Last weeks unseasonal heat wave is behind us (finally) and comfortable temps are back. Yippee! And tomorrow is the first day of summer, which means a day trip here or there exploring the abundance our area has within a short drive.
In case you are looking for something “quilty” to do on a local level, consider making a day trip to Shipshewana for the annual quilt festival. Beginning Wednesday June 21 thru Saturday June 24, the town swells with quilters from all over the country hosting the 2017 Shipshewana Quilt Festival.
This year, the men are taking over the festival. Nationally known quilters Ricky Tims, Rob Appell, Jerry Granata and Doug Leko along with Mark Dunn owner of MODA will headline the show with years of experience thru daily lectures. And those piano tunes by Ricky…..awesome.
The festival includes over 300 quilts, plenty of vendors, and all things quilty appealing to any style…….whether modern, art or traditional there is something for everyone. For more information check out their website: http://www.shipshewanaquiltfest.com/
