2016 Quilters' Quest Shop Hop

I've been trying to remember when we actually started participating in the Quilters' Quest Shop Hop,
it feels like we've been preparing for it forever. 
This year we started preparing in August for the event that will take 
place November 4 - November 13.

For those of you just joining me the Quilters' Quest, or Quest as we often call
 it at the shop, is a 10 day shop hop that travels throughout 
Northern Virginia and Maryland with 10 shops participating. 
With passport in hand quilters "hop" from shop to shop being 
entertained by all the shop owners and their employees. 
Each shop designs their own quilt and produces a pattern 
that is FREE to you . . . that's 10 FREE patterns . . . but WAIT . . . there's more . . .
we also have a scavenger hunt and when you collect
 all ten scavenger hunt cards you will have 
one more FREE quilt pattern . . . so if you are keeping 
count you are up to 11 FREE quilt patterns . . . but WAIT . . .  it's not to late to sign
 up for the newsletter and you can download 
another FREE block of the month pattern designed by Jinny Beyer. 

BUT WAIT . . . 
Yep there's more . . . When you hit the last shop along your journey 
you will turn in your passport and be eligible to win some 
rather impressive prizes. You could win a large box of Aurifil thread,
 a featherweight sewing machine, a fat quarter box from RJR fabrics and so much more.

BUT WAIT . . . 
Yep . . . there's more . . . 
I know what you are thinking . . . I don't want to drive that
 crazy beltway traffic. So here is the good news . . . we will be having
 a bus leave KAQ on Friday November 11 and Saturday November 12.
 The bus will take you to all 10 shops AND you don't have to worry
 about a thing, that's what our fun bus mom, Colleen, is for . . .  she will make
 sure your passport is stamped, your patterns are collected
 and lunch is served. But WAIT . . . there's more . . . This year
 we'll be offering the Quest Lottery . . . each quilter on the bus
 is eligible to win some real $$ and Colleen will draw a winning ticket
 before unloading the bus at each stop, just think, a chance to win
 some $$ to spend along your journey. Each quilter will receive 10 tickets, so 10 chances to win.
  I'm really starting to feel like the ShamWOW guy . . .
BUT WAIT . . .
there's more . . . 
Bring in a friend to sign up and you'll receive an 
extra lottery ticket . . . 10 friends . . . 10 extra tickets which would give you
 20 chances to WIN!
This offer is only good till October 10, so don't delay on signing up!
How do you sign up for our bus?
That's easy . . . you can come in, call 540-341-8890 or you can register online

So . . . what are you waiting for? Sign up Today!

Until Next Time
