Hoppin Bobbin E-News



I have been having so much fun with Row by Row Experience!  We have met some great ladies, made some new friends and listened to the stories about the other shops that they have visited.  Remember this runs through September 2, so you still have time to get in on the fun!  What a fun option to add to any of your summer travel plans!  I always plan my trips by where the quilt shops are!  Come in to get your FREE Pattern and we also have our row kitted and available for purchase. And....... while several shops have a winner with a finished, quilted, bound and labeled quilt............... we still have a set of 25 fat quarters to give away for the first finished quilt brought in to Hoppin Bobbin!  Will it be you?
