    I look forward to going to the AQS Paducah show all year. It's so much fun and I come home motivated beyond belief. Anyone planning on being there this coming April?

    I always wanted to go and for too many years, something seemed to come up and I didn't make it. I got to thinking I wasn't getting any younger and if I didn't go do things I enjoyed, I'd be sitting at home in a rocker thinking why did I pass up the chance to do things. Now it's a given I'll be gone that week. If something comes up that is not devastating then either it will be there when I get back or someone else (hubby) handled it. Since my kids are grown I quit carrying tissues in my purse. Let someone else carry some. :D

    I hope you have a wonderful time. It is a great show and so many things in town to see and do. Don't miss Eleanor Burns show or going to "Hancocks of Paducah" they always have great buys on fabric. Been there done that and wish I were going with you. Marge

    I have been thinking about going! We often make trips to Ft. Campbell to "hang out" with some friends from when we were stationed there. Paducah is right on the way and its only about 80 miles from post! I think I am going to have to talk my husband into going down and then leave him with the kids and Rach and I will take a trip to Paducah. I am sure between two men they can handle six kids ages 11,10,7,6,3, and 10 months!

    I am going and my husband is going with me! He loves the shows. He doesnt sew, but he is amazed especially at the hand quilted ones (something I wont do I need instant gratification). We visit my sister in Knoxville, Tn thru the year and alwasy have to stop at the museum and hancocks if they are open. I am so excited!! My girlfriend and I went to Des Moines show this winter. I can't imagine what Paducah will be like. We both started quilting January of last year. She isnt a tru quilter though, she finishes everything and has no stash. I have at least 4 UFO's and lets not even talk about the stash! LOL

    If anyone else is going or has been I'd love to hear about it.

    I have been on the fence about going. I would love to take a class from Eleanor Burns. I think she is a great teacher. I worry that I am not advanced enough and people would wonder who let me in. It would be wonderful to meet some of you on the board too!

    I have been trying to go for several years, but even when I try to get room reservations 8 or 9 months in advance, all the rooms are booked. One of these days I will make it. I hear it is great time.

    I looked a couple of months ago and the hotels close by were already booked... I guess I was looking in all of the wrong places :(

    I would love to see pics of the show if anyone takes some. I only see a few pics of American shows in the occasional magazine.

    I'm so jealous - you get to live the quilters dream! It's on my "someday" list.

    I am planning to take a day trip by bus for one day! All I can manage right now. Did get to spend the entire weekend there one year and it was pure heaven. I didn't get to take any classes though, and that is a goal for another year!

    Same here. Maybe I could find a family to adopt me & a friend for the weekend!

    try booking in Marion illinois. It only takes about 45 minutes on interstate to get to paducah.

    And I understand the friend thing. My girlfriend always likes to make plans and backs out even as I am at her door to pick her up.

    ****SQUEAL**** I CANT WAIT!!

    Hey Margie! I think most quilters are thrilled when someone takes up the passion and would welcome a "not so advanced" quilter with open arms. Paducah is great and you'll get so inspired and learn so much. I hope you get to go. Remember everyone was new at some time.
