What was the most asked question at our store during the Utah Shop Hop? “Who makes your shop look so fun year after year?” Answer: "It's Sew Shannon!" Shannon White is responsible for pulling together our creative displays and boy does she have a knack! If you haven’t met her, I’d like to take a moment to introduce you. She has likely helped you at the shop on a Tuesday or Thursday and you very well may have taken a bag or quilt class from her. She is friendly, bubbly and so much fun to be around. She LOVES all things red with white polka-dots; from fabric & scissors to cowgirl boots! She recently added “Dottie,” to her fleet - - a Featherweight machine adorned in, you guessed it, red with white polka-dots! Shannon has been with the Corn Wagon for about 10 years now but her roots in sewing run much deeper. Even her Mustang sports the word "sew!" Shannon is known for making the most fabulous bags and what she refers to as “quick-and-easy” quilts. They are always some of our hottest items here at the shop. She has taught sewing classes far and wide; in fact she’s currently away teaching at the Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival. Shannon and her good friend, Terry Griffin, hostess Cabin Fever, a spectacular biannual quilt retreat highlighted by Shannon's talent for building creative atmosphere around a theme. In other words, this girl knows how to throw a sewing party and makes every guest feel special. Many of you experienced that at last week's beach party. How does she do it? Our Shop Hop themes are selected very early on (I'm not kidding when I say we're already talking about ideas for next year!) and Shannon immediately has her radar on for anything that might make our shop shine. Displays, photo ops, treats, games and giveaways are all part of months of planning and collecting. It's so much fun to see it all come together and even more fun to see our customers enjoy it! When Shannon's not at the shop, she's likely out enjoying her cute grandchildren or traveling on the road with Mr. White. They always know the best stops, shops and yummy food along the way. Thank you Shannon for always sharing your creative spirit and bright smile with us! We can't wait to see what you come up with next!
