Future Northwoods Quilting and Art Events

Future Quilting and Art Events:  Sorry the delay, I will try and get these dates updated.

Snowman Shuffle 2019 dates are to be determined!!!  Of the stores which participated last year, there have been some major changes.    Cheri's Fabric to Quilt will be closed end of October and reopening in the Spring - Cheri's Fabric to Quilt, Fabric Patch, Around the Block Quilt Shop will be closing in the fall of 2018  Around the Block Quilt Shop, Elizabeth's Woolery (13th Colony), River's Edge Antiques and Quilt Loft and Quilt Elements.  So with the changes in two of the store we will see if they add new stores or if they shop hop will continue as previously. See the quilting links for the info on the various stores.  I have been to all of these stores and each carry different quilt fabric, notions, patterns, inspiration!  What started as a stop has become a visit with a quilting friend and fellow artist.  I hope you are able to make it to the shop hop for a great quilting friend event.
