2013 Quilter’s Quest – November 8 – 17 – It Has Begun!

Each year a group of Local Quilt Shops in the DC/MD/Northern VA area put on a shop hop which is called Quilter’s Quest.

QQ2013

We have it on our calendar, and set aside time to visit the 10 shops over a 3-day period.  There are 3 shops in Northern Virginia (Great Falls, Warrenton and Winchester) and 7 shops in Maryland (Hagerstown, Gaithersburg, Mt. Airy, Catonsville, Towson, Annapolis and La Plata), so we have a lot of miles to cover.

I like to stay between 30 minutes to an hour to visit at each shop.  The shop owners/staff have invested many hours making samples, bundling kits, and even making snacks and I enjoy visiting with many of them.  I follow a number of them on Facebook and shop at the stores whenever I can during the year.

Many shops offer buses to take quilters around the shops, which takes 2 days.  We could possibly manage it in two days, but I don’t think it would be as much fun.

The shops feature special fabric, designed just for the Quest by Jinny Beyer (Jinny Beyer Studios, Great Falls).

There are daily drawings for prices and, if you get your ‘Passport’ stamped at all shops you get a tote bag and are eligible for some very nice prizes.

This is the 6th or 7th year we’ve followed the Quest.  We visited all the shops in 2007, 2011, 2012 and will get to them all this year. The other years we visited as many as we could.2013-QuiltersQuest-ReadytoGo
