Preparing for the Shop Hop 2010

The local sewing shops in my area are hosting the 2010 Shop Hop Adventure: Fall Fabric Frenzy this weekend.  Over four days, I will be visiting ten local sewing stores for hopes of winning a grand prize!  Also, I am in search for some items on my shopping listing for future quilts.  Top items on my list are black background batiks, landscape fabrics, complementary fabric for my upcoming Philly Modern Quilt Guild, and background fabric for my Gumball Quilt.

I plotted out the adventure and determined that the drive from the first to the last store is 3 hours and 20 minutes.  Although it will be fun to visit new shops, it will be a long weekend full of driving.  Luckily, I have my list and it will make visiting the shops 20 times faster.

  1. Hi Angie,
    We must live near each other. I bought my ticket/booklet for the same shop hop but probably won’t go. I have so many things that must get done and time is marching on.
    Have fun! Hope you report back on the treasures you find.

  2. I was looking at this, but couldn’t do it because we have other things going on this weekend. Maybe next time we can plan a group from PMQG and take a big van or suv?!

  3. Looks like so much fun!
