New Kits: Quilts Hanging Everywhere

As I walked through the store the other day I thought about how beautiful all the quilts hanging from the walls make the shop. And then I wondered if our customers knew they are available as kits. Probably not! But it’s true…we do all the work for you. We design a wonderful quilt and pull all the fabrics together for you into one kit. So I snapped some photos to share with links to where you can order them online. You’re also welcome to call the store (801-576-0390) or stop by and pick up your favorite kit today!

Make our world a better place with The 9th Row.

Many of the quilt shops are participating in The 9th Row project. In making a donation to The Make a Wish Foundation, the shops received an exclusive pattern. Consider the purchase of The 9th Row kit and a portion of your sale will help out the local children’s charity. Ask for it in your store!

Row by Row On the Go! is 2017’s theme and we’ll be participating here at The Quilter’s Lodge.  We’re super excited about Row by Row Experience’s brand new program, Row by Row Junior, too!  It’s designed for kids ages 6 to 14.  They travel along with an adult.  They collect free row patterns designed just for them to make and they can learn to sew at home with family help and support from www.rowbyrowexperience.com.

Row by Row Junior follows the same rules and time schedule as adult Row by Row Experience, June 21 through Labor Day.  Kids need to be in the shop to get the free pattern handout, but anyone can buy a kit.  Grandmothers and traveling family can bring them home as gifts or souvenirs.

Row by Row Junior designed the five different row patterns so you can be sure they are kid-friendly.  Make it an adventure traveling to collect all five and seeing how different shops make up their row.  The horizontal row was designed by us at The Quilter’s Lodge and the two horizontal were designed by Row by Row. Bonus…we have kits for all three!! 

We’ll be awarding “I Made This!” ribbons to the first five kids who return with something made using a Row by Row Junior pattern.  Any sewing effort will be celebrated, not just quilting.  Find Row by Row Junior’s free online activities, kids’ journal pages, support for learning to sew at home, and more at HERE this summer.

“We want our kids to learn how to sew and carry on this craft that’s so dear to us,” explains Janet Lutz, Row by Row’s founder. “Traveling to new places, collecting something just for them, visiting Grandma, summer vacation…this is all part of the wonder and excitement of Row by Row Experience.  Please join us.”

Rag Quilt Kids Sewing Camp with Kaitlyn

I learned to sew from my grandmother, mainly because my mother did not have the patience to do so. Although I enjoyed the time I spent with her we started on a blouse. Looking back I wish I had started on a quilt so my confidence in my sewing ability increased with the process. Can you imagine the quilts I could have crafted had I learned to quilt at that age. And trust me, I do not make blouses for myself.

Are you a mom or grandma that wants to share their love of quilting with their little ones?  We welcome mothers and grandmothers to attend our Rag Quilt Kids Sewing Camp  with their children. It will be great fun!!

Attendees will learn fabric layout, piecing, and machine quilting in this 3-day camp.  Sewing machines will be provided.  This camp is designed for children ages 8-12.

Supply List:
2 layer cakes OR (84) 10’’ squares of a variety of fabrics
(42) 9″ 80/20 Batting  OR Flannel Squares
Chalk Marker
Quilting Ruler to help with marking
Coordinating Thread
Rotary Cutter

Prep Instructions: Please bring fabric cut into 10’’ squares and batting into 9″ squares

Please click here to print the supply list

Cost: $ 75.00
We have two times available for the 3-day camp. Choose between 10am to Noon OR 1:00 to 3:00pm.

How to Plan a Private Retreat at The Quilter’s Lodge

We absolutely love working with private groups to make their retreats the perfect experience. We have worked with small and large groups; local and out of town groups; from Quilting to family gatherings. But many of you have asked us how to go about putting together a “private retreat” for you and your friends. So we are going to share some tips with you.


First, make a list of friends and family to invite. Contact them and let them know you are working on putting together a private retreat and ask them if they want  a private room or a shared room?

The Quilter’s Lodge can sleep up to 26 people and has 10 bedrooms, two of which are ADA accessible.  We have 2 bedrooms with 1 king bed, 2 bedrooms with 1 queen bed, 4 bedrooms with 3 twins, 2 bedrooms with 1 queen & 1 twin.  Private retreats are booked by the bedroom not the bed space.


Second, pick a date.

We are pleased to accommodate private groups with for a minimum of two nights.  Check in is at 3 PM and check out is at noon. To secure the dates, $150/ bedroom deposit is required. You can collect the funds and pay for all at once, or send your group to our accommodations page and have them book their room HERE.


Third, decide on FOOD!

Private retreats have full access to our full kitchen.  Eat in or Dine out! Many of our groups have assigned out each meal to those attending, so no one person has the burden of planning, cooking and cleaning up the meals.

Fourth, plan out your Meeting Space.

The Quilter’s Lodge will provide sewing and cutting stations for sewing groups.  And no need to travel with an iron, ironing board OR your cutting mats, we will provide that as well. We also have sewing machines for rent if needed. For groups with a minimum of 15 people attending, you will get to use our large workroom. This space has plenty of room to spread out and large wall design boards to layout your quilts before sewing.

Fifth, determine your projects to work on.

Many of our groups simply have their friends bring their own projects. Lucky for you, there is an onsite fabric, notions & pattern shop that you will have access to for purchasing needed supplies or starting a NEW project! Other groups will have a couple of people plan out specific craft and/or quilt projects for everyone. If you want a member of our educator team to teach a mini class on a certain technique or project, we can!  The Quilt Shop has millions of inspirational ideas to assist you in your next “must do”. It’s your retreat, be as creative as you’d like!


Bonus, we offer a pricing break if you book 3 or more bedrooms.
Contact sherie@quilterslodge.com or 435-576-0420 to book your PRIVATE retreat today.
