Sponsored by the Common Thread Quilt Guild

Since the Common Thread Quilt Guild had to delay our Quilt Show until 2022, we wanted to do something still, even if we had to think “out of the box”. So, the Quilt show team came up with the idea of a ” Virtual shop hop.”

Have fun, stay safe!

Hello Everyone,

I don’t know about you, but I am still suffering a bit of “Quilt Show Cancellation Let Down”. We’ve been sharing photos of quilts in a virtual quilt show, but I was also looking forward to some shopping in our merchant mall at the quilt show. 

We’ve all been busting our stashes over the last few weeks, so it may be time to replenish your stock of fabric, patterns, and notions? 

So – I am thrilled to announce that we will have our first ever Virtual Quilt Shop Hop! And this isn’t just a few hours of shopping,this is 3 DAYS of quilt shop shopping. We have 14 amazing shops participating in this event with us, which will start Friday, May 1st and wrap up Sunday, May 3rd.

Your 2020 Virtual Shop Hop Shops are:

Apple Hill Quilting/Village Quilt Shoppe
Auntie Em’s Scrapbooking & Quilting
Bytowne Threads
Happy Wife Quilting
Kallisti Quilts
Kawartha Quilting and Sewing
Mad Moody Quilting Fabrics
Paisley’s Quilt Shop
Quilters Barn and Gifts
Quilty Pleasures
Sew Inspired
Taylor Sewing Centre
Textile Traditions
The Pickle Dish

How will the event unfold? You’ll get an email shortly before the Shop Hop starts with information from each shop – Where to shop online, if they’re offering a discount code, how to reach them, etc… We’ll also be posting the information to our Guild’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/commonthreadquiltguild/ So be sure to “like & follow” our page to get all the latest details & up-to-the-minute information. In the meantime, I encourage you to visit these shops’ websites, Facebook, Instagram, etc… and start looking at the great supplies they have in stock.  

Remember this is a virtual online event – No shopping in person!! Although quilters may think these shops are an essential service, they don’t quite qualify for the official definition, so let’s keep everyone safe.

Happy Shopping!
