This years theme is “Fun and Games”
We are excited to introduce you to the “Fun and Games” planned for the 2017 Southwestern PA Shop Hop! This year at each stop, you will enjoy technique demonstrations, patterns for the 2017 progressive quilt, a little thank you gift and chances to win shop door prizes, all inspired by our favorite games. The hop grand prizes include a cute little bag containing a $50.00 gift certificate from each shop (always a favorite prize), a vintage Singer Featherweight sewing machine (incredibly popular last year!) and stunning baskets overflowing with prizes from some of your favorite vendors! There are even prizes for the first person back with a completed progressive quilt, and for someone who visited the Creative Arts Festival. Five days to play in the quilt world – this is going to be great fun!
Western PA Shop Hop
Passport Premiere Party
Thursday ~ March 16th ~ 10:00am-9:00pm
The best way to begin your hop travel plans – with a visit the first day passports are available! You will get a peek at what will happen in June and a little gift for stopping in. This year, the gift is a coupon good for $5.00 off admission to the Pittsburgh Knitting and Creative Arts Festival held March 24th – 26th at the convention center. The passport will even have a spot to note your Creative Festival visit in order to be entered in an additional drawing at the end of the June hop. The organizers of the festival have been working to expand the crafts they showcase and quilting is becoming a huge focus for them – it will be fun to see all they have planned (Did you know that everyone who attends the Pittsburgh Knitting and Creative Arts Festival gets a little gift? Sounds like fun to me!). We hope to see you in the shop on the 16th of March, and downtown the following week!
