SEW MUSICAL is the theme for the 2018 Row by Row Experience, which runs from June 21 - September 4. Nothing says music in Chicago like The Blues Brothers.  -->Click here for more information on the Row by Row Experience.


Our Row is called We're On a Mission to Sew. We’re on the Southside of Chicago, we have a full bobbin and half a spool of thread, the feed dogs are down and we’re wearing sunglasses.  Hit it. --> Click here to watch our video on our Row.

We have Kits for the Row in the shop. We also have Finishing Kits if you want to add the borders and binding like we did for our shop sample.

Don't forget to pick up your SEW'L MAN license plate! And, we have pre-fused Music Note appliqués available in the shop to embellish your project!
