It Takes a Village to Raise a Quilt
You’ve probably heard it takes a village to raise a child? Exhausted parents quickly learn they can’t provide everything their kid needs and are grateful for what other people give to their child—whether it’s a teacher explaining fractions or a coach teaching them what teamwork looks like. Kids thrive in a supportive village.
Well, what you may not know is that it takes a community to create one of our gorgeous quilts, too. Nearly every step of the process is done by a different person, or several people working together. Our owner, John Lapp, relies on his mother, Ann Lapp, and her extensive connections in the Amish and Mennonite communities to supply quilts to the Family Farm Handcrafts shop.
