    The passports went on sale today. I'm going to try and pick mine up tomorrow after work. I live at the south end of Scottsdale and was wondering if there was anyone near me that is planning on doing the shop hop that would like to meet up and go together. I've never done one before and I would love to meet others from the board.

    I am planning on going. I was thinking about the passports last week and was going to check what date they came out. Thanks for answering that question for me.....

    I am in Sun City so I am sure that we can try and set up a time to meet. Do you have any days off during the week? I am home on Wednesdays and Fridays. I will hit the east stores on one of these days, especially the one way out in East Mesa.

    I've been trying to find a list of the store in the hop but haven't found it yet. I still have to go get my passport. I've been stuck at home with migraines.

    Interesting. Where we got our passports they were each in a baggie with the listing of stores and a map, as well as the charm.

    If you ever need a new map 3 Dudes always have them.

    For those familiar with our shops, note that The Cutting Edge has a new address.

    Too bad we don't have QB T-shirts to wear so we can recognize each other while we are on the shop hop.

    Any ideas for something simple and inexpensive to help us identify each other?

    I live in Phx and have not heard of most of those shops.
    Where are they?
    35th Ave Sew and Vac is one of my favorites but Mulqueens has the best prices.
    Dont care for the Bernina shop out on Bell RD.
    Love the idea of quilting board tee shirts.

    There should be a map in The Country Registrar.

    If not, 3 Dudes Quilting has lots of maps ... even of some stores not on the hop. 3 Dudes is off I-10 at Elliot Road. Head west when you get off onto Elliot then take the first stoplight and turn South/left and it is in the shopping center to your right. You'll see the sign as it is about the 3rd or 4th place on your left when you turn in from the crossroad: S. 51st St.

    If you need more help PM me. I have it all from doing publicity for quilt camps.

    I picked up my passport at 3 Dudes this past Saturday. I brought my DH with me as he has never been there before and I had only be once. It is a small shop, but very friendly. My DH can't stand or walk for long and it was nice for him to be able to sit down while I shopped and I could show him everything that I was looking at. They also provide beverages and fresh made cookies while you are there.

    Darn even the yearly quilt show has moved to that side of the valley.
    Im to old to learn to drive in a different city, traffic over there is awful, bad enough here that I only go out during the week and early before lunch hour.
    Thanks for the info anyway.
