Our 12th Annual "Romancing Eastern North Carolina Shop Hop" is just a little over a week away. The dates are Wednesday, February 8 through Saturday, February 11. We are busy making final preparations. A custom batik has been created again this year - designed by Lori Richardson of Cotton Fields Quilt Shop and produced by Majestic Batiks of Corvallis, Oregon. The shop hop fabric is a SECRET until the first day of the hop! Four of the shops will be displaying quilts made with the special fabric. Our theme this year is "Let's Get Organized". All of the shops will have free patterns for organizational items you can make (one per store). PRIZES are always important! To enter the prize drawing, shoppers must visit each of the six participating shops and have their passports stamped. This year our grand prize is a Foldaway Big Board AND an Oliso Iron.
After we draw for the grand prize, we will draw for the six gift baskets, one from each shop, value over $200. The goodies are packed into a small oval Ghana basket like those you've seen at Cotton Fields in the past. Here's a BEFORE picture of all the loot:
And, here's AFTER:
We owe a lot of thanks to companies who have made generous donations, including Island Batik, P&B Textiles, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Windham Fabrics, Brewer Sewing and Quilting Supplies, and Foust Textiles.
THAT'S NOT ALL!
Then we'll draw for $50 gift certificates, one from each shop. Each shop will also have daily drawings for smaller gift bags. That's 37 prizes in all. We hope you'll come see us.
