PLEASE NOTE! The passports in the Shop Hop Newspaper that you may have picked up at your local shop are NOT valid! You must have a full page passport. Print one from the website! They are available on the "printables" page and some shops have printed copies available. Thanks!
Maine Quilt Shop Hop is an annual event in the State of Maine. Participating Independent Quilt Shops invite "Shop Hoppers" to pick up a passport at any of the stores to start the hop, then visit as many stores as you can between April 1st and April 30. You have your Passport stamped at each shop you visit. It's a great way to see beautiful Maine during glorious springtime, and have a chance at winning some of the up to $15,000.00 in prizes! Bring the family, bring your friends. Over the years the Shop Hop has grown, and each year we see more and more people, not only from Maine but from states throughout our great country. It's a really fun event. We look forward to seeing you in April!
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. Children's passports are available at all participating shops and kids are invited to hop to all shops.
Not a Quilter? No Problem Have someone driving you around? "Chauffeurs" can enter their own prize drawing for a Chauffer Prize! Who couldn't use a $100 gas card? That's the chauffeur's 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.
