WAIMEA — The 9th Annual Big Island Quilt Shop Hop will commence Feb. 1 and continue through the end of the month, featuring five different shops from Kona to Hilo and Waimea in between.

Topstitch at Waimea Center is the only North Hawaii participant. Other stores around the island include Fabric &Quilting Delights and Quilt Passions in Kona, and the Kilauea Kreations stores in Volcano and Hilo.

Traveling quilters can have passports stamped for a chance to win prizes, collect quilting patterns, and kits to create a custom “Tropical Flowers of Hawaii, a Stain Glass Quilt” quilt for 2017, while enjoying the company of fellow quilters islandwide.

Those who collect the stamp at all five shops will be eligible to win a cash grand prize. Other winners will receive fabric, quilt shop gift certificates and special in-store prizes at individual shops for a total of 11 winners. The five shops will also have exclusive quilt block patterns, one from each store, plus a customized bonus add-on to give the 2017 Shop Hop quilt some added zip.

The Hawaiian Quilt Show will also be a part of the 24th Annual Waimea Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival in Waimea on Feb. 4.

Maps and passports for the Quilt Shop Hop can be picked up any quilt shop on the route, and “shop-hoppers” can follow their own path or sign up for one of two bus tours.
