    with very cool batiks in the front of the catalog. Oh, the Gelato! And the Tonga Creamsicle! And the Blooming Garden Roll Up! And the Spring Garden Roll Up! and...and....and... And Hey remember Frugal Fabrics asked us about the Tonga Batik Island Punch Eyelash? I thought it looked like pineapple chunks (don't like pineapple) but it sure looks cool along with the Tonga Lollipop line. I am really in trouble now!!!! Just spent a bunch of money on tree trimming and a new fence.

    You know, it just occurred to me that I haven't gotten a KQ catalog lately. Guess I will have to buy something so I will get it again. :roll: :lol:

    You mean the "wish book", I wish I had this or better yet, "I wish I had the money to buy all this!"

    I sit at night and thumb through it like a kid in a candy store.

    I just got mine yesterday, too, and do the same thing!

    I received both the Keepsake Quilting and the Hancocks of Paducah catalogs in the past two days. They are both bookmarked like crazy, even tho I don't have the money to buy anything right now! It is nice to dream, though.

    I looked through mine last night and drooled over the batiks.

    Hopefully mine will be coming soon. I love it. I have ordered from there and was very pleased with what I got.

    Could you tell me the volume number of the catalogue, please? Is it the Summer issue? I ordered a catalogue in March and then ordered again in April. I haven't received either one yet. I had the same problem last year - I don't think they like sending the catalogue to Canada. However, they have no problem sending the fabric I buy from them!

    Well, I guess what people have been posting is true. Fabric was much higher in Paducah this year. Even the fabric at Hancock's in the wareroom was a dollar more this year and less to choose from. I didn't buy a single piece in the back. The fabric in the main store was ten and eleven dollars. May have had some for nine.

    Fat quarters at the vendors were higher than usual.

    Fabric was just higher everywhere. The ladies from out of the country were not complaining. It was fabric heaven for them. Fabric is so high in the countries overseas. Plus their money goes further here. We met some of them at our hotel.

    Please pray for the people in Paducah. The water is getting higher and they are having some flooding in some areas. Looks like the convention center may take on some water, even with the work that they did last year to keep this from happening. No one knew that it would get so high. The water is getting high on the flood walls. I hope and pray that the walls and gates will hold.

    It is Volume 55 Summer 2011. There is a 10% off deal if you order from it by May 30th. When I had ordered from the previous catalog I got another one with my order; gave it to my DDIL who is a non-quilting graphic artist. But she loved it.

    Thanks for the info. I even asked for a catalogue to be included with my last order and they didn't put one in. I'm going to have to email them to find out what the heck is going on.

    I just got my first catalog and am in love too!
    I've dog eared way too many pages to be safe this year.

    I just returned from the AQS show in Paducah and spent a month's salary in Hancock's of Paducah! The store is wonderful and Mr. Hancock and family are terrific! Have you ever been to the store? It is quite an experience.

    No, I have never been there. I probably would be so confused with indecision that I would end up buying nothing. That happens to me when I go to a new fabric store; want to buy everything, so buy nothing. I would rather take my time poring over the catalog or the website.

    I'd look forward to the catalog but they have yet to finish my order I placed back in February. They keep saying it's on back order, give me a break. This is the second or third time this has happened with this company.
