Houston Shop Hop 2017

We are a little over a month away from the annual Houston Quilt Shop Hop! This year there are once again 9 shops participating:

Cactus Quilts
Calico Cats
Fabrics Etcetera
Katy Quilt 'n Sew
Pinwheels and Posies
Quilts Emporium
Quilters Cottage
Quilters Crossing
Quilters Quarters

The Shop Hop Dates are Wed, March 29 through Sat. April 1st.
The hours each day are from 9:00 am-6pm 
except for Friday where we extend the hours to 9am-7pm.

You will pick up your passport at the first shop you visit and get it stamped to prove you visited. At each shop you will receive a free pattern for a star block. You may choose to purchase a kit to make this block for $9. Each block is unique to that store. Each store will also have a quilt displayed that uses all 9 blocks to make a quilt. You have the option of purchasing a finishing kit so that you may put your blocks together in the way that best pleases you! These options will be displayed on the website This way you can plan ahead and be prepared to purchase your finishing kit when you arrive at that store.

Shop Hop bonuses: If you make any purchase at a store on the hop you will receive a free gift! 

When you have visited all 9 shops (within the dates of the hop!) and gotten stamped at each shop you will turn in your passport at the last shop you visit and receive a coupon page. The coupon page is good for a 20% off discount on one item at each shop on one return visit and is redeemable through December 31st 2017! 

Great job you have finished the hop!

Now all of these completed passports will be put into a drawing. The GRAND PRIZE is a Quilting Cruise out of Galveston Texas for one lucky winner and his or her very best quilting friend or spouse! 
Second prize is a GO BIG accu-cutter and third prize is a Tutto sewing machine carrier!

More chances to win: Each shop on the hop will draw 2 names of hoppers who have visited that day and give them each a $25 gift card! 

If you are as excited about the quilting cruise as we are, don't wait to win, you can sign up with Al Magee.
Should you be the lucky winner your down payment will be refunded to you!  
So if you win the shop hop or not, we'd love you to cruise with us! 

And let me tell you! There are many, many prizes to be won on the cruise! Many quilting activities are in the works, classes, show and tell, pajama party, and even some possible seminars not to mention all the fabulous amenities the ship and ports of call have to offer!
