The Atlanta Area Yarn Shops are gearing up for our 8th annual Shop Hop to be held the week of Sept. 13 - 21, 2014.  This year we have 7 shops participating so there will be a grand prize of $700.00 in shop gift certificates plus all the other prizes donated by the local shops.  It's very easy.  Just purchase a passport, on sale Aug. 7th, for $1.00.  Then visit each shop within the dates listed and get your passport stamped with a $10.00 purchase.  If you get them all stamped, you are eligible for the grand prize plus all the other prizes.  If you don't get them all, you are still eligible for prizes.  Visit your local shop for more information.
This year we have added an additional chance for you to win prizes.  If you purchase $25.00 or more from any shop you can buy another passport and get an additional stamp.  You can earn additional stamps at the other shops to further your chances of winning prizes.  Each time you spend $25.00 or more at one of the 7 shops you can earn additional stamps on your passports.  This doubles your chances of being selected for prizes.
We also have a new wrinkle for the free pattern each shop hands out.  This year we asked Jenna of The Whole Nine Yarns to design a 7 part shawl for us.  You can pick up a part in each of the 7 shops when you get your passport stamped.  It is sort of like a puzzle that you complete.  And when you are done you have a beautiful shawl to cherish for years to come.
Join us for this fun week.  Gather your friends together and make it a party.  See you then.
