The Ainsworth Community Center and Opera House is holding their annual feed sack display this weekend.  Michael Zahs with the Ainsworth Opera House says they will have quilts, old feed sacks, aprons, some clothes, curtains and more on display.  He says they have the largest display in the nation.

Zahs says most of the material was cotton and was a sturdy material.  He adds in the 1930s and 1940s that every bit of fabric in a house could have been part of a feed sack.

Zahs says they will also be having a buffet meal both evenings.  He shares the proceeds from this display go toward the Opera House.
