About Whimsy Cottage
The store has been around, in one form or another, since 1997. It was first called Moose Hollow, was in Park City, and only existed for one year. It reopened in early 1999 in Heber City in a wonderful bungalow we severely remodeled. Two years later, we bought the house next door and remodeled it into a retreat house for quilters. Then, in 2002, Whimsy Cottage was the first shop in Utah to be featured in BHG's Quilt Sampler - it was such a surprise and such an honor! For personal reasons, the store was closed for two years. It relocated in Holladay, opened once again in October, 2005 and that's where we are now.
We carry vibrant, true-color fabrics. Ten years ago, those were few but today, they are plentiful. The quilts we make as samples focus on traditional patterns using nontraditional fabrics - and we do lots of applique. Neither the store nor the staff is large - we like to say we're small but mighty! We pride ourselves on customer service.
