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.
(To the Flock of Christ Jesus every where, to be read in their Assemblies)
. . . CHRIST saith, In me ye have Peace, in the World ye have Trouble; and therefore keep out of the Spirit of the World; let not the Spirit of the World come into you; for if ye do, ye go into Trouble both inwardly and outwardly: But if ye keep in Christ, who is not of the World, you keep your heavenly Place and Region; . . . and therefore keep in the Life in Christ. . . .
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.
