Gardner Village Series: Pine Needles!

A few months ago, my friend, Jenifer introduced me to a place at Gardner Village. I must have missed it because I've only been sewing for about a year, but now that it has been discovered - oh ,the fun we'll have!  The store is called Pine Needles and it is an incredible store. It's so fun to wander through the store and imagine all the things that one day I will attempt to make!

On their website they say quilting and needlework is a dying art, but you won't find that at Pine Needles!  Quilting, cross stitching, embroidery supplies and one of a kind work by local artisans.  It's so fun to see the quilts that hang from the walls. They are truly unique and beautiful! They have hundreds of embroidery patterns as well. Their fabric brands include, Moda, Windham, Michael Miller, Lakehouse, Benartex, Marcus Brothers, Henry Class and more! They also have beads and unique buttons to decorate or embellish your work!

You won't be disappointed! It's a wonderful store located in a place that is beautiful year round!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
