And the Utah Shop Hop goes on! We LOVE meeting so many new friends and welcoming old friends back to the shop hop for 2022. If you haven't made it in yet, there's still time! The Utah Shop Hop continues through the weekend and we have plenty more quilt love to share. Join the "Wild Ride" and visit 12 great shops along the Wasatch! You'll receive an exclusive free pattern from each shop and have the chance to enter to win fabulous free prizes! For full details visit utahshophop.com
When you enter the "Tunnel of Love" you'll find yourself surrounded in heartfelt inspiration with quilts and fabric galore! As you float though the shop you'll notice some photos with a few familiar faces. We asked our employees to bring in their wedding or engagement photos and decided to make a game of it. Pick up a "Who's Who" game paper and see how many photos you can identify throughout the shop, then enter your guesses in our drawing for a Corn Wagon gift card! You can also enter to win 25 fat quarters from the Flirt
collection by Sweetwater or a $100 Gift Basket full of Corn Wagon goodies or a $250 gift card! If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you can even enter to win our free drawing for the cute matching wall quilt and table runner shown below! If you make the drive from Corn Wagon in Springville to My Girlfriends in Logan, be sure to pick up a ticket and get it stamped at both shops for even one more chance to win a prize! There is no charge to attend the Utah Shop Hop this year and no purchase is necessary to enter the prize drawings. Just stop in and hop on the "Wild Ride!"
In last week's newsletter we shared our shop hop quilt, Quilter's Have Big Hearts
by Ramona Sorensen (it's the free pattern you'll receive just for visiting during shop hop) but what you didn't get to see was the cute display Shannon White built around it. She always has something fun up her sleeve. When you enter our front door, you'll be greeted by this unique heart quilt (only a few kits left in-store) as well as a vintage wedding gown and satin gingham formal dress both worn by Shannon's mom many years ago. An old treadle machine is there to symbolize our life-long passion for the art of sewing and of course you'll find beutiful fabrics from the Roselyn collection by Minick and Simpson like those used in our shop hop quilt. Can you spot Marsha's wedding picture tucked into this scene from The Tunnel of Love? Oops! I just gave away an answer to our Who's Who game! Wink wink...
Another favorite quilt featured in The Tunnel of Love, Hello Love
(below) was pieced by Shannon White using the popular True Kisses
collection by Heather Bailey, inspired by the iconic music of the most-beloved pop band of all time: the Beatles.
So much romance in one quilt, this heart design is reminiscent of red tulips that convey a sense of blooming love. As is the case with most of our shop hop quilts, there are only a handful of kits left for this 66" x 77" quilt top -- and did I mention our daily shop hop special for Friday is 20% of kits? Some exclusions apply. Discounts available on in-stock, regular price items; cannot be combined with other offers.
Friends from far away can get a taste of the shop hop fun on yesterday's Facebook Live Sale
. As always, you can score some great deals and laugh with us through our off-the-cuff antics. We had some technical difficulties so there are two short broadcasts sharing a few vignettes from The Tunnel of Love. So step right up, fasten your safety belts, please keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times and enjoy the "Wild Ride!"S.A.B.L.E. SALE -- Saturday, May 21!
