Eastern Pennsylvania Shop Hop '09- First Day

Yesterday was a fun day of shop hopping! Me and my friend Heather went to four shops. During shop hop you can purchase a passport and then visit all the participating shops to get stamped and qualify for big prizes. Each shop sells a block and each shop puts it together differently. You are able to purchase a block at each shop. We decided not to buy the blocks and instead shoped other fabrics.
First we went to Easton to the "At Piece Quiltery". I forgot to take picture of their shop hop quilt. I bought a special fabric for a Christmas gift, I hope when is done the recipient will like it!

After that we were on the way to Stroudsburg, they are two shops there. Below is the "American Ribbon" shop hop sample.

Below is "Pocono Sew & Vac" quilt.

Then we were on the way to Effort to visit "Country Quiltery".

We thought we would have a hard time finding that store since the GPS couldn't find the address, but we found it easily! They served local apple cider outside the shop. I took a picture of Heather as she was taking a cup.

We had fun at all shops, we bought a lot of pretty fabrics! Here is a part of my loot! :)

Now, I am going to get busy sewing! Happy sewing to you, too!

But I can't go on any more shop
hops until I deplete some of my
stash. I have no more room!

We just had a shop-hop up here. They have one every year with 6 shops involved, but I've never taken part in one yet... one day.
