For 2022, special thanks goes to Shannon Fabrics for providing prizes for shops and viewers throughout the contest.

Why Support Local Quilt Shops?

The Local Quilt Shop Contest was created to highlight the efforts of local quilt shops and provide the general public an opportunity to show their appreciation.

By supporting local quilt shops, we are building community, maintaining centers for inspiration and enriching our local economies.

ByAnnie.com and the sponsors are dedicated to local quilt shops and their diverse sewing communities.
