My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe in Logan is our regional winner for Utah!

Read on to learn more about this fun shop that has a schedule packed full of awesome events online and in person!

Please tell us your store’s story.

Mike and Kris Thurgood are the owners of My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe located in Logan, Utah. Along with their physical store, they also run a large part of their business online. 

Kris, a former elementary school teacher, and Mike, a former international sales manager for a scientific company, decided back in 2011 that they both wanted to start a family business together. Thus, My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe was born.

Kris’s passion for creating a place for people to come together and be inspired, learn something new, and enjoy each other’s company, has made My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe a destination spot for people near and far.
As a monthly contributor for KSL’s Studio 5 for the past 12 years, Kris has also appeared as a guest on The Nate Berkus Show and the Rachael Ray Show. Her work is published in magazines and countless hours of video content on YouTube.

Despite the effects of the pandemic, in August 2020 a new warehouse was opened in Smithfield, Utah, to facilitate an ever-growing e-commerce side of the business. MGQS is committed to being a leader in sewing, quilting, and all things handmade for years to come.

They have great classes both in person and online. The supplies they carry are fantastic and the employees are very helpful and caring.


Please tell us about your staff.

Our staff, who we affectionately call our “Girlfriends” (and guy friends, of course!) is comprised of 55 wonderful people between our store and our warehouse.

On top of our store staff, in the warehouse we have a full creative team, a kit team, machine and longarm specialists, a full time longarm quilter, as well as marketing, video, shipping, and fulfillment teams.

We truly could not operate without every one of these amazing people!
