WELCOME!

A NOTE FROM THE OWNER... Opening our Logan, UT store in 2011 was wonderful. And when we opened our store in Sandy, Utah two years ago, it was important to me that we did something that was symbolic of: friendship, education, & fun. It quickly became apparent to me that the answer was, "Girlfriend Green Doors". When you walk through those green doors, something magical happens. It's where the woman whose children just left home and has now become an "empty nester" has re-discovered a passion that once existed when making clothing for her little ones years before out of necessity, only to realize that making a quilt for that first grandchild is even more rewarding. It's a place where a young mom wants to wittle just a half-hour a day to do something for herself, frazzled and even a little teary, but determined to keep that spark about her. She comes exhausted, but leaves uplifted and ready to take on the day once again. It's been a place where that gentleman who had always loved to work with a hammer and saw, meticulously measures each fabric piece to make sure it all fits, now with the help of a rotary cutter. These are all true stories. And there are so many more. We want you to know that things may look a little different, but there can still be wonderful things happening through the "green doors" virtually.

Born and raised in Southern California, Kris ventured out to school in Rexburg, Idaho and then out to Northern Utah to become an elementary school teacher! She took her love for teaching to the sewing and quilting industry, and the rest is history! She has appeared on The Nate Berkus Show and The Rachael Ray Show and contributed to magazines such as Quilts & More, Where Women Create, Quilt Sampler and Designs in Machine Embroidery. And no, you’re not seeing double! She does have a twin sister who is Kim Christopherson of Kimberbell Designs! Although they own two separate businesses, their love for quilting and machine embroidery is the same. Kris and her family started My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe back in 2011 and now have two locations in Logan and Sandy, UT! It’s true what they say, “behind every small business is a family!” We are thrilled to welcome you to the girlfriend family now!
