In January 2000 we opened Amish Country Quilts to offer people living away from Lancaster, PA a convenient means to purchase the best handmade quilts available here. Over the years since that opening, we have shipped quilts to wonderful customers across the country and around the world, and have developed close working relationships with an outstanding group of quilt makers.
In January 2014 we restructured Amish Country Quilts from being an internet quilt shop to becoming a market-place where selected quilt makers directly offer quilts for sale. The quilt makers offering quilts for sale are the same quilt makers we have worked with over the years.
At its founding we looked at Amish Country Quilts as our retirement business, and after 14 years of operation we felt it was time to reduce our participation in the day-to-day business activities. We now are responsible just for the improvement and maintenance of the Amish Country Quilts web site and for and providing advice and guidance to the quilt makers using our web site.
So when you purchase a quilt on this web site you are purchasing it from the quilt maker who listed the quilt on our web site, rather than from us. The quilt makers have become our customers, paying us a small commission on their sales.
We expect that you will find it a delight to shop for and purchase quilts on our web site. But it you have any kind of problem please let us know.
A special thank you to all of you who purchased quilts from us from 2000 through 2013. We appreciate having had the opportunity to serve you.
