De-stash to Re-stash? Quilter's, you know what I'm talking about. We all have a stash overflowing with the prettiest fabrics you ever did see... and maybe a few we'd rather not have around any more. Hmmm... If only we could have the chance to send a few of those fabrics and kits to a loving quilter's home, maybe we could free up some space for... more glorious fabric! Yes! That's it! That's exactly what our S.A.B.L.E. Sale is all about. Helping fellow makers clear out their Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy and seeing that those fabric treasures are given new life! More than 20 local quilters will set up shop in our parking lot tomorrow to do just that. Bring the sewing gang and enjoy a day of open-air fabric shopping here at the Corn Wagon!

and as you know, it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have all been affected by Breast Cancer, whether we've fought the fight firsthand or stood by a loved one as they bravely battle. We hope you'll join us in a special project that will directly benefit those battling breast cancer. Friday, October 8th & Saturday, October 9th, we're dedicating our Schoolhouse and retreat rooms to making heart-shaped pillows to donate to local hospitals to be given to breast cancer patients. The heart shape is ideal for placement under the arm for comfort and support post-procedure. We will have a great selection of PINK fabrics available those days at 20% off for those making pillows! Gather up the girls, load up the sewing machines and lets see how many pillows we can make at the Corn Wagon! No registration needed, just come and sew during our regular business hours -- open house style -- October 8th and 9th.
Katherine Lenius was invited by Riley Blake Designs to design a fabric collection for a special collaboration with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Riley Blake is donating $10,000 to advance breast cancer research and the Hope in Bloom
fabric collection celebrates that partnership. We are delighted to offer it here at the shop! Of this collection, Katherine says, "Hope in Bloom
gathers up all the wishes I would share with those who have faced breast cancer and ties a pink ribbon around a bouquet of hope, strength, faith, courage, and support. I hope these images and words of encouragement bring comfort and some joy as we fight to find a cure to this disease that has affected so many families, including my own." Aren't these a perfect choice for pillow making? We look forward to sharing a day of hope-filled sewing with you. We also hope you'll join us next Thursday, September 30th on our Facebook Live Sale where we'll have one of our notorious Pink Sales with 10% of our sales going to Breast Cancer Research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute of Utah. Lonestar Primer with Tami JohnsonWho doesn't love the look of a Lonestar? But the idea of committing to a large scale work of art can be intimidating.

We've had so much going on in the quilting world this month that I nearly forgot to introduce the Pillow of the Month for September
and, gosh, this one might be our favorite yet! Of course we may be a bit biased. Do you recognize this stunning block? It's the classic Corn and Beans block featured on our Quilter's Mercantile logo! Isn't it striking in black and white? We have just a few kits left for this month's addition to the Pillow of the Month collection by Natalie Smith of ella+charming. Kits include the pattern and fabrics for the 18" x 18" pillow front and back for $19.99. Pillow insert and optional zipper not included. If you would like to snag the pdf version of this pattern and make one using your own choice of fabrics (the possibilities are endless) click here.
