Amish quilting in the Buckeye State
Ohio is home to one of the largest Amish populations in the United States. Amish in highly entrepreneurial communities like Holmes County produce a wide range of crafts and manufactured products, specializing in different businesses from furniture making or shed building to baking, sewing and quilting. The quilting tradition, while not as prominent as that in Pennsylvania, remains among many Amish in Ohio’s 4-dozen-plus communities.
In Amish communities sewing and quilting are traditional communal pastimes, and increasingly today, side jobs or even full-time work for a number of Amish women, just like woodworking is for Ohio’s many furniture artisans. Amish quilt stores can be found across the state including in Holmes County, Columbus, Cincinnati, and the Akron area.
