Charming Quilt Shop Tour planned
CANFIELD - The fourth annual Charming Quilt Shop Tour from Aug. 21 through Aug. 30 will be held at eight sewing and quilting stores in northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania.
"Hoppers," as the shoppers are called, have 10 days to visit all eight quilt stores. They will receive free gifts and treats just for walking through the door of each of the stores. A portion of their passport or entrance fee into the tour goes to help a local charity in each shop's community.
"The Charming Shop Hop is a great event for quilters," said Betty Aberson, from Village Quilts in Canfield. "Each shop has its own personality and shop hops provide a way to showcase each of our stores. And everyone who completes the hop is eligible for some wonderful prizes."
In the Charming Shop Hop Tour, shoppers buy a passport for $3 at any of the eight participating stores and receive a free tote bag for joining the tour. There is a limited supply of the special tote bags offered on a first-come basis. Each store makes a donation to a charity in their community from the proceeds of the passport sale. Passports are available now.
At each shop during the 10 days of the tour, shoppers receive a free quilt block pattern. Each shop makes up their quilt block into a project that will be unveiled the first day of the tour. In addition, each participant receives free fabric squares, a surprise treat and opportunities to win many giveaways.
In addition to Village Quilts in Canfield, the other participating shops include: Cottonpickers of Chardon; Craft Cupboard of Middlefield; Just Quilt It of Champion; Megen's Quilt Parlor of Albion; Olive Grace Studios of Fowler; Quilter's Fancy of Cortland and Tiny Stitches of Middlefield.
