    is it only me who thinks this way? my son is attending school in upsate new york, it is in the middle of no where. i spoke to him ealier today and he said he had gone to church but it took him forever to get back home. he said when you get behind a horse and buggy there is nothing you can do but drive slow. i thought he was kidding because it is so rural then i asked what he was talking about and he said he lives by belfast new york there is a big amish community there. my first response was are there any quilt shops? he didn't answer. LOL

    lol yea I think that way. When I first found out we were moving to Ft. Campbell, KY I asked several people on the army wives board that I was a member on if there were any quilt shops around Hopkinsville because there is a fairly large Amish community there. No one knew!

    Justwanna quilt - My DH was stationed at Ft Campbell when we were married 33 years ago. We were back about 4 years ago and were able to find the trailer we lived in, in a subdivision down 41A toward Clarksville. Was astonished at how much it had grown! Unfortunately, I wasn't into quilting at the time. :(

    Since I started quilting again, my first question when i go anywhere is, "Hmmm, I wonder if there are any quilt shops in the area."

    In fact, I already found one that is actually on my way home from DS tomorrow.

    So Trupeach, you are definitely NOT the only one that thinks that way. :thumbup:

    I am from near Holmes county Ohio. There is a serious Amish community there. They use back roads mostly. Fortunately for everyone, this helps the horses and the cars.

    Lots of shops ( ! ) The Amish community depends on the "English" as part of their economy. PS they do not pay into nor take out of Social Security. They take care of their own. Interesting books written about their lifestyle in today's world, written in novel form.
