TUNKHANNOCK — Although the rain and soggy weather kept most people off the streets and sidewalks, there was still plenty to do indoors for the Tunkhannock Quilt and Artisan Walk Saturday, Oct. 3. Skits in a storefront window; book, bake and craft sales; lectures; quilting demonstrations and art exhibits were spread throughout the downtown. The first-ever event was hosted by the Tunkhannock Business and Professional Association, with the assistance of the Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau. It continues a tradition started 14 years ago by the former Endless Mountains Quiltworks.
