The All Iowa Shop Hop Begins June 1st!
Welcome to the 2015 AISH. We hope you have a great time visiting our 94 member shops this year. Like last year, you can buy our 100 page 2015 AISH Magazine at any member quilt shop for $5 and use the Passport in the center of the magazine or you can download a copy by clicking on the link below:
This year's theme is Iowa Patriotic and the All Iowa Shop Hop will be featuring four exclusive fabrics to go along with this theme. Click on the Our Fabric link above to see pictures of each of the fabrics.
Our exclusive fabrics can only be found in AISH member quilt shops and will be sold starting on June 1st until they are gone. Demand is already high for these great fabrics and we expect that they will be used to make Iowa Patriotic Quilts of Valor and in projects relating to the upcoming elections.
This year's 2015 AISH Magazine is available in member shops; it costs $5 and will include your AISH Passport, listings of all the AISH member quilt shops, six Iowa Patriotic patterns designed by Iowa pattern makers, and a number of articles. The AISH Magazine is designed as a year-round Iowa Quilt Shop directory and includes directions to member stores, special services, Shop Hop and Regular hours, and an index in the back so you can easily look up each shop.
This year, Iowa has been divided into 8 Regions. Each region contains 9-12 cities and 9-15 quilt shops. The Regions are based on main highways and are designed so shops are grouped in ways that allow you to hit all shops in a region within 2 to 3 days.
So mark your calendars and get ready to go on a road trip. The 2015 AISH about to start and you've got the entire month of June to participate!
Don't hesitate to write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text to 319-594-7987 if you have any questions.
