A new kind of Shop Hop - 1250 stores! No passports! No fees!
How about this… a shop hop type event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play? Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!
Prizes, collectibles and more fun!
Exclusive Fabric Plates by Zebra Patterns will be available in shops around the country. Each one is unique! Collect a bunch to create fun projects, sewing studio wall art or even a fun backing for your quilt.

What is MODERN quilting?
“Modern” seems to be the new buzz word in
quilting these days.
But what does it mean to
be a modern quilter?
Weeks Ringe of American
Quilt Retailer Magazine recently shared a few
about what it means to be MODERN:
Modern quilts are original and do not come
from patterns or techniques of traditional quilt
designs. Modern fabric combinations are more eclectic
rather than using fabrics from one particular
line. Also, solid fabrics are very favorable.
Modern quilting is about creativity and
The modern quilter is not necessarily young!

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the
instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling
well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid
wearing such products to class.
