History

The art of broom making was revived in 1972 by Norman and Joanna Schanz in a small shop in West Amana that is still here today.  The art of willow basket making and the cultivation of willow patches in the Amana Colonies was also revived by Joanna Schanz in 1977 under the guiding hand of Philip Dickel (1900-1981) the last active basket maker of the Amana Colonies.
