Plans are underway for this years edition of the Harvest Hop. As usual the Shop Hop event will take place the last weekend in September. This year the dates work out to be Thursday, September 26, Friday the 27th and Saturday, September 28. In addition to our shop there will be 5 other shops participating, Fabric Fusion, Finely Quilted, Lethbridge Sewing Center, Sewing Lane, and Village Quilts.
Early Registration has begun and will continue until September 7. To register stop in at any of the 6 shops and let them know you would like to sign up for the Harvest Hop. Once you have registered (which is free by the way) you will receive your passport for the hop.
When the dates of the Harvest Hop arrive you will need to take your Passport to each oft the 6 stores, and spend a minimum of $5. This purchase will earn you a stamp on your passport. The last store that you shop at will keep your passport and at the end of the weekend, all the shops will get together and we will draw some prize winners.
Up for grabs this year is a grand prize of a sewing machine, I haven't heard what model yet but will post a photo to Facebook when I do, a large gift basket from each store (ours is valued at $400) and hundreds of door prizes.
We have sent out requests to nearly all of our Fabric and Notion Distributors asking them to sponsor the event and some boxes of goodies have already begun to arrive, they are being very generous this year! Below is a photo of all the prizes our shop had for last years Harvest Hop, lots of fabric bundles and precuts, some patterns, some bag hardware kits, cutting mats, notion sets and more.
This happens to be a long weekend, so we will be closed on Monday.
Do you have any fun plans? It is my sons birthday on Tuesday and so I will be doing some birthday gift shopping, party planning, and cupcake baking, and hopefully get in some time at my parents lake as well.
