PADUCAH, Ky. - Each April, 30,000 quilters trek to Paducah to celebrate the most exquisite quilts being created today.

But this weekend, there's another chance for local quilters to come together and celebrate: the Super City Quilt City Connection Quilt Show. It's a celebration of the arts between Paducah and Metropolis, with classes and demonstrations at the Harrah's Event Center in Metropolis and the National Quilt Museum in Paducah.

The show begins Saturday at 9 a.m., then again at noon Sunday.

Local 6's Marissa Hollowed visited the National Quilt Museum to preview this weekend's event. Check out the video for more.
