2013 Quilt Giveaway on New Years Eve
Celebrating the 101st Birthday of the Round Barn at Amish Acres
Visit Amish Acres this year and register for the 2013 Commemorative Round Barn Quilt that celebrates The Round Barn Theatre building's 101st birthday. This commemorative king sized quilt will be given away New Year's Eve from the stage of The Round Barn Theatre. All visitors to Amish Acres during the year may register to win this hand stitched king size quilt.
Originally built in in 1912, the majestic round barn was dismantled and moved to Amish Acres in 1996 to house Plain and Fancy, a Broadway musical written in 1955. Now over 100 musicals have bee produced on the Joseph Stein Stage, named after the show's author who went on to write his masterpiece, Fiddler on the Roof.
For a number of years Amish Acres has been giving away a king size quilt stitched by Joy Johnson to commemorate milestones at the historic farm. For four of the last five decades, Joy Johnson, has been Amish Acres quilter in residence (she has quilted in the Gross Daadi House for 40 years and made 591 quilts), if the Round Barn Quilt resembles the previous quilts, Joy will have poured 758 hours into this creation using 800 yards of thread. It is a symbol of the labor of love Amish Acres is for many of us who have invested our lives educating, entertaining and enlightening three generations.
You can see the quilt come to life throughout the year as Joy Johnson, Amish Acres master quilter, stitches it in the Gross Daadi House. You'll visit with Joy during the guided tour of the historic farmstead.
