Here is the address to go to the All Iowa Shop Hop web site. Be sure to check out the blog for more information on some of the shops that will be participating. If you do social networking, you can also visit their facebook page and “like” them.
Special Iowa hop fabric has been designed for this event. Be sure to reserve some for yourself soon. We will not be selling it until June 1st when the hop starts, but you can reserve some now. There are 3 colorways – black and white, ivory background with colored print or white background with colored print. The design has all of the counties of Iowa interspersed with quilt block patterns. Jennifer is working on a pattern that has the Iowa Star block, the state of Iowa and heart corner blocks that uses this fabric. You will receive a 6″ charm block of a solid color at each store that you visit during the hop – June 1 – 20.
We will have extended hours for the hop only in that we will be open on Sundays from 12-4 and also Mondays from 9-6. We will also be opening an hour earlier at 9:00 and staying open until 5:00 on Saturdays. Be sure to pick up a flyer and passport or print one off online.
There are over 80 shops participating across the state of Iowa. Amazing prizes will be awarded by drawing from those who complete the whole hop. Can’t make the whole state? There will be prizes for completed regions as well. (The state has been divided into 6 geographic regions.) We are in the north central region.
Mark your calendars for hopping starting on June 1st!
