Shipshewana, IN (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
For over a century, traditional Amish quilts have been a core part of the Amish lifestyle. To celebrate, the tiny Amish town of Shipshewana (located in Northern Indiana) hosts the annual "Shipshewana Quilt Festival." From June 26 through June 29 in downtown Shipshewana, attendees can experience the beauty of Amish quilting first-hand.
The 2013 Quilt Festival will feature a nationally-recognized speaker, quilting workshops, vendor shows, quilting areas, and even an international contest awarding over $10,000 in prizes. Most Michiana area Amish Country quilt shops near and around Shipshewana will participate in the Quilt Festival activities.
Weaver Furniture Sales, a local Amish wood furniture store, has roots in quilting. Co-owner Ida Weaver explains, "Quilting has always been a part of Amish life, and Weaver's has created a custom 'quilt garden' to celebrate classy quilt designs with colorful flowers." Quilt Festival attendees will have the chance to experience the Heritage Trail "Quilt Gardens" like the one at Weaver Furniture Sales, featuring brightly-colored blooms arranged in eye-catching designs.
