Cabin Fever Shop Hop Is Coming Up!

We’re getting the store ready for the 2013 Cabin Fever Shop Hop! Doesn’t it look cozy?! Do you have your passport? You don’t want to miss this one!


The theme is Remembering Michigan, so the progressive quilt design reflects some of our favorite outdoor themes about our state. Progressive quilt kits will cost $6 plus tax at each store.


Here are all the details. Stop in and get a passport and join in some cabin fever fun!

Cabin Fever Shop Hop
February 7, 8 & 9, 2013
Passports are $15
Proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer’s Research
The theme for the 2013 hop is
The Progressive Quilt will be a small sampler highlighting
Michigan’s beautiful and wondrous attributes
The blues and greens of this specially designed quilt will be shown with a computer picture while we are working on creating the quilt. The kits will only be $6.00 plus tax at each store and will provide pieced and appliqué patterns for the blocks. The shop hop pattern pack with the fabrics will include of course, the famous Michigan mitten, a sailboat, pine tree, moose, fish, bear, bird and a lighthouse. It’s a great quilt for the woodsman of the family, nature lovers or a Michigan college student.
We hope this quilt can be a fond remembrance of a Michigan vacation. Adding collectibles from your travels can be an exciting project for kids and adults. Optional pattern ideas will also be available using the beautiful blue/green base quilt in other ways.
