How It Works

On The Trail is a shop hop in which quilt shops participate in festivities and prize drawings for visitors during a set period. During that time, these shops are exciting places to visit. Each shop designs a free original pattern that will be on display and given to shop hop participants. Most shops also have sales, games, and additional prizes. The shops span a circular route of about 600 miles throughout Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah. To take part, just purchase a passport at any  of the participating shops any time after mid-March, and have it stamped at each shop you visit before the last day of Shop Hop.

THEME:
2020 theme: Blooms on the Trail! Each shop has designed an original sewing project pattern that will be debuted on the first day of Shop Hop and available for free to shop hop participants.

    Can I buy a passport on Friday, the 25th? I don’t live near any of the shops and can’t make it up until I start the shop hop itself.
