  • 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. 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. Quilting! Quilting! Quilting!: Amish Style and English Style. Stop by to try your hand at both methods. The Amish ladies from the Quilt Shop in Leon Township and the English ladies from the Quilter's Club are teaching. Both have quilted for many years and have entirely different ways to "Get the Job Done." The Amish ladies have, what some call, old-fashioned tools and techniques. One of the Quilt Club ladies has patented tools to improve modern quilt making. In this dual class, each participant will make a hot pan holder or a pieced pillow square, by hand or machine. 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. Pre-Registration is needed! Call 716-296-5709 or 716-257-5272 to register now! Additional $5 gets you a homemade lunch of: pizza, chips, pie and cookies. Drinks are 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!
