Dear Customers and Friends,

We had our final shop owner's meeting to finalize all the details about the 
The 14th annual Quilt Shop 'til You Drop. We can't believe how soon it's coming! It's always a fun event and this year should be extra fun. The hop will take place April 28-30. Hours are 9am-9pm on Thursday and Friday, 9am-5pm on Saturday.

There will be lots of goodies and prizes. Customers will receive a free 9" quilt block pattern at each of the 11 shops along the way. Each shop has designed it's own quilt layout pattern using the blocks, available for purchase. We've also added a Treasure Hunt this year as part of the event. 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!

We will have a Trunk show of Annemarie Yohnk's Quilts Remembered miniature quilts on display at the shop during the hop.
Annemarie's patterns are also available on our website now. We've also planned some great FREE demonstrations by Annemarie and Susan. Be sure to plan your hop so you can make it to one (or more!)
