I arrived in Shipshewana this afternoon, and everything is just as wonderful as I remembered. I've seen several friends that I haven't seen in ages. By the time I checked into my room at the Farmstead Inn, I only had a little over a half hour to check out Yoders. This is the first time I've been there since they expanded their fabric department. Many of the buildings in town are all decorated for Christmas both outside........
Here are some photos of the fabric department. There is a lot to see, and I know I missed a lot this first time there, but this will give you an idea of what the expanded fabric department looks like. We can walk to Yoders from the sewing room at the Farmstead, so most days we are there and at Lollys so there will be more chances to take photos.
Yoder's yarn department has grown since my last visit. I love this knit scarf. The yarn to make this is available in lots of different colors. I might have to make one of these.
These quilts are hanging in the entryway of Yoders. The baskets on this one are pieced with cotton, and the applique' is wool.
I finished the evening with dinner at the Blue Gate with a good friend. And, of course there was pie. I had raspberry cream tonight. Sorry, I forgot to take a photo. I might just have to have another piece so you can see what it looks like.
This is the tree at the Blue Gate Restaurant.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
