It is almost time for the Sew Iowa hop to begin – June 1st and continues through June 30th. We have all of the fabrics that were made especially for this hop and won’t be reprinted again. A cute panel with Iowa state outline and things in/from Iowa, little people riding bicycles on curvy roads on yellow, blue and green backgrounds, participating quilt shop names and towns on red, yellow, green and blue, multi colored curvies on white or black are the fabrics for this year. We also have tone-on-tone in the matching primaries, green and white to go with these feature fabrics.

Each participating store will have a free pattern of a 9″ block that uses these fabrics. If you stop in and see us you can pick one up. We will also have kits available of the pieces to make our block for purchase.

The Sew Iowa magazines are here and ready for purchase. It contains a comprehensive directory of the shops (87) who are on the hop, region layout. 10 patterns shown in the feature fabrics and your passport to get stamped as you journey in the a region or all the state of Iowa. When you are finished hopping, mail in your passport to be entered into drawings for great prizes. Be sure to look around the store at each stop so you know what items are available for future reference. See you soon!
