The Longaberger Company is well known for its hand-woven baskets, now it's getting noticed for a different hand-made creation. The United Memorial 9/11 Victims Memorial Quilt" is on display at the Longaberger Manufacturing Campus near Frazeyburg. The quilt was created by more than 3,600 volunteers from every state in the United States and 17 other countries around the world. The quilters include two Dresden sisters. The massive creation stretches 15,000 square feet long, and to put that in perspective it covers three and a half football fields. If you weren't able to see the 9/11 quilt today, it will be on display until tomorrow from 11a.m. to 5p.m. Admission is free. The Longaberger stop will be the only one in Ohio.
