5th Annual Quilt Shop Hop, February 1-16, 2013. This island-wide expedition for quilters and quilt-lovers explores eight different quilt shops, each with their own personality. Celebrate one of Hawaii’s favorite pastimes, on your own or with a busload of friends--Shop Hop bus tours run from Kona to Waimea’s Cherry Blossom Festival and Quilt Show Feb. 2, Kona to Hilo Feb. 9 and Hilo to Kona Feb. 16. This year’s event includes a new “Big Island” original design fabric, only available at the Shop Hop stops—where you can have your “passport” stamped to be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing, and purchase custom Hawaii-theme quilting blocks for the 2013 one-of-a-kind memory quilt.
