Swarm 2012 - Swarm Shop Hop

Quilting Beehive Swarms are annual gatherings of group members for a few days to sew, chat, shop, and generally enjoy each other's company.

We try to locate them in different places around North America each year so that everyone has a chance to be "local" occasionally.

We do hope you can join us!

Swarm 2012 - Swarm Shop Hop

From Sharon in Sooke:

I have just been on the phone to a very nice young man who is in his first year as a local tour operator. I have tentatively booked his 14 passenger vehicle for a Saturday (Sept. 29) shop hop to Victoria. Based on 14 passengers, it will work out to $20.00 per person for four hours. I talked his ear off, he decided he liked me and the sound of our Swarm and this is a very good price.

I also got prices for transportation from airports, ferries, etc. but will wait until the first week in September to ask you for your itineraries – arrival times and locations, etc. The more passengers, of course, the lower the price. I have had a few very generous offers from friends willing to do pick ups as well.

This is now getting very exciting and I am trying very hard not to get into a dither!! I must say my quilty friends are already planning food for the potluck.

Just wait ‘til you see what Joan Unkel sent for door prizes!!!!! And, that’s all I’ll say about that.

Cheers, Sharon in Sooke
