Arrive at 10 am at Hancock's Fabric. Look everything over, check out the back room. Eat lunch. Go downtown to book sale and vendors. Head to E Burns tent and barn sale and show. Go to mall and visit each vendor there. May go to night show at the art building.
Next morning arrive at convention center an hour before the show. Visit with the lobby tables, see the raffle quilts, and chat with other quilters. Go to the quilt show. Stay at quilt show and bubble until afternoon. Don't forget to eat something. Go to E Burns downtown store, and other quilt shops downtown, go to the Rotary quilt exhibit and vendors. Go to Hancocks and stay until closing sitting on porch visiting with other quilters and enjoying the fun in the back room. Eat a nice dinner.

Next morning check out of hotel. Go to the quilt museum, see other downtown places of interest, run by E Burns tent sale one last time, stop at Hancock's to check back room for more sales. Drive home. :D

Subject to change at any time if the mood strikes to go back to see something again.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is Paducah? Sounds like a quilt show or sale. Is it annual? Have seen it mentioned a lot lately here.

Paducah, KY is a city and also an annual EVENT in the US quilting world. Big, bigger, biggest! Wears down shoes and quilters and credit cards, but fun!

I wish they gave out numbers for the restroom! LOL Men have a porta potty outside and the women have the men and ladies bathroom to use inside. Still a wait though. Go before you get there! At E Burns tent sale lots of porta pottys set up with hand washing stations.

The cake is sold at the quilt show outside. It sells out fast too. It does look luscious and so tempting but I know I have to eat very light when doing a lot of activity. I'll get to feeling sluggish if I ate a big piece of cake.
