Quilt event

Quilt exhibitors, vendors, and visitors can mark their calendar now and save the date for the 6th annual Quilts Along the Trail show in Osakis. The date has been set for Saturday, September 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Exhibitors are encouraged to register early and others wishing to be a vendor or join one of the events such as the bed turning, challenge quilt-making, consignment sales or make-and-take workshops, can register now by calling the Osakis Chamber of Commerce, a sponsoring partner, at (320) 859-3777.

There is no entry fee and no judging to be an exhibitor in the show, just the enjoyment of sharing the art and beauty of quilts. Entries for exhibit can be registered now and up until two days before the opening of the show.
