A road trip for quilters and fabric fanatics, the 11th annual Big Island Quilt Shop Hop revs up Feb. 1-28, featuring five different shops from Kona to Hilo, and points in between.
Traveling quilters can have passports stamped for a chance to win prizes, to collect quilting patterns and kits to create a custom “Hawaiian Hospitality” pieced batik pineapple quilt for 2019, and enjoy the company of fellow quilters island-wide.
Each shop will award a grand prize, second place and third place prizes for those who visit and get passports stamped at all five shops, for a total of 15 winners. Winners will receive fabric, quilt shop gift certificates and more—with special in-store prizes at individual shops.
The five shops will also have exclusive quilt block patterns, from each store, plus an optional customized different finishing kit at each shop for the 2019 Shop Hop quilt.
Maps and passports can be picked up any quilt shop on the route, and “shop-hoppers” can follow their own path.
