Shop Hop by the Bay is a group of quilt shops who work together to promote our love of quilting and sewing. We work to bring our love of fabric to our customers and to promote quilting and sewing to those who have never ventured into this creative process. We are passionate about what we do and celebrate this passion with our annual Shop Hop by the Bay!
Why Shop Hop?
Quilting is a passion and a shop hop exposes you to a wide variety of tastes, forms and styles. You and your friends can take this opportunity to visit shops you might not normally visit. Each shop has its own personality and each one carries a different assortment of fabrics, notions, patterns, and gifts.
In what other business would you find would-be competitors joining together to promote their unique wares? We do this to showcase our establishments and to say Thank You to our loyal customers for your support, friendship, and for sharing your love of quilting!
How does it work?
It's so simple! Just pick up your official Shop Hop Passport at the first shop you visit. Tour the stores, have your passport stamped and pick up your free pattern and fabric piece at each shop. You can read more on our Rules page.
Afraid you'll get lost?
Don't worry! We have a printed flyer we do each year which contains a map guiding you to each of the participating shops.
Visit ALL shops and you will be entered into a drawing for special prizes. What if you don't finish and you have an incomplete passport? Turn it in anyway! Passports with 7 or more stamps turned in to any participating shop by the last day of the event will be eligible to win a second chance gift basket. You can read more on the Rules page.
