I’m Fort Wayne native Lois Levihn author of Around the frame. I grew up close to Waynedale graduating from Wayne High School and IPFW. I’ve been a writer since 2009 when the new owners Alex and Michael were looking for new columnists.
I enjoy the community spirit of Waynedale. I look forward to passing out vintage postcards along the annual Memorial Day parade route and taking in all of the booths at the Community Picnic each August.
Quilts have always been important to me. I love the stories surrounding them, the techniques used in making them, and the happy faces when a beloved quilt is restored and returned to its family.
I am the owner of Born Again Quilts a restoration studio and vintage quilt gallery located at 4005 South Wayne Ave. In 2013 I received a façade grant from the City of Fort Wayne to enhance the studio’s appearance. What could be better than to restore quilts in a restored building? Receiving an “ARCH”ie commendation for the rehabilitation of a commercial building.
I support the Allen County SPCA by taking donated quilts, restoring and selling them to benefit their work.
