The Second Saturday in June Is always a special day here in Springville, Utah. It's the final day of Art City Days complete with a Grand Parade! Because the parade route passes in front of the Corn Wagon Quilt Co. along 400 South, we will not open our doors until Noon tomorrow, Saturday, June 12th. We love our beautiful hometown and look forward to celebrating with so many friends and family.
This does affect our Saturday Sampler for June. Kits for the month of June will be available for pickup at the main quilt shop beginning tomorrow at Noon. Please make note of this location and time change as there is a private event scheduled in our classroom for the day. You may have received an automatic reminder email this morning with the usual 10am opening time. Please, kindly disregard that message. We apologize for the confusion. Like past months, you will have a one week window to bring in your finished assignment from May to receive June's kit free, so if you'd rather avoid the celebration traffic all together, we look forward to welcoming you next week. We have an extra special coupon item this month for our Saturday Sampler participants ready to meet you at the main shop! Just look at how beautiful our blocks are so far! We're nearing the end of this project and can't wait to see how it all comes together. Registration for our next Saturday Sampler will begin in August. Watch for more details in a future newsletter.
There's another special event we look forward to annually during Art City Days

With a new month comes a new A-maize-ing Artist at the Merc! This month's trunk show features local textile artist, Donna Riding. Donna wows us with her work at our Time Out at the Wagon (open sew) each Wednesday. From classic patchwork to intricate thread embellishment, Donna works magic with a sewing needle.
Taught by her mother, Donna began with embroidery and crochet at age 9 or 10, adding sewing to her skill set by age 11. Quilt-making has been a part of her repertoire
for 20 years now with stops to learn something new! She loves it all! Her experience and talent shine with each work of art she stitches.
Pop in the Merc this month and catch a bit of inspiration from Donna's trunk show. Her quilts often include a variety of applique including traditional needle-turn as well as wool. Her attention to detail is exquisite as a master of thread embellishment. You'll even get to see a bit of her lace work!
Donna says, "The journey's have all been fun, but now the race is on... I have a terrible S.A.B.L.E. problem. I better get busy!" I think we can all relate.
Another great look for the Pretty Pineapple Quilt Class
-- How about Patriotic Pineapples? Heather Dunn recently finished this new red, white and blue beauty (below) and is excited to teach you how to create your own crop of pineapples using the EasyPiecing Grid by TenSisters Handicraft. Join our class (only a couple of seats left) Wednesday, June 23 & Thursday, June 24, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. This quilt can finish at three different sizes, depending on the grid size you prefer. Choose from 1", 1.5" or 2" finished squares to make a wall quilt, children's quilt, or adult lap quilt. It's up to you! We would love to help you coordinate your quilt. Register today on our website or in-store. This class is available in-person only.
