This is what you have been asking for....
Yes... for those of you that have always wanted to visit  Amish Country - this is it...NOW is your chance!  We have just returned from Shipshewana, IN - the heart of Amish Country in the Midwest.  We have made arrangements for our stay in the Farmstead Inn & Conference Center.  Now this Inn knows all about retreats... they host them all YEAR LONG.  Quilting, sewing, scrap-booking.. you name it!  Our conference room area is LARGE, bright and equipped with 8' tables and coffee centers.  We can really spread out!

The city Chamber of Commerce is putting together a wonderful welcome package for each of you when you check-in at the hotel (3:00 p.m.)  From there you will get settled in your room  and we'll all meet up in the conference center and head out for dinner together! 
During the week you are free to come and go as you wish...take tours, shop, antique, visit Amish homes, sew, quilt, hook rugs... anything goes.  This is YOUR RETREAT... even if you DO NOT WISH TO WORK ON ANY PROJECTS... you are still invited to attend.  Use the Farmhouse Inn and the Conference Room as your "home base" and have a great time exploring.  

We are  so excited about the flea market - a 2 day event with thousands of vendors.  They even have an app for your phone... if you're looking for something in particular - you feed it into the app and it will direct you to the appropriate area within the flea market!  We remembering attending this flea market many, many years ago and it was SO MUCH FUN!  There is even a mailing center near by in case you need to ship items home.

During your stay - you will have a wonderful  hot breakfast each morning.  Then you can sew  or wander the walking paths... rent a bicycle, or head out for daily adventures.  You will eat the best home-cooked meals ever!  Have you ever had broasted chicken?  Oh my!!!  It's one of our favorites...along with home made dumplings.  Spend the day in Yoder's Dept. Store, shop the many quilt stores....  it goes on and on!  PLUS... we will have fun things for all of you also!!!
