Quilting Adventures


Utah Quilt Adventure - September 13 - 17, 2023  

We’re happy to announce that we are once again offering a Quilt Adventure!  This year we are headed to Utah for the Garden of Quilts Outdoor Quilt Show in Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point (Lehi, UT).  We visited the show last year and were impressed with the number of quilts and the unique ways that they are displayed in the garden setting. In addition to the quilts on display they also have tents with vendors where you can shop. 

After our Wednesday mid-day arrival at the Salt Lake City International Airport we’ll go to downtown Salt Lake City and Temple Square where you’ll enjoy a light lunch on your own at City Creek Center Food Court.   After checking into our hotel, the Hyatt Place in Lehi, Utah, we’re off to an evening of fun and games!  The “Icebreaker Dinner” at Thanksgiving Point (included) is the first of many events for our trip. 

On Thursday we’ve planned stops at two nearby quilt shops:  Corn Wagon Quilt Company (Corn Wagon Quilt Company | Springville, UT ( and American Quilting (American Quilting  (  Both are exceptional and we know you’ll find lots of things to take home.  That evening after an early dinner at (you guessed it) The Cracker Barrel (not included) we will go into downtown Salt Lake City to take in the rehearsal of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.  We promise that it is an experience you won’t forget.

The next day after visiting Quilts Etc. (Quilt Etc. Sandy, UT Home ( another fabulous quilt shop, we’re off to Park City, UT.  You’ll have a chance to see one of the premier winter sports areas in the state, shop at some of the many downtown boutiques, enjoy lunch on your own, and perhaps visit the Park City Museum on Main Street to learn a little more about the history of the area. We will then take the scenic route south to Provo for a driving tour of Brigham Young University. On Friday evening, dinner at the hotel is included.

Saturday, we’ll be at the quilt show through early afternoon.  Admission to the show and a box lunch are included in the trip price. Later in the day we plan to visit Pine Needles Quilt Shop (Home ( . . . yes, another great quilt shop.  Dinner is included this evening and we’ve planned a special surprise for you.

After a few fun-filled days in Utah, we will return home Sunday morning, September 17.

Since we may need to offer the trip through a lottery, we will accept reservations through March 31.  If we receive more reservations than we can accommodate, we will conduct a lottery.   All you need to do is fill out the registration form and send it to our PO Box so that it arrives by March 31.  We suggest you do it now! 😊Please remember to add your roommate's name.

We will not be able to accommodate requests for more than one room per reservation form so if you are traveling with several people, we cannot guarantee we will be able to accommodate all in your group.  That said, we don’t want to discourage groups from signing up. If not everyone in the group is drawn for the lottery, there is always the wait list. We almost always have some turnover. By April 5, we will notify you as to whether you are on the trip or the wait list. If you are accepted, at that time you will send in your deposit of $250.
