This new quilt exhibit features 13 quilts from the local community. The Heritage Village quilters, whose hand sewn quilt is raffled off each December, loaned ten of the quilts. The other three are recent acquisitions to our collection. These quilts date from the late 1800s to 2007 and include patterns such as, “Drunkard’s Path”, “Capital T”, and “Irish Chain”. Other quilts are contemporary using fabric with candy prints, dolls, and butterflies.

November 7th: John Tipton Program and Dessert
7:00 pm
Join us to meet John Tipton as he looks back on his life in the Indiana Territory. He was a War of 1812 Veteran who fought at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. He went into politics and was an Indiana agent. In the early 1830's he was asked to take a militia unit to attempt to negotiate with the Pottawatomie to move West but instead rounded them up and marched them West with no authorization.  His story illustrates the tension and issues between white settlers and Native Americans as white settlement expanded during the first decades of the 19th Century.

December 9th: Christmas Doll Luncheon
12:00 pm
Come join our guest speaker, Judy Harris Wright, as we venture back to our childhood and rediscover the dolls that may have been under your Christmas tree. Judy has been a doll collector since the age of 9 when her Mother gave her a Madame Alexandra 8" doll from the Little Woman series. She told her mother, "This doll is just too pretty to play with! I am going to be a collector" and this started a lifelong love of doll collecting. Judy has over 300 dolls in her collection and will share with us her very special Christmas dolls.
Lunch is a tortilla wrap sandwich buffet and includes fruit salad, pasta salad, vegetable sticks, drink, and dessert.
