Johnstock 2018 will be held on Saturday June 2nd from 10-4 pm.
Sunday, 10-5 PM
Tuesday through Friday 10-7
On Friday, July 28th pick up a shop hop passport at the first shop you visit. As you travel the state, each shop will stamp your passport and give you a free 5” fabric square from this years exclusive fabric coordinates along with a pattern for an 8” finished quilt block, no purchase necessary.
Continue visiting any and all participating shops to fill up your passport! 'You make it what it is - do as much or as little of the hop as you choose'. May we suggest traveling with a loved-one, family or friends, plan a couple day trips, jump on a regional bus and enjoy the inspiration you’ll find while visiting Minnesota's Finest Quilt Shops!
Each year we feature an exclusive fabric line; shops work very hard to create and design projects using the exclusive fabrics. Fabrics may be pre-ordered from participating shops for $11.99/yard. Fabric will be released from shops the first day of the hop.
Participating Shops send a sample of their 8” finished quilt block to one central location. All of these blocks are assembled into our annual Quilt Minnesota Quilt. The quilt makes its début during the shop hop hanging in the courtyard at Gruber’s Quilt Shop in Waite Park. This quilt is a snap-shot of all the participating shops and their abundant creativity.
Watch for Regional Bus Trips in the area you wish to visit! Get your friends together, enjoy the beautiful state of Minnesota and let someone else do the driving!

The Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop is an annual event to encourage knitters, crocheters, and other yarnies to explore the participating local yarn stores. Each store will have a free pattern or two, plus specially dyed yarns for those chosen patterns. This year we have 14 stores participating, so gather your friends and get ready to Hop around the Twin Cities metro area for a fun-filled adventure!
Knit & Bolt is collecting donations for Little Kitchen Food Shelf. Our yarn is dyed by a local woman dyer and was milled at a woman owned US mill.
