HOTFLASH!

ALL ILLINOIS SHOP HOP BUS HOP

On Saturday August 6, QGS will join 3 other Shops for a Bus Shop Hop to help you get to at least 4 Shops participating in this new Shop Hop. There are lots of Illinois Shops participating in the All Illinois Shop Hop, but these are the Shops participating in this one day event:

The Sewing Studio, Hudson, IL
The Quilt Corner, Morton, IL
Country at Heart, Rock Falls, IL
Quilter’s General Store, Rockford, IL

The cost of the Bus Hop is $75 which includes your transportation, lunch & snacks and you very own Illinois Shop Hop magazine & passport. The bus will leave Rockford at 8 am and return at approximately 5:30 pm which leaves you time to shop at QGS & get your passport stamped.

We are looking forward to this new Shop Hop and hope you will join us on our Bus for part of the hop. Call the Shop to reserve your spot!
