Big Quilting Weekend

Ready, Set, Go!  The big quilting week-end we've all been waiting for is almost here.  Get your itineraries out, program your GPS and hit the road for fun this week-end, Thursday - Saturday, September 11 - 13.

First stop is Marietta and the Sweet Home Marietta "Halloween Treats!" Shop Hop.

Spellbinding quilts and projects from three great quilt shops - Little Quilts, Red Hen, and Tiny Stitches.  Free patterns, demos, and prizes for a hauntingly good time.  At each shop, pick up a section of a  pattern for a great fall wall hanging, "Starlight in the Pumpkin Patch" - stop at all three shops to get the complete pattern!  The shops have extended hours, 9:30am - 6pm, during the Shop Hop so plan to come early and stay late for this spooktacular event!

  • Stop at each shop to pick up a Goodie Bag - I don't want to give away any secrets, but our bag will include our part of the "Starlight in the Pumpkin Patch" directions, a kit for making an easy pumpkin pin, and a special coupon.
  • Pick up a Passport at the first shop you visit.  Get it stamped at all three shops and be eligible to enter the drawing to win great prizes.
  • Fill out an entry at each shop and be eligible to win even more prizes! 

 While you're in Marietta, swing by the Cobb Galleria Centre for the  "Quilting Live!" Quilt Show and Expo.  Lots of beautiful quilts in the show and a wide variety of classes and vendors make this a popular show.

Finally, don't forget the first-ever AQS Quilt Show in Chattanooga.  Over 500 quilts in the show, lots of classes with world-class teachers, and a huge vending area - a show you won't want to miss!  

So, put on your most comfortable shoes and hit the road running for a great quilting week-end!  All three events are on the same three days, Thursday - Saturday, September 11 - 13.  Don't miss any of them!
