new shop prize baskets

As part of our plan to amp up your favorite part of shop hop (the prizes of course!), this year each participating shop will contribute a prize basket worth $100! These will be in addition to the prize baskets provided by fabric and notions companies that we give away each year.

Let us put it this way for you:

Your chances of winning a prize at the 2015 Shop Hop just went up 70% over last year! 

We’re estimating that 1 in 20 people will win one of our prizes, and that doesn’t even include all the prizes given out in each shop! This is Amy from Stylish Fabrics drawing prizes last year. Will your name be on one of those passports drawn this year!?

Shop hoppers visiting all 12 shops will be eligible to win one of these $100 prize baskets. See the Prizes page for full details on everything we’re giving away this year.

After the Super Grand Prize comes the Grand Prize! This is a new option this year provided by Heritage Quilts & Fabric Shoppe.

The winner will be able to choose from these options of sewing furniture, and who doesn’t need a little extra space to hoard store fabric, right?!

  • modular furniture that can be arranged and personalized
  • choices include fabric cabinet, mat and hoop cabinet, three-drawer supply cabinet, compartment cabinet, thread cabinet, mobile carts, and activity table

no worries about landslide

Breaking news: The landslide in Jackson Hole should not affect your stop there to visit Stitch ‘n Time during the Shop Hop.  It is directly north of the shop on the north side of Broadway/Hwy 89/191/189.  It might impact the traffic on Broadway but if you follow the directions on the map, the route will not take you by the slide.  You can also get a nice view of the slide from Stitch ‘n Time’s parking lot!  

Don’t forget about our customized map to help you plan your route along the Shop Hop trail.
