Shipshewana Scott Elementary School, Thursday, June 21, 2018 10 am - 4 pm

SchoolhouseThe Shipshewana Quilt Festival has teamed up with Shipshewana Scott Elementary School to bring you a day of quilting "edutainment".

Where else than a local school itself would you enjoy such an opportunity?


With multiple subjects taught simultaneously, you will have endless opportunities to learn about the hottest new tools, techniques and technology.

Your classes will start and end with actual school announcements!

Your schoolhouse registration will include a gourmet box lunch and entrance to your choice of over 100 sessions.

Each session is held in its own classroom with presentations by a variety of nationally and locally known educators, artists and entertainers.


Kaye England, Klaudeen Hansen, Penny Haren and More!

Please note: the booklet is not available prior to Festival.

Class topics are divided into three types:

  • Educational topics will cover the fundamentals of quilting
  • Technique sessions will show you different approaches to creating your projects
  • Product classes will demonstrate how the latest notions and tools can make your quilting easier and more accurate


To prepare for your action-packed day, you must pick up your Schoolhouse Booklet at the registration desk in the Shipshewana Event Center. This may be done beginning on Tuesday, June 19 at 12 noon and must be done prior to attendance on Thursday, June 21.

Your schoolhouse booklet will list the full selection of classes, including times, instructors and topics. In the booklet there will also be a page to help you plan your day. With so much to learn and the flexibility to choose the topics when they best fit your schedule, we have left the timing of a lunch break up to you.

To participate in Schoolhouse, you must enroll by June 10, 2018. Schoolhouse registration is not available at on-site enrollment.

A separate enrollment is required for each participant regardless of age.

The following information is provided to clarify the processes that have been adopted by the Shipshewana Quilt Festival for instructors at Schoolhouse. Because of the interest in teaching and the desire to offer high quality sessions, the Education Committee has adopted a proposal and approval process for instructors.

The Request for Proposals is posted on the web site late summer with a deadline of mid-fall for the next calendar year's show. The application deadline for consideration for next year's show is October 31. This allows all involved in the process at least 6 months to plan for the event. Instructor decisions are made early winter followed by notifications to all applicants.

The show maintains a contact list of those wishing to receive notification of Request of Proposal availability and will forward you information when it becomes available. To add your name to this list, please e-mail your contact information to or fill in the form at and check to be added to the "Instructor/Educator Information" email list.

The organizers do identify alternate selections in the case of last minute cancellations. Should you desire to be considered for this list, please contact Education Committee member Sue Juszczak at
