Tell your story with one of our barn quilts. Whether it's a quilt with your favorite design or flower, a reminder of someone special to you, or a quilt to show off your patriotism - American Barn Quilts has it!
Barn quilts have a rich history dating back as far as the 1800s. Here at American Barn Quilts, we are preserving this history by using advanced technology to provide vivid, high-resolution, long-lasting, outdoor printed barn quilts that can be quickly installed and even changed out should a different message be needed. All of our quilts are printed on high-quality vinyl making it easy for anyone to hang on their barn, house, or even garage.
We want to thank Mackenzie's Animal Sanctuary once again for sponsoring this event and providing us with Santa Paws! All leashed dogs are welcome and encouraged at this year's Country Living Expo and Holiday Tack Sale. Stop by with your furry friends for a photo opportunity with Santa Paws!
Spotlight on MAS:
Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary, the Mid West’s largest sheltered no-kill sanctuary, was founded by the Azzar family in August of 1999 after the passing of their beloved dog Mackenzie.
Our Goal is to save dogs in need and place them in loving homes.
Our Dream is to give these dogs the love and companionship all dogs deserve and, in Mac’s name, give them a home along the way.
Check out their currently adoptable dogs here:

Tomorrow is the BIG day! It is always exciting right up to the end as we make preparations and add the last minute vendors. This year, ALPHA Equestrian is our last vendor to sign up - but that is all GOOD. Nelly got her first shipment of her new book, just in the nick of time, and will be signing copies personally at the event. This looks like a great read so be sure to stop in to see her and all of our fantastic vendors. We could not do this without all of their support!
See you Saturday!
Here we are again two days before the event! Unbelievable. Lots of great vendors this year, including a host of new vendors that we are excited to welcome. Out Side In will be there and they are providing a "Make Your Own Stick Horse" for a small donation - be sure to stop by before the 1PM Stick Horse Show - all ages are welcome! Judge Doreen is busy preparing patterns and can't wait to see what our competitors bring!
We especially want to thank our sponsors - including our newest sponsor - MEIJER! Meijer is sponsoring the Michigan High School Rodeo Association and our Stick Horse Arena.
We have a number of awesome gifts available for our charity fund raising efforts, including a pair of Thomas Rhett Concert Tickets, so make sure to find a volunteer who will be exchanging tickets for our drawings throughout the day! We have jewelry, Gift Certificates, Horse Coolers and so much more. The proceeds of the tickets will all go to Michigan 4-H!
Can't wait to see everyone on Saturday.
All ages are welcome! Bring your stick horse and best show duds! The show will be judged by Doreen Andersen of Quest Training Stables and ribbons and awards will be handed out by Chloe Yonker - the current Michigan High School Rodeo Association Queen! Don't miss this
