The following items will also be available: throw pillow covers, table runners, placemats, pot holders, table centers, quillows, spice mats, rugs, Amish dolls, handcrafted holiday décor, Cashew Crunch, Amish noodles, Yoder popcorn and fabric.

The show features several local artists demonstrating their work. Handmade brooms by Chris Steinhagen will be created at the show and for sale. Jo Brinkley-Chaudoir will show guests how she weaves wire around stones and beads to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Sandra L. Peterson will create collages using handmade papers and found images inspired by pictorial quilts. June Grutza will demonstrate her fine art of glass painting on Saturday and Sunday. Also, a new video about the life of the Amish will run during the show.
