Shop Hop Anyone?

Today begins the Quilter's Fling Shop Hop in the Northeast Ohio area! There are nine shops participating and the theme this time around is Strips & Dips. With each stop you can purchase a kit to make a block for each shop and if you stop at all of the shops you'll have collected enough strips to create a whole jelly roll!

Also, if you know you cannot make it to each shop, you will still be entered into individual baskets of the shops you did stop at so there are prizes to still be had. But, if you make it to all of the shops, you will be entered into the Grand Prize drawings which includes Gift Certificates for each shop and many more prizes. Oh, and you get a free book when you visit all 9 shops!
 I was lucky enough to quilt one of the Shop Hop samples. Each Shop takes the same blocks and laid them out differently. Some are quite unique and if you like one of the shop's samples, they'll have kits and instructions for you too!
The nicest thing about this Shop Hop is it runs from now until April 20th (next Saturday) so you have 10 days to enjoy and hit the shops at your leisure. Each shop will be open Monday - Saturday from 10am - 5pm atleast (they may have normal shop hours that may be longer or different).

For more information about the Shop Hop, visit their website by clicking here. There's a list of all of the shops including their full addresses and contact information, and a printable map. Did I mention there are dip recipes to try at each shop too? Yay for snacks. You'll need the energy to hit all of the shops.

Anyone feel like a little retail therapy???

  1. Enjoyed seeing your quilting on the 2 quilts that Gail did. Also found it interesting to hear how your shop hop was run in comparison to ours here in St. Louis. Some of the same rules applied, but I loved the ideas of trying dips at each shop. Also getting a free book if you completed all the shops is a great incentive. We had 10 this year (usually have 12), and I did them all -- did not win a thing! boo hoo. We even had an optional canned good donation - which I did at each shop. At least the food shelters will benefit from those that gave. I really like reading your blog.
