virtual shop hop promoSQG is Hosting a VIRTUAL SHOP-HOP………..Starts at 7pm on Zoom


During our regular meeting time for June, we have invited FOUR Quilt Shops to present items for sale for 15 minutes each, offering exclusive event items and door prizes.  And, we have an additional  FIVE BONUS Quilt Shops offering exclusive event offers and door prizes too!!   Viewers will watch and take notes on anything they would like to purchase by contacting the Shop after the event.  We’re excited to help the Quilt Shops who supported our Star Quilters Guild Quilt Show last year!  They need our encouragement and support.

COST:  $0.00


Send an email to  stating that you want a ‘virtual ticket” for the Shop-Hop.  SQGuild members have first priority until Tuesday May 26th to reserve a ‘virtual ticket’ to the event.   If you are one of the first 100 requests, you will receive a confirmation email with important SQG Virtual Shop-Hop information including how to get into the event and a shopping list for each of the participating shops.   Starting May 27th, you may invite your friends to RSVP for the SQG Virtual Shop-Hop just like you did.  We will also extend invites to other Guilds and the quilt shops will extend invites to their customers to reserve a ‘virtual ticket’.  A maximum of 100 people can attend this event, so a waiting list could possibly be created for openings that might become available.


All SQG members will still receive ‘exclusive offers’ given to ‘virtual ticket’ holders from the Shops.  But, will unfortunately miss out on live virtual offers and door prize opportunities.


  • Each Shop will be introduced and have 15 minutes to share an item or items they plan to feature.  The BONUS Shops will be sharing a photo of sale items for you to view and then their exclusive event offer.    After the completion of the Shop-Hop, you may contact any shop directly with questions or orders regarding the items they showed.
  • Each Shop will present items with a sign saying an item name, item #, size if applicable and price.  You can take your own notes on a provided shopping sheet included with your Virtual SQG Shop-Hop Ticket confirmation email.  The shopping sheets will contain exclusive offers and contact information for each participating Shop.
  • At the end of the evening, we will show pictures of door prizes donated by the participating Shops. We’ll draw winners from the guests still logged on/present at the Virtual Shop-Hop.   Shops will provide directions on how to claim your door prize.


  • Please call or text Bonnie Scott, SQGuild President at 607-227-3859
  • (Please do not call or text for a ‘virtual’ ticket reservation…that must be done through the email listed above under RESERVATIONS!)
