The Kalona Quilt Show brought thousands of people to the community over the weekend. Katie Karnes with the Wooden Wheel in Kalona says they had over 1000 people visit the quilt show. She says people come from all over to view the quilts, including Texas, California and Utah. Two-thirds of the quilts on display were new, meaning they haven’t been part of the show before, and the rest are antique quilts. Karnes says all in all it was a good 3 day event with the weather steady and many nice people enjoying not only the quilts but Kalona as well.
