Pot Holder at the Leon Historical Society

Feel like winter will never end?  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.
