Loose Threads: Shipshewana Retreat

Shipshewana Retreat

I returned home from a fun filled week in Shipshewana, Indiana, on Sunday afternoon.  I've been at the Jane Stickle Quilt Retreat at the Farmstead Inn located there.   It was so much fun to reconnect with old friends and to make new friends.  Here are some of the photos from the Farmstead.

This photo was taken Saturday during a snow storm.  A lot of us had packed winter coats and gloves with us.  A lot of us didn't have snow boots.  I spent a lot of time drying my socks and shoes and cold feet over the heater in my room.  It was really beautiful though.  We shopped during the day and ordered pizza delivered to the sewing room our last evening there.  

This was taken on a day when it was sunny and beautiful but cool and windy.  

The next few photos are the Farmstead Inn decorated for the holidays.

This quilt is huge and is hung on the wall behind the stairway.  

This beautiful cabinet is in between the doors by the front lobby.  The Amish made furniture is just beautiful.  

This is a sign down by the breakfast room.

I'm working on getting my retreat photos up on line where you can view them.  I'll post a link when I figure it all out.  I'll post more photos from my fabric shopping and show and tell.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.  I will be spending time in the kitchen the next couple of days preparing for our family's Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

WELL, now I know 3 quilt Bloggers who attended the Retreat, plus Irene Blank. I have 4 of her patterns.
I am sooooo jealous. Think I will just pack up and move to Indiana. So glad you had a wonderful time!

It all looks lovely. We don't get much snow in England so this is amazing to see.

I had a quick visit to Shipshewana this past summer. First time and probably only time. I am sure you had a good time.
