Our Shop Hop included a Bangor's newest quilt store, The Cotton Cupboard Quilt Shop, that was celebrating its Grand Opening.  Shirley, Pat, Liz, and Theresa taking chances on the many door prizes

Members didn't mind (too much) standing in lines to buy quilting supplies at several of our stops
Sadly, we ran out of time and didn't make it to Stitches Quilt Shop in Newport.  A super shop, we'll definitely go there next year.

In addition to these great stores, we also visited JoAnn Fabrics in Bangor and one of our favorite shops,
The Fabric Garden, in Madison; lunch at Governor's in Orono and dinner at the Olive Garden in Bangor completed our day.
