If There’s a Whisk There’s a Way

Sur La Table is now open at Fashion Place mall and we were there on the first day to take a cooking class.

Located in the new wing of the mall, you simply can’t miss it, it’s beautiful! And of course full of all the kitchen gadgets we love.

The cooking class was pie making. We made a delicious strawberry rhubarb pie and a caramel ganache pie in the best crust I’ve ever tasted.

Quilt Show
Community Event, Professional Services, Specialty Shops

Beautiful Things Come Together One Stitch at a Time

The Utah Quilting & Sewing Marketplace is going on right now until Sunday at South Town Expo in Sandy.

You not only can shop for craft supplies, an endless array of fabrics, kits and tools, but you can stroll down aisles of the most incredible quilts you will ever see.

I realized that quilting has evolved, the traditional quilts are always a favorite but we saw some incredible hand painted quilts that looked like Renaissance oil paintings, all the way to some very modern designs.

Most vendors are offering show specials which we thought was great, these vendors come from all the surrounding states to sell their products.

Kim Peterson of Lindon, Utah who made this quilt was one of our favorites.  Hand appliquéd, hand embroidered, machine pieced.  It was so happy!

We thought this booth had a fun thing going.  You pick out a fabric doll, dress it to look like the people in your family including your pets!  Then hang from a rod.  It can be displayed in any room.

Admission into the show is $12

Children are allowed but we didn’t see any.

Get to this show this weekend, you will be glad you did!
