Join the 6th Annual Wisconsin Shop-Hop
Mark your calendars – June 2 through June 24, 2017 are the dates for the upcoming sixth annual Wisconsin Quilt Shop-Hop. The official website may be accessed by clicking here, and on it you will find an interactive map showing the different regions and the participating quilt shops.
General Shop-Hop Overview
There is a special fabric line designed by Holly Taylor and presented by Moda which will be available only at the participating quilt shops. There are prizes available to win by visiting the shops and getting your ‘passport’ stamped at each place. You would need to pick up your ‘passport’ at the first store you visit. For more specific information about the prizes available and what you need to do to win, please see the website link above. The Grand Prize is a trip for two to the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas!
Worth noting are the core hours for all participating shops: M-F 9:30 – 5:30, and Sat 9:30 – 4:00. The shops may extended their hours beyond these as well. The Shop-Hop put together a newspaper with ads from all the shops, sorted by section. You can pick up a newspaper now at any of the participating shops. I saw the newspaper during our weekend adventure in Madison, and again this latest road trip just a few short days ago. Here is the map showing the six different sections:
I plan to definitely hit up a few of our local shops during the Shop-Hop. We will also be traveling a bit during June, so I hope to visit those near the LaCrosse area. I will, of course, share my finding here with you. Doesn’t this look fun, to plan for a road trip? It’s only a bit over a month away! I’ll remind you again, closer to the start of the event. ~smile~
