Quilt Shop "Til You Drop 2011

We had our final shop owner's meeting today to finalize all the details about the Twin Cities shop hop. That always makes us aware of how soon it is coming. It's always a fun event and this year I think it will be extra fun. The dates are April 28-30. Hours are 9am-9pm on Thursday and Friday, 9am-5pm on Saturday. You will receive a free quilt block pattern at each of the 11 shops along the way. Each shop has designed it's own quilt pattern, using those blocks, available for purchase. We've added a Treasure Hunt this year as part of the event. You will receive a list of 11 unusual things to find along the way, one at each shop. Find them all and get entered into a drawing for a bundle of gift certificates--one from each shop! But that's not all! We will have a Trunk show of Annemarie Yohnk's miniature quilts on display. Both Annemarie and Susan will be doing demos during the shop hop, titles and times are listed in the class schedule and on the website. And of course there are some wonderful prizes you may win. Go to all the 11 shops and get your passport stamped to be entered into the drawings for these great prizes. Hope you can make it! It's going to be great fun!
