What is a Shop Hop?
While each event is individually planned, ours is a visit of 6 shops most of which are along highway 89 and one shop on highway 10 in Ontario Canada This gives us a flying geese formation and the reason we are the Goose on the Loose Shop Hop. At each shop your passport is stamped after you see what that particular shop specializes in.
Why would I go to a shop hop?
A shop hop inspires the artist in you. It is a great time to visit shops that you may not get to on a regular basis and see the quilts they are creating.
The shops involved have worked hard to bring you an abundance of prizes and stock the most interesting fabrics that they can. What could possibly be better? Any of us would love to be a winner! Plus at each of the 6 locations there will be something demonstrated. Check the Prizes page for updates on this years prizes.
How do I shop hop?
We hope you will devote a day at least to the experience and plan a route that will work for you. To assist you with that we have included our shop links to this site and you can plan your weekend. There are links to contact all of the shops included and if you require any further information we hope you will contact the shops directly.
How will I know if I won a prize?
The draw will take place the Monday following the shop hop and all winners will be notified by phone. Their names will be available on the website later that week.
A special thank you to our supporters and sponsors.
