Paduch Quilt Show Heaven

I spent last week(Monday-Saturday) with my Mom and sister Laura,plus our limo driver aka Jerry...........Laura's hubby. This is the second time we have been able to come. It's a trip all quilters need to make. It is heaven for quilters. You need a budget when you come, because You want everything. You see demo's on all kinds of products,sewing machines, longarms etc............Plus every pattern you could ever want. Fabric of every kind. Hancock's of Paducah is a must stop. And let us not forget quilts like you have never seen. The talent is amazing. Lots of famous quilters are there in the different booths. Quilt In a Day store is a must stop and Eleanor Burns also has the fair grounds set up with tents full of $4.00 fabric,plus all of her products. She has quilts hung in the big barn and does a skit promoting her new books. This from last year,Mom and Laura, to my disappointment this was not here. The whole trip I said "I wanted to be the skinny quilter"Lol
Even the cows get dressed for the quilt show.The town is a nice place to visit with all the shops.

This is Patti's.............pie heaven. It's a stop that all quilters need to make.Patti's Settlement has shops,gorgeous gardens, antiques and dining. We went last it was a must gotta go again.

Looks like you had a fabulous time in Paducah! My mom's boss had one of her quilts there and she went as well. It's one of those places I dream of going to some day.
