We will be in Amish country, and you know that means beautiful quilts, shops, food, and friendly people.  In addition, we will see famous quilt gardens and barn quilts.  We will also participate in their shop hop!  The quilt show will feature male quilters in 2017.
Something new for us, and a great new outlook on the quilting arts.
