Visit the Camphill Kimberton Craft Shop for Holiday Shopping

Charlene Roth displays one of her specialty crafts - a hand-woven wool rug.  Items for sale in the Craft Shop are made in workshops at Camphill Kimberton.
The Camphill Village Kimberton Hills Craft Shop is a unique and wonderful place to do your holiday shopping. The shop features a wide range of one-of-a-kind items including woven, knitted and felted handmade crafts. Many items are made from recycled materials and are handcrafted by adults with developmental disabilities.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is located at 1601 Pughtown Road , Kimberton , Pa. The craft shop, located in the Kepler Building , is open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. After shopping, stop by the Camphill Café for lunch, located just a short walk from the shop. The café offers organic, homemade soups, sandwiches, entrees and desserts and is open Wednesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The mission at Camphill Kimberton is to encourage individuals, especially those with special needs, to discover and fulfill their greatest developmental and creative potential within a farming and handcrafting community. In valuing persons of all abilities, Kimberton Hills seeks to foster a living and working environment that is sustainable, productive and beautiful. Residents and volunteers uniquely contribute to the community through meaningful vocations such as gardening, dairy farming, and working in the café, bakery and craft workshops. As the community cares for one another, it also nurtures and improves the land by practicing biodynamic and organic agriculture and raising environmental awareness.

Gift certificates to the shop are also available. For more information about Camphill Kimberton, visit www.camphillkimberton.org. To see samples of items for sale in the craft shop, visit our Facebook page.
