This year’s All Iowa Shop Hop Exclusive Fabrics feature Iowa State Fair scenes! Illustrations of historic fair buildings, fun patterns of farm animals, and a busy midway print will bring heartwarming memories of annual trips to the Fair. The Exclusive Fabrics are available at participating Shop Hop stores beginning June 1, 2023. Fabric pre-orders may be placed with most stores.
