Save the Date: All Mid-Atlantic Shop Hop (July 1 - August 31, 2024)

Shop Hop Inc creates Great Sewing Adventures™ across the country. We bring together new and familiar faces, to new and familiar places. Our events help brick and mortar quilting and sewing stores thrive – ensuring passion for the sewing arts remains ignited for generations to come.

For all of our shop hop events, we divide the area into regions. When the mapping is complete, we will typically have anywhere from 5-7 different regions assigned. Many things are taken into considerations when deciding how to group the stores:

  • Size of the territory
  • Number of participating shops
  • Geographical location of the stores
  • Major state highways/interstates

We do try to keep things as even as possible but you will occasionally see that some regions have more stores than others. This is simply because of their proximity to each other. The regions with fewer stores typically have a bit more drive time in between stops. BUT, what we have learned over the years of managing shop hops is that ANYWAY YOU SLICE IT - every region gets a similar amount of traffic. AND the majority of shop hoppers will complete MULTIPLE regions (if not the ENTIRE event!) Some people start with a region because there are fewer stores to visit and they like some good road time space in between. Some people start with a region because stores are closer together. Everyone finds their own way that is best for them during the shop hop tour.

Now, WHY do we do this? We want everyone to look at a the shop hop in manageable chunks. I mean, we know that everyone WANTS to complete the ENTIRE hop but most of the time, that is just not a realistic expectation. If we give you smaller, bite-sized pieces it will help give you a better plan to accomplish a goal. AND, we assign prizes based on REGIONS so if prizes motivate you, complete a region and you will be entered for a chance to win the "big ticket" items. (MORE ON PRIZES COMING SOON!) The more regions you complete, the more entries you receive. Now who is ready to hop?
