Big quilting week-end!

Mark your calendars, gather your friends, pack your bags and plan a quilting road trip for Thursday - Saturday, September 11 - 13, because there are three BIG quilting events happening all on the same week-end in our area!

For a hauntingly fun Shop Hop, visit Marietta for a tour of three great quilt shops.  This year's theme is Halloween Treats!, and Little Quilts, Red Hen, and Tiny Stitches will all be featuring "spellbinding" quilts and projects for your fall inspiration.  Free patterns will be available at all the shops as well as many fun demos.  Visit all three shops and be entered to win one of these exceptional prizes:
  • 1st Place Prize is a Silhouette Cameo Cutter
  • 2nd Place Prize is a $50 Gift Certificate from each shop
  • 3rd Place Prize is 20 fat quarters at each shop
During the Shop Hop, all three shops will have extended hours, 9:30am-6pm, so come early and stay late for this spooktacular event!

While you're in Marietta, drive over to the Cobb Galleria Centre for the "Quilting Live!" quilt show and expo featuring many beautiful quilts along with quilting classes, demonstrations, and vendors. Click here to get more information on this great show.

Final stop of your quilting week-end needs to be the new AQS Quilt Show in Chattanooga!  You won't want to miss this show of over 500 quilts including the incredible AQS contest quilts. Lots of workshops with world-class instructors, lectures and a huge vending area will round out the week-end.  Click here for more information on beautiful Chattanooga and its first-ever AQS show.

It's going to be an action-packed three days, so wear your most comfortable shoes and prepare for an exciting quilting week-end. The dates for all three events are the same - three BIG events in three days! Mark your calendars for Thursday - Saturday, September 11 - 13.
