Lancaster PA Quilt Show


Hello everyone,

It was four fun days with the quilt girls and quilters from across the US. We were at the  Lancaster PA quilt show, which featured the very latest in quilt making supplies, antique and new quilts, and quilt-related gifts. We also went to all the quilt shops around the area. I have never shopped so much from morning till night! We shopped on the way up and shopped on the way back.  This trip was very well organized and planned by Mary Kay from the Clamshell quilt guild.

If you have never been to the Amish Country, it is beautiful, and a must see! Our first night there, we ate at one of the Amish family homes…  OMG, the food was delicious! Everything homemade. I did buy their applesauce and strawberry preserves, along with the homemade peanut butter. 

Here are a few pictures of us quilt girls having fun shopping… (Shh don't tell the husbands)

We needed a little break in between 
This last picture is of the Old Country Store.  This is where we went on Friday night for midnight madness, and I won the raffle (yay). I won two layer cake packs and a $25 gift card - awesome! 

It is now official I belong to the AQS - American Quilter's Society. If you want to discover the latest in quilt related products then the AQS QuiltWeek at Lancaster is the ideal place. This show helps you get acquainted with the new technologies and latest techniques and designs that are on the market. They also offers the best deals in the industry. The exhibitors of the show will display their new products and art work right there in front of you.

Here are some pictures  I took of the Amish Country...  The farm lands
are gorgeous.  It's so peaceful and beautiful!  
We will be coming back next year!!!
