I just didn't want to put too much on at a time. Didn't want to flood you with too many pictures at a time. I have several files of pictures from ever since I got my computer 3 years ago. Before that it is all on 35 mm pictures.

    I take an order up to Kalona at least every three weeks and sometimes every two weeks so there is a lot of stuff. Just don't want anyone to think I am overbearing with too much info.

    All these pictures are things I have taken to Kalona over the last two years. I do have alot more.

    FYI my avatar is a large tote I sold last year to Yoders in Kalona
    OH! I don't think you would be overbearing with too much info! We love INFO! And PICTURES!! (or I do, and I think most of us do!) You do wonderful work! Now, I want to go visit Kalona just to get in that store! :D

    Generally $7 I know they are worth more but they aren't worth anything if I make them and they don't sell! So I price them to what I would want to pay.

    Sorry she closed the shop last year. So I don't have any on sale right now. I do plan to get some done and put on my website again.

    My best friend lives in Muscatine, IA. I went to Kalona for the first time last Labor Day. Towns like that need to be appreciated. Hit the quilt shops there, time well spent and will probably go again. The main street was all tore up when I was there last, hopefully it is fixed by now. I did go to Yoder's great items. It was my understanding that the Amish and Mennonnites live on the outskirts of rural Kalona.

    Kalona is a great town for quilts. There is a museum of quilts. I always intended to stop and look at it but never have. Yes there are lots of Amish who live in the country. It is interesting to see the buggys and horses tied up to the post at JWs (grocery store) and there is an Amish blacksmith shop at the edge of town where you can usually see a few buggys and horses waiting. If you look at the houses and you don't see any electricity going to the house then it is an Amish house. You can usually tell because they sit back abit and are always wood two story frame houses. At least in our area. They probably vary from area to area. There is a school for the Amish kids you can see as you go by on the road.

    Stringtown is an Amish(Mennonite?) Store a little ways up from the Cheese Factory. They don't use electricity. they have unique lights. THey are basicallly a metal can like tube that is set in a square in the ceiling. the natural light comes down through them. They aren't very big probably about 4" across. So it is a bit unnerving or it was for me for the first few times when you go in and it seems really dark. But as you are in there your eyes adjust.
