I need to know, what I donít know. . .
Iíve read most of the information on the quilt show here. What has changed in the last couple of years. Anything no longer available, (closed) any new places? Anything we cannot miss? Please help.
Thank you, Thank you !

I used to go to Paducah a lot and the shops were always different, even when it wasn't quilt show week. They will have information everywhere about the vendors and shops. Just be sure to go to Eleanor's and out to Hancock's. there are so many little shops along all of the streets. Enjoy!

Hi! I live about 20 minutes from Paducah and my mom is a tour guide at the Museum. I'll be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. If I don't know, she will for sure!

I go to the Quilt Show every year and of course am very familiar with the whole area. Ask away...I'll be happy to help.

The Executive Inn is gone. Yep! Tore her right down. That was a hugh area used for vendors. I'm sure they have all moved to the big marshmallow pavillion.

If you only have one day then the quilt show and show vendors will be about all you'll have time for. Eleanor Burns has a tent show and sell at the fairgrounds and she has her quilt shop downtown. The mall has lots of quilt vendors. Hancock's of Paducah has a huge parking lot and is open late during the quilt show. I take a 1/2 day to walk the downtown area, vendors are set up everywhere. Last year the best prices I found were at the mall vendors.
