What is Maine Quilt Shop Hop?
The State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop is an annual event in the State of Maine.   Participating Independent Quilt Shops invite "Shop Hoppers" to pick up a passport at any of the stores to start the hop, then visit as many stores as you can between April 1st and April 30.  Have your Passport stamped at each shop you visit. It's a great way to see beautiful Maine during glorious springtime, and have a chance at winning some of the up to $20,000.00 in prizes!  Bring the family, bring your friends.  Over the years the Shop Hop has grown, and each year we see more and more people, not only from Maine but from states throughout our great country.  It's a really fun event.  We look forward to seeing you in April!

A Charming Idea

Shop Hoppers receive a FREE 5" Charm square of fabrics chosen to coordinate with the hop theme fabrics.  Collect them all to use for the exclusive Shop Hop project, or a design of your own. 

Your Exclusive Pattern
A free, downloadable pattern is designed exclusively for The State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop each year, and available for a limited time to shop-hoppers. 

Fun for All Ages
Children ages 7-17 can hop too, using a Children's Passport. Children's passports are available at all participating shops and kids are invited to hop to all shops.

Not a Quilter? No Problem
Have someone driving you around? "Chauffeurs" can enter their own prize drawing for a Chauffer Prize! NEW for 2015 - Chauffeurs will have their own passports and be entered to win prizes of their own!

Prizes? How about $20,000 worth in 2015?!
Lots of prizes with different levels for visiting all shops or some shops!   In 2015, the total prize tally is already at $20,000.00

Challenge Quilts & Voting
Every shop makes a quilt using common fabrics from that year's theme.  As you travel to each shop, please take a look at their Challenge Quilt and vote for your favorite (the ballot is on the passport).  All the challenge quilts will be available to view at Maine Quilts at the Augusta Civic Center.
