2011 Wasatch Front Shop Hop

Mark your calendars for the 2012 Wasatch Front Shop Hop, June 13-16.

Paducah schmaduca! The Wasatch Front gets my vote for the "Quilting Capital of America." We are blessed with a plethora of quilt shops (over 30 shops within a 150 mile radius of Salt Lake City!) a host of fabric and pattern designers, dozens of nationally renowned instructors, and even a few fabric manufacturers. So much talent, so many different takes on a the art of quilting. Utah quilters have the best of everything!

What does it take to organize a Shop Hop? Think about it....every year, 15 competing (and the competition in Utah is stiff!) quilt shops along the Wasatch front join together to support each other and introduce you to each shop and their unique flavor. In addition to getting a taste of each shop, you have the opportunity to win terrific prizes and pick up discounts, make-and-takes, and free patterns as you discover their attributes! As the "new kid on the block" I have been very impressed with this collaboration. Everyone works so well together and concentrates on making each Shop Hop an event to be remembered. It takes a lot of time and organization and we start the week after the shop hop to begin planning next year's event. Here's the low-down for 2012...

In June we met at Whimsey Cottage (in Nancy's brand-spanking new location, absolutely fabulous! to discuss the positives and negatives of "The Best Quilt I Ever Read – Shop Hop 2011." Each shop brought the dish featured in the 2011 Shop Hop Book and their shop quilt for show and tell - very impressive! (I promise to take pictures at the 2012 follow-up meeting - I wasn't thinking that far ahead this year) The things you can do with fifteen blocks and some creativity... no two quilts were alike and they really did highlight the personality of each shop.

We passed around the evaluations. Thank you so much for taking the time to fill them out. We read each and every one and appreciate your feedback. While we know that every shop will not meet every shopper's expectation, we do our best to improve on our successes and address any suggestions and every complaint we receive.

After eating ourselves silly, we drew names for prizes and bundled them up. In addition to the grand prizes awarded, we gave out 500+ prizes to the wonderful customers who completed the shop hop! Then we got down to business for 2012. We threw a lot of ideas into the pot and after much discussion and several "top 3 choices" votes, we came up with Those Were the Days/ Classic TV for our 2012 theme. Oh, the possibilities! It's time to do some research and find the perfect classic television show....

In August we met again, this time at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. I am having a serious case of shop envy - I love Marsha's shop! Her classroom is wonderful and her displays and samples are fabulous.

We finalized our TV shows, took on assignments for 2012, and headed back to our shops to begin planning, ordering, and designing! I'll let each shop announce their "classic" television show.

Thimbles is tickled to have

I've already ordered my red polo shirt and sailor hat. This will be so much fun!

Corn Wagon Quilt Company

Summer is over and the children are back in school and that means more time to quilt and stitch. At Cornwagon Quilt Co. we have been upgrading our stitching department and expanding our wool department. Some of you might not know that we have an expert wool dyer on staff, Marianne Michaels, and she is constantly amazing us with the beautiful hand dyed wool she brings into the shop. We also have a bin of small hand dyed wool pieces that are perfect for when you only need a little piece of wool.
She has also taken over the stitchery department and it is so fun to come to work and see all the new stitchery patterns. She has also put quite a few of the older patterns on sale for 50% off. Stitchery is a great project to take along while you are watching children's sporting events or waiting in the car for school to get out.
We have also added some fun fabrics that can be used for clothing. You will also find new patterns to do with these fabrics.
We are also adding new fabrics and patterns to our general collection on a daily basis.
We are looking forward to seeing you here at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. and be sure to check out all the new things and take advantage of those stitchery patterns that are on sale.

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.

12215 South 900 East, Draper UT 84020

(801) 576-0390

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:

Wacky-Four Patch with Lea Hardee

Saturday, April 23rd from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

A fun kaleidoscope quilt, this technique will have you looking at fabric in a whole new way. You'll be amazed at the possibilities!

Cost: $35.00 (includes pattern & lunch)

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)

6-Minute Circle with Lea Hardee

Saturday, May 14th from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

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!

News from Whimsy Cottage

After six years with 7' ceilings, narrow rooms, no storage, no office and no classroom, we've found new space within a mile of our current location! We feel like we're graduating and becoming an adult quilt shop. Our move-in date will be April 1, but already we're buzzing with ideas for classes and events! The Wasatch Front Shop Hop, June 15 - 18, will be our first and biggest event and we can't wait to test the new space.

If you receive our newsletter, we'll let you know when we'll be at our new address: 1875 E. Murray-Holladay Road. Or, you can go to and ask to be added to our email-only newsletter.

Friday, January 28, 2011

A lot is happening here at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. We have several new classes and clubs that we have not offered before. We have started what we call our "Garden Club." The club meets once a month, usually on the third Friday of the month, and we stitch and chat while we recreate the Florence Peto Calico Garden quilt that is housed in the Shelburne Museum. We have the pattern and also some kits that contain reproduce fabric from the original quilt. We are having a great time visiting, sewing and making new friends. This club is free and open to anyone who is interested in growing a flower garden out of fabric. In March Marianne Michaels will be teaching a Crazy Quilt Class. She has several examples of her crazy quilts in the store and they are a must see. She has the traditional satin, silk & velvet crazy quilt, but she has also done a wool crazy quilt and just finished a table runner using wool and then embellished it with wool folk art applique. She will also be teaching a class on wool applique and embellishment. We are also excited to have Kerry Green come and teach her City & County Wool Bucket in February. She will be coming again in April to teach her Acorn's Promise Quilt. We also have classes for all skill levels. Please check our website and look at our class schedule which includes pictures.

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:

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!
