7. Amish Quilts Are World-Renowned
While Amish boys are usually taught woodworking skills, Amish girls learn how to sew. Amish quilts are almost as coveted as Amish furniture. They feature ornate, colorful designs. Surprisingly, though, the quilts that are made for themselves are quite plain and simple, and the colorful ones are made for consumers. Quilt-making is a form of socialization and relaxation for Amish women, and the finished products represent the communal and cooperative spirit of their community.
