Shop Hop 2010

Well, this is a head's up for all you "local" quilters. (local is relative, right?)

If you don't know by now, our Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler Shop Hop (is this number 4?) is scheduled for August 12, 13 and 14.

If you have never had the opportunity to "do" a Shop Hop, let me give you the run-down.

You buy a "passport" at any participating quilt shop for $5.00. At each shop, you get your passport stamped and fill out a chance for the In-Store raffle. These baskets are generous prizes and well-worth the chance. (Hint- you know all those self-adhesive address stickers you have floating around? Bring them. Saves time better spent looking around the store)

Each store will have a quilt made specially to "showcase" a current line of fabric and some shops have demos of products going on. This is a GREAT way to have some fun, break out of your comfort zone and see what the "other" shops have in stock.

Each passport also has included a $5.00 coupon to use with regular-priced items totaling $20.00+ so if you make a purchase, you're already ahead!

Now, after you hit ALL SIX PARTICIPATING STORES and get the stamps at each one, you place your passport in a container at the last one and THAT enters you for the Grand Prize Drawings. The shops all come together with the passports and pull the winners.

This year's Grand Prize is this nifty Perfect Caddy from Hinterberg Designs.

So here's your reminder... check around with your sewing friends and make a "road trip!" out of it. That is TOO much fun! Hire a bus and bring the whole guild!

The participating shops are:

The Bourne Quilter in Lafayette
Fabric Krazy in Baton Rouge
Amelia's Quilt Shop in Baton Rouge
The Quilting Niche in Houma
Mama's Quilt Shop in Independence
Bright Hopes Quilting in Mandeville

Okay, ya'll! Let's get Hopping and we'll see you there.
