Thank you to everyone who voted and to all the local shops who competed in the 5th Annual Local Quilt Shop Contest hosted by ByAnnie.com with sponsorship from Jaftex Corp, h+h americas, HQW Distributors and Shannon Fabrics.
The 2022 contest proved exciting and competitive with the top spots changing hands regularly.
We beat all records, with over 36,000 votes for more 1,900 stores in 14 countries.
Counting the Vote
It will take us about a week to finalize our review of the votes, contact the winners, collect helpful promotional information from them, and make the announcement.
We’ve got some fun things planned for the announcement and we hope to see you there!
We know this sounds like a long time, but we promise it’ll be worth it. The winning shops put a lot of effort into earning their place, and they are going to have a lot more to share with you.
Voting deadline: February 28th, 2022 at 11:59PM Mountain Time

“They have a great selection of cool fabric, patterns, threads and notions. The owner is… super helpful and willing to help you with custom orders that aren’t in regular stock, and is active and inspirational on multiple social media platforms…”– Marie-Sofie, about Quilt Passion in Svalov, Sweden
“Beautiful fabrics, super helpful and friendly staff. It’s more than just a shop, they have built spirit for the community and always find ways to give back and support other small businesses in town, and I think that is really lovely to see.”– Elley, about Kaela’s Patch in Woodend, Australia
