What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Orpha Beachy is this year's featured
quilter at the Woman's Club quilt show.
At first glance, anyone would say that Orpha Beachy has some beautiful quilts. But spend a little time with her, and her quilts come to life in the form of a personal narrative. Humble in her ability, Beachy has used quilting primarily to help others. She has only a few in her personal collection, and two in recent years have been People’s Choice Award winners from the Crittenden County Extension Homemakers Quilt Show.
