Mountain Quilt Quest Shophop

Okay everyone - it's getting closer to the shophop and all the shops are getting busy and trying to come up with "creative" ideas for this years fabric. We decided to design our own fabric again this year - and have chosen Hoffman Fabrics to print it. It is sure to be one of those fabrics that everyone will want a few yards of!! The name of the fabric is "Stars Across West Virginia" and has endless possibilities.

With the gas prices on the rise again, we have decided to run a bus to all 12 shops. My bus will start here - or actually in Liberty Square at Teays Valley and will be staying overnight in Morgantown. The bus will fill fast so I am encouraging everyone to get their checks to me as soon as possible. The checks should be made to
Mountain Quilt Quest - and mailed to me at QBP, 2943 Putnam Ave., Hurricane, WV 25526

There will also be a bus starting in Morgantown - we will post their itineary as soon as we get it. Below is a tentative itineary -

Mountain Quilt Quest
Southern Bus Trip Itinerary
June 10-11, 2011
Cost: $150.00

The fee for this trip covers your travel as well as your stay at the Hampton Inn in Morgantown. The first day you will need to pack yourself a lunch as we will not be able to make a lunch stop due to time constraints. I will provide water that will be in a cooler on the back of the bus. Many of the shops do have treats and refreshments prepared for you also. The Hampton Inn offers coffee pots, hairdryers, etc. for your convenience. Don’t forget to take advantage of the hot breakfast before departing on Saturday. (We need energy for all this shopping!!!) On Saturday, we will have boxed lunches available to eat while we are travelling between shops.
Feel free to bring homemade snacks for yourself – or to pass around to your fellow quilters 
