Welcome To A Touch of Amish

Welcome to A TOUCH OF AMISH ONLINE.  We are the oldest quilt shop in the Chicagoland area and continue to provide inspiration and excitement to all quilters.  The industry certainly has changed in twenty-five years and I am even more passionate about quilting than I was then.  The shop is wonderful with the best collection of fabrics and most capable and creative employees.  How exciting to be part of an business with such a positive feeling.

We have made changes in our shop operations.  The wonderful newsletter that I produced is a thing of the past.  It was costly to produce and mail.  We are encouraging everyone to add their name to our email list.  Because of our new method of operation we are also hoping to be more spontaneous.  We are making an effort to offer more FREE demonstrations because we know, in this economy, that is a logical step.

Share with us your thoughts and needs.  We might not always be able to solve your problems but we will surely try.

Our Edyta Quilt Club made a quilt for Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts in honor of her becoming an American citizen.  We made stars and Debbie set in blocks to resemble a flag.  The design was drawn by Lynn.  What an exciting moment for us and she was so happy!

We are a TOP SHOP!  A Touch of Amish shop was proud to have been featured as one of ten outstanding quilt shops in the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of the Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler.  We have been in business for over twenty-three years.

The dedication of the staff to continuously present outstanding quilt projects is evident as you view the many beautiful quilting displays throughout the shop.   The shop offers something special and enticing for everyone—be they a novice beginner or an accomplished, experienced quilter.  You are in for a treat when you see the large variety of delectable fabric choices, a multitude of new books and individual patterns, the latest notions, threads, and battings, and the latest sewing techniques and methods presented in the classes.  Don’t hesitate to ask any of the staff for help in selecting fabric or patterns that can be used either in a class project or at home.  As your sewing machine “hums” throughout 2012, you have a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends, learn the latest quilting techniques, and create a “quilting treasure.”  Happy Quilting!
