Shop Hop 2011 was the best ever! Our staff had a great time representing “The Persian Pickle Club” by Sandra Dallas. We loved wearing our aprons and 20’s style pill box hats. Thanks so much for everyone that took the time and effort to drive up to Brigham City and visit us. We are super proud of the Shop Hop Quilt that Fran Leslie designed for our store. We still have one or two kits if you would like to make it, too.
For the past few years, the Brigham City Museum has had a Quilt Invitational Exhibition. Now through August 17th, you can see works by the featured quilt artist, Lenore Crawford of Midland, Michigan. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday 11 am - 6 pm, Saturday 1 pm - 5 pm and is located at 24 North 300 West in Brigham City. The show is getting rave reviews. Admission is free.
July has a 5th Saturday on July 30th …. The perfect day for a 5x5 sale. Purchase a 2011 bag for $5 (or bring the one you bought earlier this year) and fill it up with fabric, notions, patterns, books and kits. Everything that fits in the bag is 25% off.
On August 12th, Sandy Workman is joining us for the Summer Party class. This all day event (class) will include piecing tips and instruction in the morning and hand work in the afternoon. The lunch will be catered by our fabulous Cyndy, authoress of “My Big Fat Cookbook” (available for purchase at Village Dry Goods).

We're offering another Civil War Block-of-the-Month, May thru November. Faithful & Devoted: "Adelaide" (pinks) or "Charlie" (blues). The blocks are based on letters and diaries of the courtship between a young solider and his love, as they are separated by hundreds of miles during the raging war. We'll learn 12 intricate center blocks with beautiful settings and options.
An example of a new class offering, Cathedral Cutie, teaches a fun technique to create the

There's always so much to do! So many new fabrics have arrived.... So many samples to make.... So many kits to cut.... Block of the Months....
5x5 Saturday The last Saturday of this month (April 30th) is a 5x5 Saturday. Any month that has a 5th Saturday has a special sale on that last Saturday. You purchase a bag for $5. The bag is good for every 5th Saturday that year. Bring in the bag (or purchase it that day) and everything that fits in the bag is 25% off. That means that almost everything in the store is 25% off. It's the perfect time to purchase a kit or quilt backings or fabric for your next project. We even have ladies come in a day or two ahead of the big sale day to scout out their purchases.
Shop Hop The Village Girls have been busy creating samples and making up new kits for the shop hop in June. The last day of the Shop Hop coincides with Heritage Days in Brigham City. There will be a one day quilt show at the courthouse (June 18th) from 10am to 4pm and lots of artisan and vendor booths to visit around courthouse square. With so much to do, you can make the trip to Brigham City a family affair.
2012 Winter Retreat We have the talented Jeanna Kimball scheduled as the teacher and lecturer for our next winter retreat (January 2012). We are taking reservations now. There will be 2 one day classes (Friday and Saturday). You may sign up for one or both. As usual, on Friday evening we will have a dinner and trunk show at the Maddox Lodge. Please call the store to make your reservations.
Pincushion Club Our wonderful customers continue to be impressed by the Pincushion Club samples on display. Lori Genther creates a wonderful, unique pincushion each month. The little pincushion to the right, Quackers, was March's project. Isn't it cute? A limited number of patterns and kits from past projects are still available.
Come on up to Brigham City and visit us anytime. We are open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday.

February marked our first year as new owners of Thimbles & Threads and what a year it has been. We've survived a break-in, a flood, two broken water lines, a sewer line back-up, a snake (you don't want to know!) and the many joys of maintaining a 100+ year old building. Through trial and error we've learned the ins and outs of inventory management, how to deal with vendors/suppliers/manufacturers, and the many facets of bookkeeping and accounting that go along with it all. Whenever it seems overwhelming or impossible, a day at the shop with so many wonderful customers, fabulous fabrics, and beautiful quilts takes away all of our worries and reminds of us of how blessed we are. Thank you for making our first year a successful one!
We have a wonderful new classroom. We're enjoying it so much we've added a few more classes to our winter/spring line up:
Frayed Fish with Dianne Gardner
Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
I love this quilt! This is Dianne's own original pattern. A unique twist on the drunkards path, these raw-edge fish go together quickly and look great in any colorway. This is a terrific STASHBUSTER!
Cost: $15.00 (includes pattern)
You can't appliqué circles as quickly and accurately as the 6-minute pieced circle. This technique can be used for a wide range of curved shapes. Circles, circles within circles, ovals, pears, hour glasses. Your imagination is the only limit! A wonderful addition to your piecing repertoire. Cost: $35.00 (includes pattern & lunch)
If you have an idea or suggestion for a class, please let us know. We're always looking for new ideas!

Just a little hello from us to you! We are Piper's Quilts & Comforts, located in the Sugarhouse neighborhood of Salt Lake. We are currently busily turning the shop from Winter to Spring! There are tons of new projects that will beam warmth into these still chilly days. All of the pictures shown here are new projects in the shop as well as classes. Our latest class schedule can be accessed here, on our blog. Our blog is www.pipersgirls.com and is full of inspiration as well as free patterns, tips and techniques and so much more.
We are so excited for this years shop hop! Besides all of the usual fun, we will be expecting 2 new little additions to the Piper's family, hopefully they decide to make their appearance just after the Shop Hop weekend. Our theme this year is Alice & Wonderland and we will be transforming the shop like you would not believe. Hopefully you will be our guest at our Mad Hatters Tea Party!
Please come and visit us online or at the shop anytime!
P.S. We are currently doing Free Demo's every Wednesday at 2:00 PM. Each week stop by after lunch and learn a new technique, last week we did how to cut bias binding and mitered corners. The weekly schedule is on our blog as well as our Facebook page.

In May we are excited to have Miss Rosie, Carrie Nielson, come and teach two classes. We are currently finalizing the details with Carrie, but she has talked about creating a Schnibbles pattern just for our classes. We are excited to see what she has up her sewing sleeve. Once we know the details we will post them on our website: www.cornwagonquilts.com
We have several spring looking fabric lines that have arrived recently that will help chase those winter blues away. Did you know that besides offering traditional long arm quilting, we also offer quilt basting. We can put your quilt on the long arm and do the basting you need to do before hand quilting. This eliminates bending over banquet tables or crawling around the floor. If you have quilts that didn't get done for last Christmas, now is the time to get them quilted. The turn around is much quicker. We also offer hemstitching. We have lots of receiving blanket kits, but we will also hemstitch your flannel. The cost of hemstitching is $1 a running foot and that includes having all the raw edges serged. The serging creates a beautiful ravel free edge.
We are looking forward to Shop Hop in June. Mary Ann Nelson is busy creating our Shop Hop quilt. She loves to keep us guessing on what it is going to look like. All we know is it is going to include lots of red, black, and white. She is excited about it and that means it is going to be spectacular. The question is: "How small are her pieces going to be?" She is the queen of small!
We look forward to having you stop by for a visit. We love seeing you and be sure and bring in the projects you are working on. We love show and tell!
