BEMIDJI -- About 50 quilters, knitters, and other crafters showed off their wares Saturday at Bemidji Middle School’s annual craft fair.

Organizers said they expect to raise about $2,000 at the fair, and that money will help pay for the middle school’s bash and a visit from an Ojibwe storyteller, among other activities for students there.
