We shop owners are having a shop hop meeting to plan next year. We are excited about getting it going.
In the meantime, we still have our Baskets of Hope Campaign going on. You guys have an opportunity to make some blocks for charity and have the opportunity to win some prizes so make sure to read the information below and get your blocks made and into your closest quilt shop by 6/30/2012.
The quilt shops in The Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop invite you to participate in our Baskets of Hope campaign in support of local charities.
Shops will be providing free patterns for 12" basket blocks during the 2012 Shop Hop, and we want you to use those patterns to make blocks for the Baskets of Hope campaign. One lucky person will also win a Janome Gem Gold sewing machine and Sew Steady table in a random drawing from all quilt block submissions.
Here's all you need to do:
- Collect the 12" block patterns from each shop during Shop Hop. Choose your favorite or use them all and make one or more blocks in your choice of the color categories. The more blocks you turn in the better your chances to win the prize, and the more quilts we can make for our charities!
- Make 12-1/2" (unfinished size) basket blocks in any of these color categories:
*Shades of Pink
- Submit your blocks to any shop in The Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop by June 30, 2012. Make as many blocks as you want - each block is an entry!
We will sponsor "sew days" later in the year at different quilt shops to sew the donated blocks into quilts that will donated to benefit Quilts of Valor/Wounded Warriors, Breast Cancer charities, and children's charities.
We all know quilters have such a giving nature and freely share their talents to support many causes. We hope you will join us in this campaign to give back to our communities.
