    I made it to Paducah!

    I finally made it to Paducah last week. I was in heaven when I walked into Hancock's! Took my patterns with me, planning to buy fabric for them and instead bought fabric for patterns I don't have yet and bought more patterns for fabric I don't have. Quilt in a Day was such a nice store and great prices. Didn't have time to select fabric as they were still on their winter hours and closed at 4pm. Did get a couple fo Eleanor's books that I haven't seen before. Wish I would have had time to go to the quilt museum - but that will give me an excuse to go back.

    I went to every show for the first fifteen years...then we moved back to SC and I worked, so I couldn't make the trip in the time available...now I'm too far away and (probably) too lazy to go that far from home....sigh.......But isn't it fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can hardly wait too! My DD lives in Paducah and works for the newspaper and she actually gets to cover some of the quilt goings-on! Even my DH goes with us and pays to see the quilts, etc. - one of the very few men! I already have my Eleanor Burns coupons printed off!

    Ooooh, you lucky! Paducah sounds like quilter's heaven to me. Someday...
    We have a Quilt in a Day store close to us. I used to take my son when I went and he'd hang out with the sound guys (that's where she made her videos) and he'd always say "take your time Mom". I didn't have to be told twice!

    I hope to get up for a weekend either this month or next month, but not the show. So I'm glad to hear you had a good time there even without the show.

    It sounds like you had a great time!! I've been to the Keepsake Quilting store in New Hamshire and that is a thrill every time I get to visit there while we are on vacation. I felt like I was in Heaven!

    I love Hancock's and the QUilt in a Day shop. Great places to visit - and the quilt museum, too of course.

    I so want to go this year and take my FW's with me to sell, but can't find a place to stay at this late date. Guess I'll reserve very early next year.
