Shipshewana Dear Jane Retreat – Day 2


Shipshewana is one of those places where the hands on the clock seem to move faster than they do at home. It's already Wednesday night! How is that possible? I'll try to catch you up on things but first I want to tell you how you can win some of the beautiful 1930s prints from Blue Hill Fabrics.

Here's what you need to do - Become a fan of Sentimental Stitches by clicking on the link in the side bar or go to the Sentimental Stitches facebook page and click on the link there. I'll keep track of everyone who does that between now and Sunday night when I get home from Shipshewana. On Monday I'll start drawing names until the fabric is gone. If you're already a facebook fan, leave me a comment here and I'll include you in the drawing.

Back to Shipshewana........Lolly's Fabrics is participating in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge. They've received over 300 pillowcases so far. Several of us are making a pillowcase a day while we're here. LaGrange county has a goal of 1000 pillowcases by this summer. If you can, make one or two along with us.

I promise, tomorrow is going to be picture day at Lolly's.

I spent a little while at Rebecca Haarar's shop today. She has some wonderful things in the store right how.

These are hand loomed on a local Amish farm.

They are made in a variety of lengths

They're woven from blue jean! How's that for living green!

The prices are fantastic and I'm sure Rebecca can package one up to mail if you're interested.

Rebecca's specialty really is her quilts. At least for us quilters that is.

This is a really beautiful Missouri Comet!

I really, really, really wanted this antique quilt. It's a local Mennonite piece.

There's always a great selection of tops, blocks and feedsacks to choose from.

How about this great 1930s quilt full of fantastic prints? Too late - this one's mine!
