I'll be traveling for business to Salt Lake City later this month and wonder if anyone might have some recommendations for LSS I shouldn't miss paying a visit to while I'm in town. If there's a stranger friendly crop opportunity that would be fun too.

And of course, restaurant recommendations are welcome too since I'll be on my own most evenings.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone who knows the city well.

Thanks!

I'm not in the area anymore, but Madison at Echo Park said they welcome visitors! That would be at the top of my list.

Not sure what day(s) of the week you will be here, but here are a couple I frequent.

Heartfelt Creations - I think they have a crop every Fri/Sat, but I've never attended.

Paper Creations

and Archivers in Orem.

Where are you staying and I can recommend some restaurants. My LSS is in Bountiful called Heartland Paper. I'm partial to it. They have crops but only on certain days so it would depend on when you are coming.

I don't know the city at all well, but on a recent I visit I went to Mom & Me Scrapbooking, and it looked like a great store. Can't remember exact location but they have a website.

Thanks everyone.

I'm not sure where I'm staying yet but I expect it will be near the University.

I'm traveling Mon. Jan 21 and will be there until Friday mid-day - alas not a weekend.

I'll definitely check out the stores mentioned and any others. I'm also interested in quilting so if there are any fabric stores that specialize in quilting I'd love the recommendations for those as well.

I have a feeling without my family in tow I'll be spending my evenings shopping. I hardly ever have the luxury to browse when I'm home.

Heartfelt Creations is also a quilting store, so it's a double whammy for you! I also think that's a not to be missed store along with Paper Creations. For quilting I like Elaine's Quilt Block and Pine Needles. For food, if you're in SLC and want something casual (and don't mind eating sandwiches for dinner) go to Tony Caputo's deli. It's yummy! Another place would be Kneaders in City Creek Center for great sandwiches, salads and soups. A step up from that would be Blue Lemon, also at City Creek. If you want something more "sit down" dining, try Copper Onion or Eva (tapas bar). Both are really good! Also, the food court at Whole Foods is not bad. If you want a greasy hamburger thats bot from a huge national chain, there's Hires Big H, or Crown Burger. Those are just a few. There's lots of good places in Salt Lake City!
