This year’s Shipshewana Quilt and Vendor Show will be even bigger and better than ever! This quilt show will be a juried show, so you can look forward to the best of the best! The Shipshewana area is celebrated for being home to the third largest Amish community in the United States and for its reputation of hand crafted wares. There will be many different vendors from around the country providing you with the newest and best quilting products.
On Friday, we will be participating in an Amish quilting experience. The day begins with a delicious homemade cinnamon roll while we take part in an old-fashioned quilting bee with local Amish women. Later in the afternoon we will view some of the most beautiful quilts at the Quilt and Vendor Show! The show is at a new location this year – The Michiana Event Center. This brand new facility is the premier event venue and is bringing big things to Shipshewana.
Dinner tonight will be at the Blue Gate Inn Restaurant and Bakery where we will dine family-style in the traditional Amish way.
Saturday will find us quilting along the countryside, where a step-on guide will wind us through the Amish countryside. Our stops may include an Amish quilt shop, barn quilts, quilt gardens and much more. There will be great photo opportunities along the way! As we quilt our way along, a light lunch will be included. Our afternoon entertainment will be at the Blue Gate Theatre where we will see A Simple Sanctuary, a new musical. Before the day ends, we will visit the Yoder Department Store and Old-Fashioned Hardware which offers a unique selection of merchandise ranging from tools to kitchen gadgets to Amish wooden toys. Our dinner tonight will be at Indiana’s Largest Restaurant, Das Dutchman Essenhaus.
As we travel back towards home on Sunday, we will have time to reminisce with our new traveling friends. Remember that at the end of every trip, we come home to those we love.
