It's time for the shop hop again
If you live in or near San Diego County, the third annual Cruisin' Quilters Shop Hop started yesterday.
The event lasts for one week, and requires a visit to 18 quilt shops. Each visitor gets a 'passport' which is stamped by each shop. At each store there are raffle prizes (I've already won three quilt magazines, and my mom won a quilt pattern), usually a plate of cookies and coffee, freebies, more freebies if you purchase something, a free block pattern so you'll be able to create a sampler quilt upon finishing, and just an all-around good time.
Participants who have their entire passports stamped are eligible for huge prizes.
