Work of our Hands!


One thing I know is that Lehman’s attracts the type of people who like to keep busy, who are innovative and appreciate good craftsmanship.  Its been apparent during the ongoing arts and crafts demos being put on by Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members that it ”takes one to know one’.  By that I mean that people who work with their hands, whether its to build, garden, cook, craft, repair or beautify appreciate people who do the same!  One of the best aspects of being in the Buggy Barn to do demos is meeting people who share with me their ‘art’.

I paint the farm animal murals.  I have had wonderful conversations with people about their farm experiences and the work of their hands!  It is refreshing in today’s society to hear what people are creating!  You inspire me so thank you!

We’ve made it a point to bring you a well rounded variety of artisans to share with you their knowledge and experience on a regular basis in the Buggy Barn at the Kidron store.

In the photos above you can see a curious furry visitor to the store checking out Vicki Boatright’s artwork!  Amy of Three Sister’s Wool is also pictured during a recent wool rug hooking demo.  The hitching post mural is the backdrop for the quilters as they were preparing for the MCC Relief Sale not long ago in the Buggy Barn.

Please take a moment to check out Lehman’s Event Calendar on this blog to see the upcoming demonstrations.  You will find potters, painters, fiber arts, blacksmithing, wood carvers and wool rug hooking to name a few.  So as you plan your trip to Ohio Amish Country make sure you keep the demos in mind to add just a little something more to your visit!

If you are in Kidron this Friday please stop in the Buggy Barn and say hi to me.  I am just finishing up a mural of a ewe and her lambs to keep company with the assorted farm animals already painted indoors and out.

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
