They're here! The long-awaited, much-anticipated All Carolinas Shop Hop Magazines are here! They are MARVELOUS! This beautiful publication was well worth the wait! It is FULL of free patterns, your All Carolinas Shop Hop Passport, lots of beautiful pictures, ads from all of the participating shops that includes contact information, and MUCH more! Here is a FAQ from Jen, one of the organizers of the hop, provided on Facebook.
Q: What will I be able to find in the magazine?
A: The magazine will include your passport for your Great Sewing Adventure Across The Carolinas. You will also find Regional Maps helping you plan your route as well as special Shop Hop store hours. You will find free patterns from local designers featuring the exclusive 2021 All Carolinas Shop Hop fabric line with beautiful photography showcasing their work. Don’t forget to peek at the list of longarm and retreat center resources because you’ll want them to help you finish your projects!! Industry related and fun articles are always a fan favorite and can be found as you browse the pages. The magazine will serve as a directory of stores all across the state and can be used YEAR ROUND as you are out meandering the roads of The Carolinas. (In fact, many of our participants purchase TWO copies - one for their sewing room and one for their car!) Did I mention prizes??? They will all be listed in the magazine as well.
Q: Besides the above, what other benefits does purchasing the magazine have?
A: ALL proceeds of the magazines go DIRECTLY to your local quilt shops. The passion behind our Shop Hop program is ensuring that brick and mortar shops thrive keeping this industry alive for sewing enthusiasts for generations to come. There is nothing quite the same as walking into a shop and being able to touch, see and even smell the fabric. We want our shops to earn back the investment they are putting into offering this adventure to you.
Q: When will magazines be available?
A: They were drop shipped from Wisconsin and hit our office in Iowa yesterday. They should hit your stores within a day or two. Maybe even today!!!!
Q: How do I get my hands on a copy (or two ;))
A: Magazines will be available at ALL participating stores! We recommend you call to make sure before heading out but then hop in your car and head directly to your local/favorite quilting store and grab your magazine!!!! The wait is finally over!!!!
Q: I am a planner! What if I am traveling in from out of state and can't make it to a local shop prior to the kick off of the event?
A: We've got you covered! Many of our shops will be happy to sell them online or mail you a copy. You will be able to find the FULL LIST of all participating shops on the All Carolinas Shop Hop.
Come by the shop to pick up your copy! We will also be glad to mail you a magazine. Call us at 828-349-8912 and we will get your magazine on the way to YOU!
