What is the All Iowa Shop Hop??

 

The All Iowa Shop Hop brings together sewing and quilting enthusiasts from across Iowa and neighboring states. The event will run June 1 through July 31 in 2023.

 

The All Iowa Shop Hop Magazine is your guide to all things about the event, participating stores and sponsors. The Magazine also includes valuable patterns, projects and articles along with the official passport and map.

 

Each participating store offers the exclusive Shop Hop fabric and fun give-aways. Participants have their passport stamped at each store they visit to qualify for additional prizes!
