Our lives are a patchwork of happenings. Each event another patch in our quilt of life. Join me as I explore some of the "patches" of life.
Hopping for Quilting
No rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma in the Quilt stores, especially in April.
No, in April (April 24-May 3) we have the HOP THE RIVER SHOP HOP. An extravaganza of quilt store shopping that couldn’t be contained in one state.
The Hop includes five stores in Oklahoma and four in that state below the river (Texas). A complete list of the stores involved in the hop can be found at The Quilt n Bee.
Hopping from store to store, especially with friends is a great way to spend the day, weekend, or week.
Stores offer prizes and have gifts for their customers during hops. However, the best thing about a hop is seeing different quilts, almost like a quilt show on the road. Instead of the quilts traveling, the visitors are.
Each store has different fabrics and tools. Sharing, learning, visiting, and fabrics. This will be my first time to Hop the River and I’m looking forward to the adventure.
Have you ever participated in a shop Hop?
How often do you visit new stores?
How many stores would be your limit to visit in a day?
