July Hours Updates & Physical Distancing Policies for AISH

The All Iowa Shop Hop and our 93 stores are excited to be hosting you for the 9th annual event! 

We want to be sure our stores, their employees, and all of our shop hoppers stay and feel safe on the Great Sewing Adventure Across Iowa!

Important policies our stores are recommending, and sometimes requiring, participants observe while on the Shop Hop are posted on our searchable STORES page.  

We’ve also noted any changes to store hours that are posted in the AISH Magazine, so be sure to check both as you head out to shop hop.

You may also download and print one of these documents (see the links below) before you head out. We expect some of these policies may change over the coming weeks, so be sure you check back for the latest version.
