Annual Retreat

Four quilters study a work in progress

Every year approximately 85 of our members meet for 4-5 days in the Amish community of Shipshewana, Indiana.  We stay at the Farmstead Inn where we have a large room where we sew, talk and eat!  When we need a break we walk a short distance to shop at the wonderful quilt shops and a multitude of other shops.  We have fun and make lots of quilts!
