Quilt Across the Dakotas Shop Hop

Quilt Dakota is going into the physical world -- August 1-September 15

The Covid-19 pandemic proved to be a challenge for many quilt shops across the country including those in North and South Dakota. In an effort to help shops find new ways to do business and connect with their customers, founder Emilee Masson created Quilt Dakota. Quilt Dakota started as a Facebook page promoting shops across North and South Dakota. Utilizing social media, shops went “live” and created a shopping experience. Quilt Dakota provided the schedule, prizes, and direction for these “virtual events.” Virtual events created revenue when shops were closed, or foot traffic was low. Customers loved that they could still “visit” their favorite quilt shop and found new shops to patronize. The events were immediately successful and the reach proved to be nationwide. Quilt Dakota has continued to come up with creative and innovative events for shops in the region such as “Block Party”, mini shop hops, demonstrations, Book Club, and The 12 Days of Christmas. For the first time ever, Quilt Dakota is going into the physical world! August 1-September 15, Quilt Dakota is hosting the “Quilting Across the Dakotas” shop hop. A shop hop is an organized event encouraging quilters/sewers to visit as many participating shops as possible. This in-person event is offering many opportunities:

● South/North Dakota themed fabric

● Quilting and sewing projects

● Prizes and giveaway

With over 40 shops participating, there are many opportunities to find new inspiration, meet new people, and win some amazing prizes donated by industry sponsors.
