Each year we design an exclusive line of fabrics just for the All Iowa Shop Hop. These fabrics can be found only at our participating stores. They often sell out, so be sure to pick yours up when you see it! Many of our stores will offer fabric pre-sales. You can order your fabrics early, then pick them up after the Shop Hop kicks off on June 1.
For 2023, our exclusive fabric line features the one-of-a-kind Iowa State Fair. Designed by Iowa-based artist Suzanne Aunan, and sponsored by Maywood Studio, the fabrics illustrate the many sights and sounds of the annual August event. There are seven whimsical prints in a fun color scheme, plus coordinating ginghams, mini-dot prints and solid blenders. Whether you’re an Iowa native, or just a fan of the state fair, this line is sure to bring up many heartwarming memories.
We look forward to seeing what you create with our 2023 fabrics! You may even want to consider using these unique fabrics to create an entry for the Iowa State Fair quilt contest!
Design ideas and patterns will be featured in our All Iowa Shop Hop Magazine. Additional patterns can be download for free here. Our stores also put together many projects, patterns and kits. Look for these during your Great Sewing Adventures™ Across Iowa.
