Quilting & Fabric
We are a quilter’s dream destination!
There are a lot of things that the Shipshewana area is well-known for, and our quilts and fabric stores are at the top of that list! Whether you’re new to quilting or an old pro, we’re sure you’ll love the variety of experiences and shops we have to offer here in Amish Country.
Whatever the size your quilting group, Shipshewana welcomes you! Stay in one of our local hotels where you’ll be able to set-up your group in variable-sized event spaces and enjoy the hotel amenities. Don’t forget to leave time for the girls to explore shopping, dining and entertainment!
AMISH QUILTING BEES
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to participate in an old-fashioned Amish quilting bee? Beginners and pros alike can try their hand at hand-quilting an Amish made quilt at a Shipshewana Amish home. Available during Quilt Festival or other times of the year (groups of 8 or more).
ANNUAL QUILT FESTIVAL
One of our biggest events of the year, the Quilt Festival in June draws thousands of visitors to enjoy the Quilt and Vendor Show, product vendors and special local shopping deals. 200 qulits will be on display and judged. Come and be inspired, add to your fabric collection, and collaborate with fellow quilters from all over the country.
SHOP QUILTS & FABRICS
One of the most frequently asked questions here in the Visitors Center is “where can I find quilts and fabric?” We have dozens of area stores that offer up both traditional Amish fabrics as well as other contemporary styles. There are also stores where you can buy vintage or new Amish quilts. Stop into the Visitors Center for a brochure or click the link below to see the online list.
