ST. CLOUD – Thousands of quilters from across Minnesota are in town for the 36th annual Minnesota Quilters Inc. Show.

The conference runs through Saturday, June 14th at the River’s Edge Convention Center. Anywhere from 8,000-10,000 people are expected to attend. Marilyn Orlich is volunteering at the convention and has been sewing and quilting since she was a child, she says that quilting can be used as a way to express yourself.

“Quilting seemed like a nice artistic outlet as well as just a way to use the craft I already learned,” Orlich says.

Hundreds of quilts of all different shapes, sizes and colors will be on display. Some can be purchased and others can be bid on.

The convention also offers quilt lovers a chance to meet others and share their hobby.

“It’s almost like a seniors slumber party,” Orlich said with a smile.

The quilt show rotates between St. Paul, Duluth, Rochester and St. Cloud. It was in Duluth last year.  The two previous times it came to St. Cloud was in 2006, and 2010.

The show is open to the public, but there is a fee to get in.
