If you have a love for arts and crafts, one local museum wants you to be their guest this weekend.

This year marks the 10th annual Mid-Ohio Valley Heritage Quilt Show.

Ninety quilts will be on display beginning Saturday at the Blennerhassett Museum.

Tuesday those entries were judged by a panel, winners to be announced this weekend.

Categories include bed, wall and "themed".

This year's theme is the Civil War.

Organizers say this is the largest collection of quilts in the show's history.

"I happen to be standing by the table that holds all of our themed category quilts," says Kathryn Lamm, Chairman of the Quilt Show Committee. "Next year, we have another surprise. So when you come to the quilt show, you will see what next year's theme is going to be."

If you'd like to get a closer look, Saturday's display costs $2 to attend.

That's a bargain if you're lucky enough to take a quilt home with you!

Another cool note about the show it will feature some historic sewing machines dating back to the 1860's.

The display runs through next week.
