Shop Hopping, road tripping and fun!

Sewing and quilting classes, machine embroidery classes Sheboyan county, plymouth, south east wisconsinWe do a thing called “shop hopping”. A group of stores will pick a weekend and offer prizes, patterns, discounts and fun to shoppers who visit all participating shops during the “hop”. Since many quilt shops are in small towns that have interesting restaurants, coffee shops, vintage and resale shops they make a great day trip destination.

Over the past few years sewing enthusiasts have watched the number of fabric stores decrease, along with the quality and variety of fabric choices and class opportunities. But all of these things are still available at your local independent fabric and quilting shops.
