Row By Row & Quilt Shop Hop Services
Designing and kitting a row or block can be intimidating, especially with the boatload of other responsibilities that rest on your shoulders as a shop owner. Rather than add to the stress, consider outsourcing your design and kitting! We work with shops in a variety of ways, from converting their designs into PDF printable patterns, to full retail kitting with kits that show up at your shop door, ready to sell! Shop owners that we've worked with have been shocked at how cost-effective our design and laser-cutting services have been.
One shop owner expressed astonishment at the fabric savings per kit. She said that her customers were chomping at the bit for laser-cut kits, excited at the prospect of time savings and having fabrics that are pre-cut and pre-fused. With the increased value added, shops are selling fabric not just for $12 per yard, but for $36 to $50 per yard without customers batting an eye. That's 3X the sales. And our cutting services only cost a fraction of that.
We're not saying "Buy our products blindly" here. Just the opposite. You know your demographic better than anyone--you know what your customers will buy, and when they'll buy it. Create a custom kit with the help of our laser-cutting expertise to develop a specific product that will resonate with your customers, whether that's for this upcoming Row by Row, Shop Hop, or just if you'd like to start making higher margins and carrying a product that no other shop in your area does.

Laser Cutting with Collated Kitting
Our most popular service, this option includes laser-cutting, collated with an applique instruction insert into a poly bag. We also have printing and full retail kitting services that fall into this category, and can customize packaging to fit your needs.
Laser Cutting with Bulk Collation
Looking to make life easier for your customers and increase your margins at a value price? This option includes laser-cutting and allows you or your staff members to finish the kit collation in-house.
Wanting to hire an outside designer for your Row by Row or Shop Hop? Send us a rough sketch or image of what you're wanting and we'll digitize it and can add a fabric infill with fabrics from your shop so you can start pre-selling your block! Our design services include a full-color PDF pattern of your design, to which you will own the copyright.
Our main tiers of service are:
1. Pattern and Design Services: This includes vectorizing your concept. We charge $50 per hour for pattern writing and design. Most row or block patterns take between 1-2 hours, even with requested edits. Please note we do not work off "concept." We require an image or sketch and a $100 retainer. We 100% guarantee your satisfaction--we want you to be proud of the block or row you're offering to your customers!
2. Bulk Kitting Services: Our bulk kitting includes laser cut pieces, backed with FlexiFuse Premium Fusible and bagged by bulk color/piece into poly bags. This option can be bundled with our pattern/design services.
3. Collated Kitting Services: Our collated kitting includes laser cut pieces, backed with FlexiFuse Premium Fusible and bagged individually by kit into poly bags, with an applique instruction insert into each poly bag. This option can also be bundled with our pattern/design services.
We normally guarantee a turnaround time of 2 weeks (not including shipping time), but during Row by Row and Shop Hop season, our docket fills up quickly. Make sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible!
