In looking for some enjoyable and inexpensive activities for our clients and their families, this time of year offers some great opportunities for everyone. We say, “Spend time enjoying the fall color changes right here in northern Indiana!” You may have noticed that not only do the trees change to some beautiful reds and golds, but the angle of the sunlight shifts at this time of year giving us fresh color tones and different shadow patterns, all for our viewing pleasure. Not only is nature entertaining, but studies show that spending time in it is good for us, both mentally and physically.

This year’s quilt show drew entries from Allen County and neighboring states. There was such a variety of both vintage and modern quilts, larger bed size and wall hangings, kit quilts, traditional and modern designs.
