The Quilting Bee in Chesapeake  and

What’s Your Stitch ‘n Stuff  in Virginia Beach

This summers theme is

All shops will be open Mon.-Sat. 10am-5pm
(Check individual shops for extended store hours.)
Grand Prize — $400 Quilter’s Shopping Spree
Lots of Prizes Daddy-O!

Here is a sneak peak at our quilt.

Earn your Varsity Letter this summer. Register at any of the participating shops during the Summer Hop 2011 and you will receive a passport, a “FREE” charm, and a pattern for that shops quilt block. Then at each shop receive a block pattern, and charm. Finishing instructions will be given at the last shop along with a special charm and your “Q”.  Partially completed passports can be dropped off at your last shop to be eligible for door prizes.

Holly sent me a set of the charms and they are really cute!  They are all quilting related.  A rotary cutter, scissors, thimble… and such.

I think the charms would be really cute hanging on any quilt.  I am working on My Happy Place, and I thought I would put on my charms, guild name tags, shop pins, quilt show pins, etc.  A fun way to showcase some things in my sewing room.  And get them out of the drawers and all in one place.

Also, this summer we have a special treat for you. Our quilt was designed in conjunction with Cindi Edgerton. Each shop will have a MINI TRUNK SHOW from her paper pieced pattern company, A Very Special Collection. All models will be different and have a different theme.

So come on out to our SOCK HOP – SHOP HOP!!

As always our shop will have some extra goodies for everyone who comes in this week!

So, pick up your passport at any of the shop and get hopping!

Later, Sandra
