Iowa Shop Hop 2018

Heart & Hand Iowa Shop Hop

The All Iowa Shop Hop is an exciting quilting event that brings quilters to all corners of Iowa every June. The 2018 event, launching June 1 and concluding June 30, offers shoppers an exciting collection of fabrics featuring vintage Iowa postcards in the main fabric, complimented by four colorways of a postmark design and three colorways of a word fabric listing all participating Iowa quilt shops.

As shoppers hop from shop to shop, they can have their passports stamped to become eligible for prizes. The more shops they visit, the more prizes they are eligible to win. More than 300 prizes will be given at the conclusion of the event. A special magazine featuring maps to all the shops, a passport and quilt patterns are available for purchase in all the shops. The passport also can be printed at
