The All Minnesota Shop Hop is back again in 2023 to bring together sewing and quilting enthusiasts from across the great state of Minnesota and nearby neighboring states. This fabric lovers event takes place April 1 through May 31 in 2023 and Roseau’s very own M&M Modern Materials is once again taking part.
The All Minnesota Shop Hop Magazine is your guide to the event, participating stores, and sponsors. The magazine includes valuable patterns, projects, and articles along with the official passport and map. Each participating store offers an exclusive “Shop Hop Fabric”, along with other giveaways, raffles, and prizes. Participants may have their passports stamped at each store they visit to qualify for additional prizes.

TIME TO SHOP!
There’s nothing quite like a trip to a county or state fair. The exclusive line of fabrics for 2023 is all about the sights, sounds, and smells you find at the fair!
Designed by Benartex, this collection includes a bold panel celebrating the festive fair atmosphere. Combine it with one or all of the coordinating prints:
- Assorted fair foods – even some on a stick!
- Winners’ pies and preserves
- Shiny blue ribbons
- Barnyard animals and their sounds
- Quilts displayed for judging
- Rows of colorful tickets for carnival rides
- Word toss prints of Minnesota counties
- In addition, there are six, bright-colored blenders to tie everything together.
The specialty fabric that M&M Modern Material ordered looks like this:
COLLECT FREE QUILT BLOCKS
Each store has created a unique 4-inch quilt block capturing the fun and creativeness of sewing and quilting. The quilt blocks are only available to those embarking on their Great Sewing Adventures Across Minnesota!
Collect the fabric blocks and combine them with the exclusive All Minnesota Shop Hop Fabric to make a one-of-a-kind project.
