BY TOM PARKER
While Nigerian Dwarf goats are prodigious breeders with an average of three to four kids per litter, anything more than that is topping the scale. Recently, a doe owned by Kayleen and Scott Lafl en of rural Barnes delivered fi ve kids, a fairly unusual occurrence that both delighted and complicated their lives. “The mom couldn’t take all five so we had to bottlefeed the two males,” Kayleen Lafl en said. “She’d had litters of three babies before but five? I wouldn’t have thought it possible.”

Downhome Quilting opens in Dearborn Village

Shelley Wilson, left, owner of Dearborn Village’s Downhome Quilting, bought her Gammill longarm machine from Norma Megenity, who has taught her how to use it.

BY TOM PARKER

 

“Old quilters never die, they just go batty,” says a sign in the newly-opened Downtown Quilting at Dearborn Village. While the saying is a humorous play of words that any quilter would immediately understand, an equal number of quilters would attest to the truth of it, especially when it comes to the fi nal stage of sewing together the top, batting and backing. Doing that with a kingsized quilt on a standard consumer sewing machine is enough to drive a quilter, well, batty.
