JCC Hosts Amish Quilt and Holiday Craft Show

Amish mini wall designs entitled “Folded Stars” are a sample of the many handmade Amish pieces available at the Amish Quilt and Holiday Craft Show.

The 15th Annual Amish Quilt and Holiday Craft Show will be held at Mr. G’s Hall from Oct. 5 – 7, 9 am – 5 pm.

Over 80 traditional Amish quilts in a variety of styles, patterns and colors will be featured at this show. New quilts are arriving daily for the show, and all are quilted by hand, as is the Amish custom.

Table displays will include a children’s table with books, crayon play aprons, wood toys, kitchen utensil aprons, play work tools and coloring books. The purse table will feature pocket purses, hand crafted purses, eyeglass cases and cloth book covers. There will be display tables of Halloween, fall, and Christmas décor. Proceeds from the sale of soft sculpture handcrafted Christmas ornaments by Barb Bicker will benefit the Fish Creek Library.

Other items for sale include: prepackaged fabric, complete pattern kits, cashew crunch, Yoder popcorn, Amish noodles, quilting books, recipe books, wall hangings, table runners, place mats, rugs, Amish dolls, baskets, pillows and quillows.

An entry fee of $1 will be charged at the door (children eight and under are free). There will be two $50 Gift Certificates for Jacksonport Craft Cottage Gifts or future Amish Quilt and Craft Shows. Winners need to be present to win.

The show is sponsored by Jacksonport Craft Cottage Gifts. For information call 920.823.2288 or visit
