Wow!  Thanks for sharing such and interesting article.  I guess it is good that the Amish are giving work to the Asians, but sad to hear how little they make.

Judy Thanks for sharing this article.  We have visited Lancaster, PA often over the years.  I saw this happening quite a few years ago while in one of the "Amish Quilt Shops".  A van load of ladies were delivering said quilts to the shop to be sold.  They hustled them in to a back room to take care of business.  After we came home I told several folks of our experience and no one wanted to hear it .  I have waited patiently for this to surface .   I have mixed emotions about this.  Yes they are beautiful quilts, well made but not  Amish Made as all the signs would led you to believe.    Ruth
