TARRYTOWN, N.Y., April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amish Spirit Quilts, a purveyor of authentic Amish quilts based in Tarrytown, NY, has seen a large spike in international orders. Amish Spirit Quilts works with artists within the Pennsylvania Amish community to bring handmade quilts to the international market. The quilt making season is about to begin and already Amish Spirit has seen orders from as far off as Australia.
Amish Spirit Quilts source their quilts from members of a small Amish community in Pennsylvania. This community has been creating beautiful quilts for generations and their work stacks up against some of the best made quilts in the world. Each quilt produced in the Amish community is a one of kind piece which takes at least two months to produce. Stitched together from thousands of pieces of material and made of the finest grade cotton, each Amish quilter only produces five or six finished quilts per year. Spring marks the start of the quilt selling season. Amish women do the actual cutting, piecing and quilting over the winter and this past winter was a long one in Pennsylvania.
One of the reasons for the spike in international orders no doubt stems from the fact that handmade quilts are an affordable piece of art. Most large American fine art museums hold handmade quilts as part of their permanent collection with exhibitions showcasing particular quilting styles or themes not uncommon. This year, Amish Spirit Quilts has seen international orders come in from Switzerland, Turkey, Australia and even the Onondoga Nation. The Amish quilts for sale this year will showcase different patterns including Log Cabins, Tumbling Blocks, a one of a kind Moonglow patterned quilt, a 10 stitch per inch Queen Ann's Star, and a masterpiece Tree of Life quilt. Amish Spirit expects this year's stock to be their strongest and most beautiful yet. They are delighted that people from abroad are beginning to recognize the artistry and beauty of authentic Amish quilts.
Amish Spirit Quilts is a purveyor of handmade quilts produced by the Pennsylvania Amish community. Amish Spirit works with the Amish quilters to bring one of a kind hand stitched traditional Amish quilts to the international market.
