  • Try a NEW learning Experience! Learn how to make baskets, sew, knit, and quilt at one of the Leon Historical Society's Amish-English Events. Both English and Amish teachers share their world and skills with you at these events. Please come for the day and enjoy seeing and learning how things are done in the Amish and the Modern world. Get involved and make a basket, or sew a tote bag, or knit a neck scarf, or quilt a pot holder. Enjoy seeing how different and yet how similar our ways are. This week, we are going to learn how to spin yarn. You will learn what part of the fleece is spun and why. What type of fiber makes what type of yarn and why it is important to know. A discussion on dying yarn and fleece preparation and care of natural fiber yarn is included. Then you are going to make a neck scarf. Start with just a basic knit design or pick a pattern and see where it takes you. This week's homemade lunch consists of: gumbo or hamburger soup, bread with homemade butter, and cookies. Drinks will be coffee, tea, soft drink or water. There will be Amish Donuts and coffee, tea or water served at 9am to start off the work day! Pre-Registration is needed! Call 716-296-5709 or 716-257-5272 to register now! Cost for day is $30 per Saturday, per person. Classes run from 9am to 4pm. All necessary supplies are provided, so you can take home a project from each day! Lunch is available for an additional $5 or you may bring your own.
