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, Stand faithful to your Measures of the Gift of God, which cometh from him, who was, before the World was made; that ye may stand over the World, and all the betraying Spirits in it, that nothing may reign, but Life in you all. And keep out of Janglings and Parties, in that, which is able to keep you above them all to God; in that all wait. And the Bustlings of the World keep out of, in the Covenant of Peace with God.
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.
