Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler! Shop Hop 2013

This is the first weekend of the 2013 South Louisiana Shop Hop and the fun begins in less than 24 hours.

We have 10 participating shop this year and we are happy, happy, happy to welcome Angie and The Quilted Owl into the group!

We have all been working hard to bring the 'Hoppers' the best and newest out there in the Quilting Universe and hope that everyone who is taking part in the festivities has a good time. After all, that is our theme every year!

 As we do each year, we design quilts in each shop and sell 'kits' to make the block that is specific to each store.  Each shop will have a different kit for sale for $5.00. The kit includes the fabric and instruction for that particular block. If you make it to each shop, in addition to getting your passport stamped, you will have a chance to buy your kit and see how each shop put them all together in their unique design. Finishing kits will be available for purchase at each shop as well so you can choose the one like and have everything you need to make a quilt top by the time you hit the last shop.

Only participating shops in the area will have these kits available.
Here again are the participating shops taking part in the Shop Hop for 2013.

Bright Hopes Quilting in Mandeville, LA
Sew This! in Abita Springs, LA
Mama's Quilt Shop in Independence, LA
Mes Amis in New Orleans, LA
The Quilted Owl in Jefferson, LA (on Jefferson Hwy near the Huey P. Long Bridge)
Cottage Creations in St. Gabriel, LA
Fabric Krazy in Baton Rouge, LA
The Quilt Niche in Houma, LA
The Quilt Cupboard in Morgan City, LA
The Borne Quilter, Lafayette, LA

Needless to say, dropping your name in the box for a chance to win any one of our fantastic baskets and getting your passport stamped at each shop is of high priority so make sure you come to our cutting table as you enter the store. If you bring those preprinted return address labels with you, you will save a little time there for looking around.

Remember that each passport includes $5.00 off coupons for regularly priced items totaling $25.00 and you will have a coupon for this at every store in the Shop Hop.

We also have a memory pin available for purchase if you have a passport, available only at participating stores and it is really pretty! $5.50

So, that brings us to the Prize Baskets!! Each store has a Big Prize Basket that will go to a lucky winner and all the passports that have been stamped by every shop will go into the box for the Super Big Prizes including the Grand Prize Tower.
