Monday - back home
I love the sound of the buggies clip-clopping on the paved streets. This picture was taken at E & S Bulk Food Sales. It's a must stop if you are in Shipshewana, IN in addition to Lolly's Fabric Shop, Rebecca's Antiques, The Bread Box Bakery, Jo Jo's Pretzel's, Wana Cup and The Blue Gate Restaurant. In these places you'll no doubt run into a fellow retreater.
What a wonderful time was shared by everyone these past few days in Shipshewana! The time goes by so quickly and soon we are counting the days until the next retreat.
On Thursday, two cars carrying eight Janiacs traveled to Marion, Indiana to see the exhibit of doll quilts belonging to Judi Gunter and Phyllis Twigg-Hatcher at The Quilter's Hall of Fame. This building was the home of Marie Webster who wrote the first book on quilt history. There were 100 years of doll quilts on display. Our group was excited to see the double handled basket quilt that inspired Jo Morton to make it.
The next two photos show the room and the desk where Marie Webster wrote her book, Quilts: Their Story and How to Make Them.
I'll post more pictures soon. There's lots to catch up on and Thanksgiving is only three days away. It's good to be home.
