Delaware Quilts

            Delaware Quilts started as a fun web site in September of 1997 for me to post information about a quilt retreat I was arranging for some internet friends. Those retreats ended up lasting twenty-four years and went from one retreat a year in Lewes Delaware to two a year in Bird-in-Hand Pa a few years later. There were years we had three and four and even one year there were five retreats. I hosted a total of sixty-five retreats attended by a total of 299 ladies from four different countries and at least 31 different US states. It was a life changing experience for me, and I am thankful that I did it. I made some friends that I hope will stay with me for the rest of my life. After covid put a stop to our retreats two years in a row, I decided it was time retire from retreating. Do I miss it, you bet I do, especially all my ladies!

            One thing my ladies always enjoyed while retreating was fabric shopping. Below is a list of some of the stores where the retreaters used to shop for their fabrics.

Home and Fabric, Lititz". I have not been to Weaver's in three years, so perhaps this is another one of
the lovely Amish/Mennonite stores which has been bought out by the Englishers. I wish I could hop in the
car and go check it out, but for now I'll stay home and wait out this covidcrud. Once the crud is done and
I've had my shots, we will be checking things out up there.

Our retreat home away from home has been Amish View Inn and Suites
3125 Old Philadelphia Pike (Rt 340) mid-way between Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse.
Here are directions to the Amish View Inn

For me it will always be my home away from home in Lancaster, and I know that holds true for a lot of my retreat ladies also.
