It's been a looooooooong wait, but it's nearly time for the Utah Shop Hop to begin! The past couple of years have been a WILD RIDE! After a two-year pandemic pause, we couldn't be more excited to once again team up with 11 fabulous Utah quilt shops to bring you the Utah Shop 2022! Think of this year's shop hop as a fabric filled amusement park with each shop a different attraction. When you visit the Corn Wagon one week from today, you'll find it has transformed into one of the most nostalgic amusement park rides of all time; The Tunnel of Love. We've spent the past two years searching for the most romantic quilts and we're confident we found them. Our employees have been busy sewing up all new samples that will be on display for the first time during shop hop. As always, the Corn Wagon gals are ready to party!
We can't wait to bring back your favorite quilter's "thrill ride" as you hop from shop to shop along the Wasatch! Check out www.utahshophop.com for all the details including a countdown ticker and downloadable list of participating shops so you can plan your route for your own wild ride! Here at the Corn Wagon, we'll be showing our customers the love with a different department on sale 20% off each day of the Shop Hop as well as a gift with purchase for the first 400 customers to come through our register! We're letting you in on our sale schedule now, just in case you want to plan your trip south to coordinate with the discount that fits your fancy. Please note: discounts will be available in-store only, day of sale on in-stock, regular price items. May not be combined with other discounts or promotions. Some exclusions may apply.
Here's a sneak peek at just one of the love-ly quilts you'll find on display during shop hop! We thought a spring bike ride through a flower garden sounded romantic indeed so here we have the Pedal Pushers Remix quilt by Jillilly Studio. Notice how the colorful blocks resemble blooms while the black blocks form bike wheels. The cute bicycles with flower baskets may look like applique but they're cut from a panel! Sara Anderson pieced this darling quilt using Jill Finley's Petals and Pedals collection from Riley Blake Designs. It's available as a kit beautifully packaged in a collectors box for $158.99. We're especially fond of Ramona Sorensen's custom machine quilting!

S.A.B.L.E stands for Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy. It's real. We know from experience and we want to help you out! We've rounded up 20+ S.A.B.L.E. vendors and we are hosting a S.A.B.L.E Sale in our Corn Wagon Too parking lot! They'll have fabric, patterns, kits, notions - - anything quilting related that they're wiling to part with. Think of it as a fabric flea market of giant de-stash where you're sure to find some true treasures. Vendors will set their own prices and manage their own transactions so come prepared with cash or Venmo. Mark your calendar! It's always a great time!
