A new Logan business is celebrating its grand opening Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with special deals and a chance to win prizes.
Located at 1 N. Main Street in downtown Logan, Clover Patch Quilt Shop specializes in providing high-end quilting fabric. The shop is the second location for a family-owned business that began in Santa Clara, Utah.
Randy Sedgwick, who owns the store along with his daughter, Vicki Laursen, always wanted to start a business in Cache Valley.
Now that it’s happened, he said, the biggest hurdle has been “getting the word out.”
“Part of the grand opening is letting people know we’re here,” Sedgwick said. “Vicki and I have been visiting all of the quilt guilds in the valley, handing out flyers and introducing ourselves.”
Along with prizes and giveaways at the grand opening, there will be demonstrations for those who do not yet quilt but who are interested in learning.
Although the shop’s main focus is to sell fabric, it also offers classes. The classes are taught by Sedgwick and can be done in groups anywhere in the valley.
Serena Cummings, a local customer new to quilting, has been very pleased with the classes and with the prices in the shop.
“I was walking around and I noticed this new store,” Cummings said. “I came in, talked to Randy and he said that if I got a group of girls together who wanted to learn, he would come and teach us. I was sold.”
Sedgwick and Laursen are excited to see what will come from their new business, especially after Saturday.“Right now we’re just looking forward to the next steps,” Sedgwick said, “watching it grow and just becoming part of the community.”
