Welcome to the 20th anniversary year of the annual State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop! For more than two decades, independently owned quilt shops of Maine have collaborated by inviting their customers to spend the month of April "hopping" from shop to shop. Customers print out passports and have them stamped at each of the shops they visit. At the end of the month, hoppers send in their completed passports and are entered for a number of wonderful prizes. Prizes are donated by the local shops and the companies and manufacturers who make the fabrics, books, patterns and notions that we all love. From modest beginnings, the hop has grown from a handful of shops to 29 participating in 2020. In 2019, there were over 900 hoppers and many prizes valued at over $20,000!
2020 Shop Hop: the Shop Hop's
Twenty-nine shops across Maine invite you to hop in and shop between April 1 and April 30. Check out each shop's Challenge Quilt, get your passport stamped, and explore each shop's unique personality and offerings!
