Getting Ready for Shop Hop

The Greater Atlanta Shop Hop is coming the last week of March and we are starting to get ready for it.  We are all going to make a new apron to wear using the Shop Hop fabric.  I plan on making another of “My Neighbors Apron” that I made for Christmas.  Here is the fabric I am going to use.  Everyone at the shop is making their own apron so they will all be different but will feature the shop hop fabric.

The black fabric is the shop hop fabric and has all kinds of Georgia things on it.  You can see the Fabulous Fox Theatre at the bottom center, the Georgia Aquarium in the middle, Masters golf at the top, Centeninnel Olympic park under the rick rack and the soon to be build Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum near the center.  We are pre-selling the fabric to be picked up at shop hop but were allowed to have enough of it now to make the aprons.

I am teaching the fifth class of Beginning Machine Piecing today – flying geese.



  1. That is such a fun idea to all wear different aprons!

  2. we visited Atlanta a few years ago when I attended a conference there. A big bonus was being able to attend your big show in mid-Sept. We really enjoyed sitting in the Olympic Park at the end of each day, watching the kids play in the fountain area and seeing so many families using the space. Anyhow, it would be wonderful to be able to access some fabric with those themes - would it be possible to order some from your shop. I live in Canada.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
