    I love going there because you can find stuff you won't find anywhere else. Not everything is listed in their catalog and online.

    We always stop when we go to my sisters (but closed on Sunday I think).

    If it isn't too far, go have a look. if nothing else to just touch and feel all the amazing fabric! :)

    If I were you & could get to Hancocks of Paducah, I would do it.
    They have a back room of sale fabric on the quilt show week. Piles of quality fabric pieces & yardages on several tables. I see shoppers with shopping carts loaded with much the fabric. It is so fun to search the sale tables for what you want. The back room is very crowded when I have been there, but I haven't been there except quilt show week.

    I was in Hancocks of Paducah last year. I had just started quilting again and had no projects in mind. Wound up on sensory overload, wanted to look everywhere, and was so afraid I would miss something! Tried to organize myself and look at the clearance/sale fabrics, but oh my so much fabric!!!! I was also impressed by the selection of pattern books also. I would say it would be worth your time!

    Just a note - the gals with the carts full of fabrics MAY have been the employees getting the orders for the online/mail customers. I thought they were quite rude as they did not get out of the way in the narrow rows - I was the one who had to turn around and go the other way. They would have a clipboard with the pages of orders on it and then would go around and pick up the bolts of fabrics and go back to the tables and cut it and then go back and put the fabric where it belonged.

    They did have lots of quilts hanging from the rafters - samples of their patterns/fabrics, etc. My DH walked around and saw an "old time" quilt - one that his mother might have made during the 50's and he said that was the prettiest one there! He did not like the new looking quilts.

    Hancock's of Paducah is BIG - I think it is worth the stop - if for no other reason than to say that you have.
    If I had to choose just one, I'd do the American Quilt Museum! Wonderful.

    Hancocks is a great store to browse through but not much for bargains if that's what you are after. However, if you want lots of the top fabric lines at LQS prices, by all means go!
