About The Shop Hop
Do you love fabric? We do too. A group of local shop owners decided to get together for a weekend of fabric shopping that is now legendary for all those who participated. By enthusiastic shopper demand, the Austin Fabric Shop Hop has become a bi-annual event happening in the Spring and Summer.
The Shop Hop is three days of fabric glee! During this 3-day weekend-long shopping extravaganza you'll be able to shop special extended hours in all the participating fabric shops, and have access to online stores not normally open to the public. In addition, participating stores were hand selected to provide a diverse, but complimentary blend of fabric and design. Here's what to expect:
