    On another thread, someone was talking about vacationing in Utah, and for us quilters and sewers, I thought it would be nice to have a thread to have all the shops/places to visit in one section.

    Here's my contribution:

    How could I forget!

    This is the Place Heritage Park
    Recreation of the first settlement of the Mormon Pioneers, and early buildings of significance in the SL valley. The interest to quilters is located in the upstairs of the Desert Hospital/Quilt Museum. It has pioneer quilts, but more importantly, ones in the collection from the early days of the Nation's history- ask for a personal tour, otherwise, you just get to see what's displayed on the (few) walls and not all that is in the collection. The "treasured" ones are locked up, and require a tour expert to show them to you. A few of the other homes/buildings on the property also have a few quilts displayed- seeing the rest of the property can take all day.)

    2601 E. Sunnyside Avenue
    Salt Lake City, Utah 84108

    If you are just looking for quilt shops there are many in SLC and around SLC. Probably enough to fill more than 1 day.
