    I will be going to Paducah for the first time and will be there for two days.
    What are your suggestions?
    What to carry?
    What not to carry?
    What not to miss?
    Can you have a rolling cart?

    Thanks,
    Patti

    Water
    comfy shoes
    cash
    credit card
    driver's license
    camera
    back pack, or over your shoulder bag, ditch your purse for the day
    small pad and pen
    quart size bag to put business cards, etc
    snacks
    make time for the vendors, but don't forget to admire the quilts
    Advil for the end of the day, your feet will be tired
    BIG SMILE!!

    Check on line, some shows only allow strollers or carts on the last day of the show.

    Make sure you hit "Hancocks" it's not like the Hancock outlet stores. As much as I enjoyed the show. I had just as much fun checking out the area. The whole town makes you welcome. Have a Blast, I'm so envious, I wish I could go this year.!!

    Wear comfortable shoes.
    Take more money than you think you will need.

    All of the above. BUT, don't miss the quilt museum. If all you get to see there are the stained glass windows, it will be worth it.

    A non-quilting must is the murals lining the riverbank - awesome.
