More Shipshewana Fun

In the last couple of days I've been doing some sewing, shopping and walking around town enjoying the sunshine and the sights of Shipshewana.

This is mostly Kaffe Fassett and Phillip Jacobs fabric. There are so many gorgeous fabrics that it takes several trips back to Lollys to decide what to buy.


Here is more fabric with a nice selection of Kim McLean patterns.  This is not all of the Kaffe fabric at Lollys.


This is the window display at The Cuddle Shop in the basement of the Davis Mercantile Building.  Cuddle has the same look and feel as minkee. 



Any quilter that has been to Shipshewana knows about "the boat".   The boat is filled with fat quarters, and you never know what you are going to find there.  This time our group has a coupon to purchase our fat quarters for $1each through our entire stay.  I've been boating twice so far this trip.  This shop is filled with sale fabric from Lollys.


Now doesn't that look like fun?


Yoders has even more fabric. 


Here is a cute display of rick-rack in Yoders.  That's more fabric in the background.  Both Yoders and Lollys has some yarn, too.
 
The Amish were in town today.


An antique store; love the architecture here.




More antiques......


Another interesting shop.


Some quilts for sale.


The Blue Gate Restaurant. 


Beautiful wooden cabinet inside the Blue Gate with all kinds of things for sale.



And remember..........
 
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
