Shop Hops

Going on a shop hop is really fun. It allows you to visit the quilting shops that are in your region. You have the opportunity to see the different offerings of each shop. Also, you can check out new tools, fabrics, and other products. Gift baskets and some freebies are usually found in each store.  Sometimes a grand prize is offered. For more details about shop-hops listed here (or one located near you), find a designated shop-hop’s website. If one is not available, check a participating shop’s website for its shop-hop information.

We are proud to support more than a dozen shop hops each year. Our goal is to provide at least six patterns for each participating shop. As we process requests for our donations, we will continue to add the shop hops to this 2011 list. Here’s what we have thus far:
