AQG Spring Shop Hop Planned for April 6, 2013
Our new AQG Program Coordinator Jeanne L. has organized a Spring Shop Hop for us on April 6, 2013. We will be carpooling from the Malone Adult Center (leave the Adult Center at 7:30AM sharp) and travel to several quilt shoops in Vermont along the Canadian border. The shops on our list are:
Quilters Quisine, Newport, VT
Country Fabrics, Newport Center, VT
Country Time Vermont, Derby, VT.
If we have time, we will also go to Sewing in Love Fabirc Shop in Lyndonville, VT. We may be a little past closing time (5:30PM) getting to this shop, however, Jeanne has arranged with the shop owner to extend her shop hours on April 6 just for us!
We will stop for meals at restaurants along the way. There is no charge for this shop hop. You pay for your own purchases and your meals. Since we are carpooling, it is customary for the passengers to share in the gas expenses for the day and to arrange this with your driver.
Please advise Jeanne L. at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-483-0010 if you would like to participate. Also, since we are carpooling, we will need cars and drivers. Also let Jeanne know if you are willing to use your car and drive that day; and let her know how many passengers you can take with you.
