    I was in Walmart's fabric section today and the clerk mentioned that the Mennonite ladies in our area had quit buying their fabric there. (It is the only fabric source in the town.) They had told her that they were now buying their fabric on line from Salt Lake City. Does anyone know what store that would be?

    I'm just lurking for the answer also. They must have been spending a lot of $ for WM to feel the pinch!

    They must, my Bernina dealer is Mennonite and many of the models requires the use of a computer. They also place their orders online.

    Yes, there is a Mennonite site where a friend suggested that I would find an old recipe that my Grandma used to make. One of the lovely ladies on this site sent me what must be the original one that I loved as a child. More or less a whole fruit in potato dough..can't find the recipe right now or I'd share it. Very filling, can't eat more than one.

    Who you are most likely thinking of are the Amish, who do not at all have electricity, cars, or telephones.

    Couldn't they have friends or family who use the computer? Wait, when did they get electricity? Do I have them confused with the Amish?

    It's the Amish that doesn't use electricity or anything that requires electricity. They also don't drive cars. The Mennonites use electricity and also have cars, tractors and things like we englishers have. We have several Amish that live in our vicinity. Also I am about 30-40 miles either direction from 2 Mennonite stores that sell everything from bulk foods to fabrics. All the frills. The only color automobiles they drive are black. No bells and whistles.
