It's Gonna be a Wild Ride! Utah Shop Hop 2022





Here along the Wasatch Front  we are spoiled to have numerous quilt shops within just a couple of hours of each other. I'm not sure there's anywhere else in the U.S. where quilt shops dot the landscape as abundantly as they do here and we thank our lucky stars. When I speak of our great quilter's community, it's these shops and the makers who frequent them that I'm referring to and it's a beautiful thing to be a part of -- literally! I love visiting different shops, each a delicious gallery of textiles with its own unique flavor. Happy fellow makers to greet you, ready to share their quilt stories and expertise. Captivating color, pattern and, oh, the quilts! So. Many. Quilts. Wouldn't it be a "wild ride" to hit the road with your best quilty friends and spend a few days visiting all the shops? Now's your chance!


Think of this Shop Hop as a fabric filled amusement park with each shop a different attraction. Which "ride" will the Corn Wagon Quilt Co. be? Hint: You're going to LOVE it. We've been busy making the LOVELIEST quilts and they're beginning to pile up, ready to go on display just for Shop Hop!


If you've hopped with us before, you know how much fun we have playing up our theme. It's always a party! The best part is seeing our friends from all over the state and beyond during one week of wild shop hopping. The past two years have been a "wild ride" to say the least and we've missed you. We're more than ready to bring back your favorite quilter's "thrill ride" as you hop from shop to shop along the Wasatch Front. Mark your calendars, start planning your route and count down the days with the shop hop ticker at utahshophop.com



Thanks for Your Support at the Merc!
It's time to officially close this chapter but we can't do so without offering our thanks for your support of the Quilter's Mercantile. It's been a fun journey! Let's turn the page and look forward to more room to sew at our retreat center. Over the next four weeks the Merc space will be under construction as we make a few changes. Our Schoolhouse and other retreat rooms and will be open for scheduled classes and events as usual.



It's not too late to sign up! Join us for the Seven Brothers Block Party Class Mon, Apr 11, Mon, Apr 25, and Mon, May 16, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. In this three-part class, you'll learn how to make this traditional sampler quilt in a non-traditional way with EasyPiecing pro, Heather Dunn. Instead of piecing block-by-block, you will piece panel-by-panel for a fun sampler project using the EasyPiecing Grid by Ten Sister's Handicraft. Class members are encouraged to bring plenty of scraps to class, or purchase yardage requirements listed in the pattern (available at the Corn Wagon). Either way, you'll come away with a one-of-a-kind showpiece sewn with precision. You will need to do a bit of prep before the first class, so please register soon to allow yourself plenty of time to cut out your squares.




We've got an all new bag class coming up! The Sandhill Sling is a cool and convenient way to carry all your daily necessities! Guys and gals alike are discovering just how functional (and comfortable) a sling bag is as opposed to a backpack or purse. The sling design allows for easy access; just scooch it around when you need to access what's inside. It's compact yet roomy enough for the essentials. Choose from a front zippered pocket or a patch pocket. An adjustable strap makes it easy to wear. Perfect for a trip to Disneyland, hiking, biking, or daily use! Shelley Taylor will guide you step by step in making your own Sandhill Sling. Register now and join us at the Schoolhouse Monday, April 18, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The Sandhill Sling pattern by Noodlehead is available now in-store.
