If you're looking for a way to stay warm this winter, head over to the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds this weekend and pick yourself up a brand-new quilt.

The Great River Quilt Show kicks off Friday, September 16th at 9am, and runs through Saturday, September 17th at 4pm.

The Mississippi Valley Quilters Guild was organized in 1983 to educate and encourage members in the quilting arts; encourage high standards in color, design, and construction of the quilted medium; and to stimulate interest in quilting in the community.

This event should be the biggest Mississippi Valley Quilters Guild show yet, according to their website. The show hasn't been able to be held since 2020, so stock is sure to be high!

On top of being able to purchase and view over 500 quilts, this show will also feature quilts judged by the NACQJ (National Association of Certified Quilt Judges). Raffles, second-hand treasures, and auctions alongside other vendors will be available as well.

This event will be in the Fair Center building at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, on the southwest side of the fairgrounds.
