Plain-dressing Quakers TodayI think the best place to see plain Friends is among the photos taken at the Conservative Quaker Gatherings. Martin Kelley's photos from the Gathering of Conservative Friends 2009 hosted by Keystone Fellowship Monthly Meeting of Ohio Yearly Meeting in Lancaster, PA.

I also have a webpage of photographs of early twentieth-century and mid-1800s plain-dressing Friends.
Thea Pollock, in memoriam
Thea, dear sister in Christ and gentle soul, left this life earlier this year. I and those who have known her will miss her loving presence. Obituary available here.
FRIENDS, Get not Knowledge in the unsanctified and unregenerated part; for that which is not sanctified in your own particulars, will not be to them, that it is declared to. Neither can ye feel your Words go from you with Joy and Life, that come from the unsanctified and unregenerated Part; for that Part will glory and boast, and vaunt itself, and say, This have I done, and that have I spoken, and not glory in the Lord. So, this satisfies not, and the Spirit in Prison is not refreshed by those things.
I am not Amish or Mennonite, but some people who come to my website are interested in knowing more about these groups. I can recommend these books as authoritative and relatively inexpensive sources of further information.
