While in Lancaster we visited “The Quilt & Fabric Shop“. If you want to make a quilt, this is a great place to shop for your fabrics. In addition to the great quilt fabrics, they had one whole room filled with fabrics that the Amish women use to make their family’s clothing. The whole side of one of the rooms was filled with black fabric for the men’s pants and jackets and coats.
We pulled up to the store and parked. While I was waiting for my husband to finish his cigarette, an Amish woman drove into the parking lot…in this….
She parked that buggy, jumped down and tied the horse up without blinking an eye. I would have loved to spend the afternoon with her talking about sewing and quilting. For some reason, I feel as if I could learn sooooo much from an afternoon with her….but what would she learn from me?
