As a part of the Shipshewana Quilt Festival on June 19-23, six local retailers are participating in the “Shop Hop,” where, upon registering for a “passport,” you can visit each of the retailers who will have all kinds of goodies for you…from expert knowledge to amazing quilting fabrics and accouterments.
This week and next, LaGrange County Convention & Visitors Bureau is devoting one of our blogs to two retailers involved in the Shop Hop.

2012 Shop Hop Location #4: Homespun Treasures
Homespun Treasures is located on block northeast of the SR 9 and US 20 intersection in LaGrange. Owners Karen and Steve Eash renovated the 1920’s building five years ago and moved the quilting business from its former location. This year will mark their ninth year in business. The new location provides space for a private classroom that allows for a variety of ongoing classes for area quilters. Class projects continually are on display from past and present classes. A long arm quilting service is available at the store to help complete projects. Kits are also available.
Homespun Treasures is located at:
205 East Wayne Street
LaGrange, IN 46761
