The Quilters Friend Shop Hop is on from August 12 - 28th 2011. I have been busy making and quilting my shop hop quilt and finally I finished it this afternoon so see below.
The 6 shops involved are -
Village Books & Crafts - Palmerston North, Cherry Pie Bernina - Levin, Sawmillers Quiltery - Te Marua (Upper Hutt), Quilters Land - Masterton, Crafty Pea - Pahiatua and QuiltWorks in Waipukurau.
We have given you 3 weekends and 2 full weeks to visit each of these shops to participate. When you pay your $40 registration you choose what colourway quilt you would like to receive. My quilt is Batiks (lime, purple, turquoise and black background), Cherry Pie Bernina's is Bright Childrens; Sawmillers Quiltery's is 1930's; Quilter Lanes is Blue and White, Crafty Pear's is Country and Quiltworks' is Kaffe Fasset. You will soon be able to see all quilts on the website http://www.quiltersfriend.wordpress.com/ .
Here is my quilt "The Grape Harvest"
Although I have set hours I am happy to open up at any other time if you ring or email me. I will be around all 3 weekends so can open up later no problem. Check with each of the other shops as well as many of us are happy to open later to suit your travel arrangements.I look forward to seeing you.
Come in and register now. Get a group and travel together to each of the shops. Have fun and drive safely.
