From Sheep to Clothing & Quilts at the Illinois Amish Heritage Center

June 06, 2020

Our “Sheep to Clothing & Quilts" event will be held Saturday, June 6, 2020 at the Illinois Amish Heritage Center from 7am - 4pm.  It will feature the process of taking wool from the sheep to spinning, weaving into cloth and then being made into clothing and quilts.  Sheep shearing, cleaning and processing wool, spinning, weaving, and quilting will be demonstrated.  A Petting zoo, pony rides, food concessions and other activities will also be featured along with an exhibit of early quilts and coverlets.

You can find us on Rt. 133 East of Arthur. If you are coming off of I-57 take the Arcola exit and head west on Rt. 133 through Chesterville. You'll see us on the right!
