Loose Threads: Shopping in Shipshewana

Shopping in Shipshewana

There is lots of fabric in Shipshewana besides other types of cute shops. Since I am there for only a few days, I mostly visit the quilt shops. These photos are from Yoders Department Store.



So many pre-cuts to choose from. There were so many jelly rolls and charm packs it was hard to choose. 


I could spend an entire week just roaming through this store.


They have a great selection of Creative Grid rulers. 


This is a cute Christmas display with things hanging on a clothesline and two wash tubs full of fat quarters. 



After looking at this photo of vintage looking table linens, I wish I would have bought one. 


This cute Christmas display has lots of towels and aprons. 

 

 We had a great time visiting with old friends and meeting new friends and enjoying the local foods and shops.   I'll share more of the retreat with you over the next few days! 

                                               THANKS FOR STOPPING BY FOR A VISIT!

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Hi LuAnne
It was fun visiting with you at Shipshe retreat. I'm the one with the hexies in brown and stars.
Now back home to reality.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I spent most of an afternoon in Yoder's last August when we visited. We thought we would spend more time at the flea market, but Yoders was much better. that and Lolly's!

I would love to have this kind of shop near home. You can't find any of them in Spain...! One day I will go to USA and I will visit many shops like this one.

Thanks for sharing

we English gals are SO jealous of your wonderful shops!
I love your present header, just perfect for fall and I spy that gorgeous quilt which I fell in love with way back. I did buy the book and I did start collecting fabrics. As soon as I get settled in my new sewing room, that will be one of the first projects I start on!

It looks like a lot of damage could be done to my bank account in this store! WOW!
