Heartland Quilters of the Eastern Shore will host its 7th Annual One Stop Shop Hop on Thursday, August 6, 2015 at the Denton Volunteer Firehouse, located in downtown Denton, Maryland. Shopping hours will be 2pm – 8pm. There is a nominal admission fee of $3, which includes an entry ticket for fantastic door prizes, provided by our vendors. Inside the firehouse you will find twenty-five vendors from the Mid-Atlantic region, including quilt and fabric shops, crafters, a long arm dealer, raffle quilts, door prizes and so much more!
Just blocks away from the firehouse, there is an antique quilt display located at Caroline County’s Rural Life Museum where you will be able to step back in time to enjoy a journey of quiltmaking! Featured from the collection of Heartland Quilt Guild members will be quilts from as early as 1840 to the red/green applique quilts of the 1860’s to the depression era quilts of the 1930’s. There will also be featured a series of quilt tops which were “works in progress”. Learn the types of stitches and stories that quilters used to render these old but beautiful quilted treasures. Quilts on display 7/29 thru 8/31.
Then, be sure to visit the Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) to view “A Showcase of Heartland Talent”. This quilt exhibit features 25 quilts that have been made by members of the Heartland Quilt Guild of the Eastern Shore. In one room there will be patriotic quilts to honor those who have served our country. The second room will feature a spring/summer theme that is sure to inspire! Quilts featured at FACES from 6/22 thru 8/8.
