Artistic Artifacts owner Judy Gula and views of the shopMany quilters hop with a group of guild friends or as part of a family vacation. They’re not just shopping – they’re making memories as they travel around an area together. Shop Hoppers not only get to visit sewing stores, they also enjoy traveling through both large and small towns, discovering places they may have never visited before. Someone along for the ride may visit a local antique store or boutique while hoppers are visiting a sewing store. Our area has so much to offer friends and families who are shop hopping!
