Time for a Road Trip! New York State Summer Row by Row Shop Hop: July 1 - September 2, 2013
Posted by equilterscorner on Monday, July 1st, 2013
Summer is a beautiful time to jump in the car to take in the gorgeous scenery of New York, while listening to great tunes, hiking some park trails and visiting 69 of our state’s finest quilt shops. Now you can add to the fun by collecting free patterns, too! This year’s Shop Hop theme is Fairs and Festivals.
It's the easiest shop hop ever! Here’s how it works:
Visit any of the participating quilt shops from July 1 through Labor Day (September 2), 2013. Each shop is giving away a pattern for one row in a Summertime Row Quilt. Pick up as many patterns as you can, then mix and match your favorites to create a fun and unique quilt. No passports, nothing to join, visit a few or all 69 participating NY State shops. We will have a complete list of participating shops available at Quilters Corner. Have fun traveling, shopping and collecting all the different patterns, then have more fun making the rows and designing your special quilt.
Yes, there are prizes! The first person to bring a finished (quilted, bound and labeled) quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different shops to Quilters Corner will receive a bundle of 25 beautiful fat quarters! AND the first person to bring a completely finished quilt into Quilters Corner that includes our Apple Harvest Festival row (shown below) will receive a $20 gift certificate to Quilters Corner! Other shops will offer bonus prizes as well.
