    I have been getting email alerts from Hancocks of Paducah (cause I probably signed up at some point) and always assumed they were the parent company of my local Hancocks stores... But H of P advertises the name brand quilting lines, and with the big prices, too. Our local Hancocks only carries the more generic lines, like Absolutely Cotton. So, are they completely seperate companies who coincidentally share the same name, or are they affiliated?

    Just wondering...

    Yes they are totally different. The Hancock's in Paducah has probably 4 times the selection that your local Hancock's has & probably different lines of fabric too. We asked this one yr when we were at the qult show in Paducah

    Hancocks of Paducah is HUGE! It's like a Wal-mart sized store full of fabric.

    They are not the same company. Hancock Fabrics is a craft/fabric chain store like JoAnns.

    Hancocks-Paducah is a mail order company and has a store in Paducah. They are not a chain store. Hancocks-Paducah only carries top quality quilting cottons.

    From what I know the Hancock's parted ways a long time ago. One kept the store in Paducah and the other went the chain store way.

    H-Paducah is NO relation to Hancock's chain fabric stores. H-P carries just about ALL of the major quilt fabric makers.
    I've ordered from them many times and never been disappointed. They have good sales, closeouts & sometimes offer free SH too :)

    they also have many 20% or 10% off sales and a listing of 2.98, 3.98 and 4.98 sale fabrics. I do love Hancocks of Paducah!

    Yes it is different than the other Hancock's. I was educated in that just in the last couple weeks locally by some ladies. There is a huge difference between the Paducah one and those local to us. They have a much better quality fabric and a ton more choices and of course the price can be higher but you get what you pay for.
