Machines – Sanford, ME
  • D&D Sewing and Quilting – Plaistow, NH
  • Angel’s Sewing & Vac Center – Salem, NH
  • Emma’s Quilt Cupboard & Sewing Center – Franklin, MA

Technique Classes:

  • The Art of Sewing by Hand – Slow down, we move too fast! Take a break from sewing everything quickly by machine and create a beautiful work of art, all sewn by hand. Crazy Quilting, Hand-Appliqué, English Paper-Piecing, Sashiko, Redwork, etc are all works of art sewn by hand. This is an opportunity to get together with others who like to “slow down” and enjoy the process of sewing by hand! Class is held on the 3rd Saturday of each month.

The time spent behind your sewing machine is some of the most treasured…

… so you deserve a machine that lets you get the most out of it. The Horizon Memory Craft 9400 was created with special, easy and time-saving features. Escape into a world of pure creativity with the Horizon Memory Craft 9400! Stop by to see it, touch it and stitch with it!


Thank you for 39 wonderful years!!!

We want to take this time to thank all of you for your continued patronage
and helping us to achieve this milestone! We feel very fortunate to have so many
quilting and knitting friends who continue to share their ideas and enthusiasm.
Without your support, specialty shops like ours could not exist.
