Today’s What to Expect post discusses something vitally important: Where to eat.  I love good food and and have been known to plan entire vacations around food.  I reached out to family members and friends via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and have assembled a very enthusiastic list of places to eat, and a few sites you might want to stop at along the way.  And thanks to my sister-in-law, Mary Clark (my Sewing Summit roomie & local photographer) for letting me use her beautiful photographs.


Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City

Be sure to check out Erin’s Quilt Market Eats: Welcome to Salt Lake City post from last May—Erin shares some great suggestions and beautiful photos of downtown.

Design Sponge put together a Salt Lake City Guide in 2009. It’s a bit outdated, but worth checking out!

Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City


Take a Walk Downtown

As you know, the Sewing Summit is held downtown at the beautiful Little America Hotel (you have reserved your room, right?) There is no reason to rent a car unless you really, really want to. Downtown Salt Lake City is a walkable, clean, friendly city, and it is set on a grid. Once you know that the closest mountains you can see are East, it is easy to figure out how to get places. Salt Lake’s public transportation system, TRAX, is even free within the downtown zone, and there is a TRAX station a block or two from the hotel.  If you need a break from sewing and fabric (it really does happen) or want to go on a walk, consider checking out the following destinations:

Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City Library: designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, it is a striking building and worth checking out. 210 East 400 South
Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City

Cathedral of the Madeleine: 331 E South Temple—Opened in 1909–I think it’s particularly cool that my mother-in-laws needlework guild did the embroidery when they remodeled the Cathedral years ago.

Temple Square: a 10 acre complex located in the center of Salt Lake City—beautiful grounds, striking architectural details, fountains, and several visitors centers. Headquarters of the LDS Church, there is a free performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir each Sunday morning.

City Creek Center: 50 S Main –This mixed use development (retail, dining, residential buildings, fountains, and a man made creek) opened earlier this year and is gorgeous! Anchored by Nordstrom & Macys, features many high end retail & dining options. Plus an outdoor fountain that includes a fire feature!

After all that eating, how about a jog?

And if you are worried about eating too much that weekend, consider joining one of our teacher’s, Carrie Lundell and I for a 5k (or a shorter walk) Friday morning! 6am. Lobby. See you there.


  1. Thanks for rounding all this up! Laura from Quokka Quilts and I are in SLC until the Monday after SS, and then back the night before we fly home 3 weeks later, I’m hoping to get some good exploring in with the camera in our spare time!

  2. Eva is an AMAZING spot to eat downtown. http://www.evaslc.com — they’ve got wonderful small plate options and a great atmosphere!!! XO

  3. I’m dead serious about that burrito. Who’s with me?! :)

    • Since you are the queen 2am sewist, I figured you were. I’m in!
