There are so many things going on in our local (did you say loco or local? Either way...) quilting scene! If you happen to be near Utah County this weekend and you have a thing for quilts (and it's safe to assume, since you're reading this, that you do) you'll find plenty to keep you busy in the coming days. Let's not waste any time. There's SEW much to do!
The Garden of Quilts
is going on now at Thanksgiving Point's Ashton Gardens in Lehi, Utah. It's an event unlike any other! Today and tomorrow, stroll through the 50-acre Ashton Gardens where hundreds of quilts will be on display among the foliage. Along with this stunning outdoor exhibit, the festival includes classes, vendors, trunk shows and demonstrations. Purchase tickets, view schedules and plan your visit at thanksgivingpoint.org
and spend a day in the garden where quilts will be in full bloom September 17th and 18th.Photo credit: Ashton Gardens, Thanksgiving PointThe 47th Annual Utah Quilt Show
is in it's final weekend at the Springville Museum of Art. Located just two blocks from the quilt shop, this exhibition showcases over 100 quilts selected by jury to be honored in this Utah tradition. You will walk in awe through this historic gallery featuring Utah quilt artisans. As a sponsor of the quilt show, Corn Wagon Quilt Co. had the honor of awarding a special ribbon. See if you can spot it! Museum entry is free of charge. Donations welcome. Visit smoa.org
for museum hours and show details. You don't want to miss it!
While you're making the quilt show rounds, we hope you'll pop into the Corn Wagon for a visit! Stop by the Quilter's Merc and check out our A-maize-ing Artist for September!
Remember a week or two ago when I introduced you to Shelly Taylor, bag-maker extraordinaire? Well, she is also a very talented quilt-maker and we are delighted to have a few of her favorite pieces on display at the Merc through the end of the month. Come in, grab a Ginger & Rye cookie and take a peek at Shelley's beautiful work. Then, stay tuned for more bag class dates to be announced in the near future, where you can meet Shelley and learn from the best!National Sew a Jelly Roll Day
