Our next Just Takes 2 Shipshewana Quilt Retreat is November 11-15, 2015. Ann Holte is our featured teacher and lecturer (  She will be teaching two days from her book, Lancaster Diamonds. Her lecture will be held at the Davis Mercantile Auditorium. She's bringing some great quilts for eye candy !

When Jane's Quilt was in Houston in November, 1996, to introduce Dear Jane, Ann came to the booth
and asked about doing a Dear Jane retreat. Both of us were new to this quilting business. Ann and her husband Dale had the first ever Dear Jane® Quilt Retreat at her shop in Gettysburg, and we've been friends ever since. It's hard to believe that was almost 20 years ago! I was so honored to have been asked to write the introduction to Lancaster Diamonds. Gay and I are both thrilled that she will
be coming to Shipshewana!
