First things first, we want to thank you for keeping us in business for 20 years and more importantly, for becoming our friends through the love of quilting. Celebrating with you at our annual Pajama Party was a joy last Saturday as was witnessing the Grand Opening of the Quilter's Mercantile! So many friendly faces came out to support us! Your encouragement, kindness and compliments mean the world to us. We are overwhelmed with gratitude! You are an inspiring community of makers and we consider ourselves very lucky to take part.
The Quilter's Mercantile is officially up and running! Thanks to you, it's been a successful first week! If you haven't stopped by yet, pop in for a sweet treat and take a moment to browse all the unique gift items. Our selection of holiday decor has been a big hit and we're sure you'll find a few stocking-stuffers that will bring smiles come Christmas morning. Many of you have asked where the Quilter's Mercantile is located. You'll find it in the front portion of the main level at Corn Wagon Too located at 375 South 300 East, directly behind the Corn Wagon Quilt Co. here in Springville, Utah. This building also houses our classroom and retreat rooms making it a convenient place for our students and guests to grab a cold drink, treat or even a souvenir. The Mercantile will be open in conjunction with the quilt shop Mon-Fri 10-6, Sat 10-5, and closed Sun. We hope you'll help us spread the word to all your friends whether they sew or not. We have something for everyone! An easy way to share is by following the Quilter's Mercantile on Instagram @cornwagonmercantile
