Here is a unique way to enjoy the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, created just for quilters! Mark your calendars and plan to visit 13 wonderful quilt shops in eastern Oregon and eastern Washington, from September 25 through October 5, 2014. The fun-filled new shop hop is called QUILTING ON THE DRY SIDE! These dates provide two full weekends to complete the hop. “Hop” from shop-to-shop and pick up your FREE fat quarter at each shop, all while finding plenty of fabric and quilting goodies!
Other freebies include free tote bags to the first 500 hoppers and refreshments at every shop. Get your free passport (which will be available at the first shop you visit), stamped at each shop to be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing, a JANOME 3160 QDC sewing machine valued at approximately $1,000! Visit your local quilt shop for details!
