The Great Fall Escape Bus Tour 2018

Great Fall Escape Bus Tour Heart & Hand

The wheels on the bus will be going round and round this fall during the second annual Great Fall Escape Bus Tour in Iowa, South Dakota and Minnesota. Participants will visit seven unique quilt shops while enjoying a beautiful fall view. The tour is Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 13-14, and covers 779 miles (that’s 11 hours and 3 minutes of travel time). The cost is $170 (including tax) which covers transportation, lodging and meals. Make your plans, bring a friend or friends, and sign up today!

You will visit Heart & Hand Dry Goods Co. in Sioux City; Always Your Design, Dell Rapids, S.D.; Sewing Seeds Quilt Co., New Ulm, Minn.; Calico Hutch Quilt Shop, Hayward, Minn.; Mended Hearts Quilting & Boutique, Ellsworth, Iowa; Log Cabin Quilting, Exira, Iowa; and Cut Up & Quilt! in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Last year’s bus tour was so much fun we decided to do it again. One participant, who traveled with five friends last year, enjoyed the experience so much she already has signed up for the 2018 tour.”I loved seeing new shops and getting to know more people,” she said. Last year’s bus driver knew nothing about quilting when the tour started, but he visited all the shops with the travelers, asked questions and got a real education about quilting.

In addition to fabric shopping (of course!), tour participants will have games and prizes on the bus, great good and comfortable motel accommodations. The bus will have loads of room to stash your purchases during your travels. So join our group, make new friends, shop our region’s quilt shops and enjoy the view of our colorful Midwestern fall season.

You can make reservations for the tour at Heart & Hand, so stop in today, or call and secure your spot on the bus!
