Little Helpers Quilt Shop, Shipshewana, IN

In May, I had the pleasure of spending a day exploring Shipshewana, a town in the heart of Amish country in IN. We particularly enjoyed our visit to the Little Helpers Quilt Shop which boasts a large variety of Amish hand-made crafts including beautiful quilts, rugs, jams and jellies, baskets, bird houses, pillows, mail boxes and more. The store is located at 1,030N 1,000W on the outskirts of Shipshewana. If you are in the area, allow plenty of time to take a good look in this wonderful store. The Amish lady in the store gave me permission to take photos and to post these so that you can have a virtual tour.

The bed was piled high with beautifully made quilts all hand-quilted and there were quilts hanging all over the store. If you ever decide to purchase a traditional bed quilt, the choice here is fantastic and the workmanship outstanding. As well as quilts, there were quilt racks and wooden quilt hangers.

I loved this Tumbling Blocks quilt with the blocks falling away at the bottom. On the shelf are lovely quillows which are pillows that unfold into quilts. Finally, here’s a sampling of baskets and birdhouses. Altogether a delightful stop on our outing.

  1. We purchased a Rhythm USA motion, musical wall clock a few years ago from your store. Do you have a record of our purchase? Our clock has stopped working, and I need proof of purchase to get if fixed. Let me know if you have a record of my purchase.

    • I don’t think so. I don’t have a store. I am a retired quilt teacher, but wrote some blogs about the quilt shops that I visited on my travels. Please contact the shop directly. I hope you are successful.
