Summer 2017 is here, and that means it's time for the Northern Illinois Shop Hop and The Row by Row Experience! 

Northern Illinois Quilt Shop Hop

This three month long Hop begins on June 1 and ends on August 31.  This year, 29 shops from northern Illinois are participating, and Hop passports are available at each shop. If you get your passports stamped in all 29 shops, you are eligible for the Grand Prize of a Quilting Cruise for you and a friend plus $700 towards travel and expenses. First Prize is a Baby Lock Katherine sewing machine.

The Hop is divided into three regions. The Quilter’s Trunk is in Region 2. If you get stamps from all shops in a region, you are eligible for a prize of a bundle of $50 gift certificates from all shops in that region.

Lastly, all Hop participants who get their passport stamped at The Quilter’s Trunk will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate from us!

And, the day you get your passport stamped at a participating shop, you will receive a 15% discount on all regular priced merchandise.  Some exceptions may apply – see shop for details.

While you are in the shop, pick up a kit for our Mug Rug featuring the NIQSH logo block - no two are alike!


Row by Row Experience

2017 Theme: On The Go

Row by Row runs from June 21 through September 5. TQT is proud to call Chicago home. We love having visitors from far and near experience what we have built in our corner of the world.  So, hitch your glamper to your elephant and head Off to The Trunk!
