Visitors seeking a taste of the “simple life” in Shipshewana, Indiana are growing in number as we move deeper into summer. Weaver's Furniture is drawing visitors with an Independence Week Sale on all in-store furnishings and a massive quilt garden featuring brilliantly-colored blooms arranged in a striking pattern. However, a variety of upcoming arts-and-craft experiences are sure to draw visitors this summer.
- The Shipshewana Quilt Festival – Not to be confused with the “Quilt Garden Tour,” this festival was named one of the “Top 100 Events” in North America and features a nationally-recognized speaker (Wendy Butler Burns), quilting workshops, vendor shows and a quilt garden tour. The festival runs daily from June 26 through June 29, 2013.
- The Aromatherapy Sensory Tour – Discover the power of aromatherapy and how to incorporate this art into your daily life for peace of mind and rest. Sample a wide selection of aromatic elements, including natural and rare fragrances, and go on a sensory adventure. This event runs June 26 through June 28 from 10:00am-5:00pm.
- Summer Art Class: Moonlight Summer Camp – Hosted by artist Carl Mosher at the Maple Wood Nature Center, guests will have the opportunity to learn first-hand how light shines on background and foreground objects. This unique experience joins together the beauty of nature with the artistry of paint in one special event. This event is exclusively on June 29 from 9:30am-2:30pm.
Visit Shipshewana and experience a variety of arts, crafts, entertainment, food and shopping. As Weaver's owner LeRoy Weaver remarks, "These events appeal to the entire family and draw on Amish tradition," including developing artistic skills (such as quilting, painting or woodworking), and simply learning about the history of the Amish in Indiana and of Shipshewana Amish furniture.
