This spring, a new quilt shop hop’s coming to town! Presenting the Forgotten Shops Hop, this hop features nine quilt stores in Central Illinois. These shops are normally outside the geographic boundaries of most hops in South Central Illinois, so we decided to get together to create one of our own!
The quilt theme for this year is Forgotten Blocks, using fabrics and block patterns from the 1880’s-1900’s. Each shop will have a 12” quilt block kit for purchase for $5, including tax. Each shop will also have a finishing kit available. This means you get lots of options to choose from!
Pictures of the finished quilts will be posted on the Facebook pages of Farmland Quilting & Embroidery, Main Street Quilt Company, Mini Mall Quilt Shop, The Wooden Spool, and Times Square Sewing Complex.
Hours: On Friday, April 11 & 18, all shops will be open from 9a-7p. On Saturday, April 12 & 19, all shops will be open from 9a-3p. The rest of the week, all shops will maintain their normal hours.
Visit all 9 shops to qualify for the following prizes:
Grand Prize: 90 fat quarters
2nd Prize: $100 gift card*
3rd Prize: $50 gift card*
*You can use these gift cards at any of the participating shops in the hop.
Each shop will also have a $25 gift certificate to give away. You can only spend this gift certificate at that shop.
You can purchase passports* for the hop from any of the participating shops. You can purchase these ahead of time or at the first shop you visit.
