What is Maine Quilt Shop Hop?
A Charming Idea
Shop Hoppers receive a FREE 5" Charm square of the Shop Hop Theme Fabric. Collect them all to use for the exclusive Shop Hop project, or a design of your own. For 2013 each hopper will receive a Charm Square, courtesy of Fabri-Quilt.
Your Exclusive Pattern
A free, downloadable pattern is designed exclusively for Maine Quilt Shop Hop each year, and available for a limited time to shop-hoppers. In 2013 the pattern has been designed by Portland's own Auntie's Two.
Fun for All Ages
Children ages 7-17 can hop too, using a Children's Passport.
Not a Quilter? No Problem
Have someone driving you around? "Chauffeurs" can enter their own prize drawing for a Chauffer Prize!
Prizes? How about $15,000.00 worth in 2013!
Lots of prizes with different levels for visiting all shops or some shops! In 2012, the total prize tally exceeded $14,000.00!
Challenge Quilts & Voting
Every shop makes a quilt using common fabrics from that year's theme. As you travel to each shop, please take a look at their Challenge Quilt and vote for your favorite (the ballot is on the passport). All the challenge quilts will be available to view at Maine Quilts 2013 at the Augusta Civic Center.
