    I go every year, and the quilts are gorgeous works of art. Most are handquilted. It's best to go earlier in the month, because if you wait until the last day of March most of the quilts are already sold and gone.

    Quilters do not make mistakes, only variations

    IF you go, plan on eating at the Carriage House. Pretty good food and terrific desserts. Hopefully the Fabric store is still there. It was small but very good and interesting fabric. The Amish don't show up much on the streets like they did when I lived in Kansas. BUT should be a fun day. I'm not sure they like all the attention for their town either... lol

    I actually live in Yoder and we love visitors and tourists coming through our town.
