About the Event
2024 Midweek USA Craft Retreat - Amish Day Out & Overnight - Monday 10 & Tuesday 11 June 2024
Featuring Nicholas Ball & Sarah Hibbert
Venue: The Amish Farm + Doubletree Resort by Hilton Hotel in Lancaster, PA, USA
This Additional Amish Day Out & Overnight Package gives you access in full to the fabulous CraftyMonkies Amish Day Out and a nights accommodation (inc breakfast on Tuesday 11 June) at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotels, Lancaster, PA.
On this fabulous CraftyMonkies Amish Day Out, we've thought about every single hour of the day to provide you with a tailor made day trip you won't find anywhere else, particularly when you remember that your guides for the day are two of the top international quilters; Sarah Hibbert and Nicholas Ball!
Our day begins with a private coach collecting us from the Doubletree Resort by Hilton Hotels, Lancaster PA and a short trip to the Amish Farm on Cypress Drive in Lancaster County. Upon arrival, we'll spend the next three hours learning more about Amish culture, but with the Quilter in mind. We'll take a 3 hour guided bus tour through the back roads of Amish Country, stop at Amish stores to give ourselves a break from the bus-ride (lots of quilts to look at and fabric stores!) There will be a 15-acre farm tour and visit to an Amish schoolhouse. Remember, you will have Sarah Hibbert and Nicholas Ball on hand to talk about fabrics and their thoughts on what you are all seeing as well as a professional guide.
Following this we'll head into the Kitchen Kettle Village where you'll have between 2 to 3 hours to choose your own lunch venue and do some shopping! There are so many wonderful shops to visit, but we feel that the Village Handmade Store with its 2,800 feet of quilting textile art and home decor may take you some time to browse! We will then hop back on our bus and head back to the Amish Farm where we will have a 45 minute house tour.
Our final stop (and we are super excited about this!) will be a dinner provided by an Amish family in their home! A proper 'cookout' JUST FOR US! We can't wait for us all to sit together, eat and talk, laugh and make memories. Finally, our bus will collect us and take us back to our hotel where your night's accommodation and breakfast the next morning are all included!
WOW! This truly promises to be a day & night to remember: we very much hope you'll factor it into your stay with us!...
