Throughout the past half-century, visitors to this shop have experienced the unique folk art, "women's work" and crafts of Utah. Organized during the Great Depression by the Mormon Church's Relief Society, it has survived into the 21st century through its preservation of many vanishing home arts such as quilting, tatting, trapunto and hardanger. It is truly a one-of-a-kind source for handmade products that transcend the centuries. Come here to find a gift unique to Utah.
I use to love going as a child to mormon handicraft and admire the items that were made. I know that times have changed but it was extremely difficult to find let alone get directions from locals who didn't know where it was, who happened to be members of the church, oh well, but I was surprise to find nothing except fabric and inside a book store no less. What a disappointment for my sister and I who loved this as kids. We aren't that old so this was a sad part to see gone. We did purchases fabric
of course to add to the quilting stash but the crafts are what was very interesting to see what gave us the will to see how others were doing things also and help them too, for their efforts in the industry that they were supporting in themselves. Thanks so much for all those sister over the years who gave us ideas and desire to make us go out and do things too!
