The Paducah (Kentucky) quilt show is April 24-27, 2013. I've always wanted to go for the entire show - but not gone because the hotels are so outrageous & I'd rather spend my money on fabric. So for 2013, on a whim, I had my daughter go online and look to see what she could find. Amazingly enough - the Motel 6 in Metropolis, Illinois - which is about 10 miles or 20 minutes from the quilt show - has rooms! And they are really affordable. I am so excited, and wanted to share the good news with everyone else. I'm sure that they won't last long - so if you're considering it - check it out and make your reservations online. If you book through the Motel 6 website - it can be $5-$10 cheaper than calling the hotel. And if you're wondering why everyone else hasn't already booked the hotel - Motel 6 is not always listed on all of the popular travel websites when you look for hotels - so a lot of people forget about them. Hope that you're as lucky as I was!
