Posted in Special Events tagged , , at 11:36 pm by satinmoon

New quilters  wants to know !

Seasoned quilters want to play!

finest quilt shops

and their cute as bugs owners and staffs

join together to bring you  exciting days  over  the week of June 20-25.

Make plans now with your friends  or family to join you.

Groups of four hoppers make an eco freindly , car pooling “Four-Pack.

For fun  wear something that identifies each person as part of your “Four Pack.”

like  Anna Laura  Felt Lady Badges,

or  designer outfits

with matching mascot .

Or maybe just  don matching hats.

 Plan which stores you wish to visit each day and map out your route.

Pick up a “passport ” at your first SHOP HOP  stop,

You might want to make a special cover so it won’t get lost or torn!

Have your passport stamped at each shop you visit.

and receive more stamps for every $10 you spend .

Each shop will offer a unique  .15 m cut of floral fabric,

and the free Granny’s  Flower Garden block directions,

to fuel your  creation of  a shop hop memory quilt using   your own back ground and finishing fabrics.

WHAT A GREAT WAY TO USE YOUR STASH!

Every shop will inspire you with at least one new idea for block assembly,

plus a way to  use  the rabbit applique/quilting pattern.

  (100% of  this separate  purchase supports the  the Red Cross Tsunami Relief fund .)

Be sure to give yourself plenty of visiting and shopping time!

Each shop will have great values  and surprising delights just for you.

You may wish to bring address labels to make it easier to register for individual shop draws and contests .

 Don’t forget to leave your completed passport at the last shop you visit!

The Grand Prize winner will  receive a $25 gift certificate from  EACH STORE .

Get your car ready .

Bring your daughters and sons, grandma and neighbors and friends .

We can’t wait to see you smile and enjoy yourself!

    Thank you for such a creative shop hop program. You lovely shop owners get more creative each year, I don’t know how you always manage to top last years program but you do it! I have been wanting to try grandmothers flower garden ever since Marilyn Fuller let me practice on some of her flowers at our recent show and I realized it was not as difficult as it looked to paper piece.
