May I introduce to you another Corn Wagon Gal? Our friend, Emily Magleby, is a multi-talented mother of four from the Bay area. With an eye for coordination and a knack for precision, we are delighted to have Emily bring her sophisticated, modern style to our shop. While the influence of quilting has been ever present through her mother's love for the art, Emily's passion for putting together scraps was first expressed though scrapbooking. She made a name for herself in the world of keeping memories as the creative editor for Creating Keepsakes magazine. Her column, Latest and Greatest, gave her the unique opportunity to try new products and teach creative techniques. When she left this job, she took to sewing bags and then made the natural transition to quilting. Of course her mom was very happy to finally have Emily as her sewing buddy! And we are too. She has now been making quilts for seven years and is currently drawn to fabrics from Ruby Star Society, Cotton + Steel and Liberty of London. Besides sewing quilts, Emily has a darling Etsy shop named after her only daughter, Chloe Jane Handmade, where she has made thousands of tooth fairy pillows. They're the cutest. You really should check them out!
Along with sewing, Emily loves to listen to audiobooks. Mysteries and true crime are her favorites, oh and anything British! This infatuation spills over to T.V. and like many of us, the listening goes along perfectly with hours of sewing time. Without question, her happy place is Lake Powell and there's no place she would rather be than surrounded by her family.
Here at the Corn Wagon, Emily is in charge of our classes. She works with instructors to coordinate all the fun that goes on in our new School House! You'll also find her smiling face (behind her mask) at our cutting table at the quilt shop where she is happy to help you coordinate your next project. Emily chose her Lucky 13 fat quarter bundle by walking through the shop and pulling her absolute, number one favorites and look how beautifully they mix! They are Emily to a T as they honestly look like something fabulous she would wear. Her decidedly classic, modern style shines through in timeless denim blues, crisp creams and fashion forward dijon gold. Pick up this latest addition to our Currated by Corn Wagon collection for $39.99 before they disappear and while you're here be sure to give Emily a wave!

The tote has a slip pocket inside and divided pockets on the front. You can use leather handles, fabric or cotton webbing. You will also learn how to install optional rivets (provided in class at a nominal fee) on the front of the bag. Pattern recommends waxed canvas but one of our canvas cotton/linens would be perfect!

When autumn rolls in at the Corn Wagon, it's time to start planning our big birthday bash! This year it's a coming of age event -- we're turning 21 -- we're legal -- time for a toast! We usually celebrate with our P.J. Party Sale but like most events in 2020, we'll be doing things a bit differently this year in an effort to keep our customers and employees healthy. Our 21st birthday will be a week long celebration! Let's party Monday, November 2nd through Saturday, November 7th with daily deals! Hmmmm... we'll need party hats, sparking cider, oh and balloons! Every morning we'll pop a balloon on our social media stories announcing the deal of the day. Visit the shop any day that week and take advantage of discounts on select daily items. Beginning November 2nd, we'll be returning to our regular business hours! That means we'll be open until 6:00pm, Monday - Friday and 5:00pm on Saturday, allowing you more time to stop in for the party (and to spread out the number of guests in the shop at one time for a safer shopping experience). Last year's bash included the grand opening of our Quilter's Mercantile! We can't believe it's already been a year but let's continue the party across the parking lot for their 1st Birthday! Oh, it's going to be a fun week at the Wagon! Mark your calendars and consider yourself invited to the party!
