    Paducah Ky - AQS Quilt Show

    I have been asked if I would like to go as she wants to go but will not travel that far by herself. She has a friend that we can stay for $25 a night which includes breakfast. There is three of us going, I'm so excited.

    I was wondering if any of my quilting board friends are going to be there and if so is there a meet and greet?

    I am going with a two bus group from Indianapolis. Been doing it for over 15 years. Taking my mominlaw so I will mostly be showing her a good time this year. She is not a quilter but loves doing new things so seeing the quilts should be fun.

    Thankfully this year there will be less water.

    Make sure you go to Carson Park to the Eleanor Burns Show (free) and her huge fabric tent. Last year the fabric was $5.00 per yard. Have a great time.

    I'm really lucky to live within an hour of Paducah! Even when I taught school, I managed to go at least one day after school! It's a tremendous experience just being with all the quilts and all the people. What I would like to do is go to the Houston show someday!

    I would love to be going, I envy all of you who can go. Take lots of pictures and write about your experiences when you return! I'm going to love hearing about all of them.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Going to Paducah is a great trip--a group of friends and I have been going for the past 5 or 6 years together--the quilts are always spectacular and the shopping is so much fun--one thing we always do is have strawberry shortcake at the boy scout stand--yummy--it is about 3 hour drive from STL

    I'm going for the first time. My cousin and I are going on the road next Wed for 3 weeks and will be visiting other cousins in OH & NC. These are areas I've never been before and am excited to get on the road! I'm sure we will have a great time in Paducah--she's been before and says it's great.
    She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough!

    Lucky you! It is so much fun and so much to see and buy. Went a few years ago. Two girls from our guild were juried in with a wallhanging and a quilt. They are so excited and their work is wonderful. Have a great time.

    Hi! My hubby and I have been going for a few years now. There is trolly and bus service just for the show all over the main parts of Paducah. Go to www.americanquilter.com and click on shows. It is the AQS site and all the info you need is there.

    Definitely get the strawberry shortcake that was mentioned earlier. It is delicious! And Whalers Catch, real close to the museum, always has a great lunch and a special adult beverage for us quilters.

    Be sure to visit the Fabric Store during the quilt show in Paducah. We will be located across the street from the Quilt Musem (behind Whaler's Catch). We have prepared many quilt kits, Fat quarters, bundles of Fabric - 5 yards for $15.00, tone-on-tones $3.75, 108"backing, Moda, Thimbleberries, and many more great designers and fabric deals! Hope to see you there! Store will be open 9am- 7pm Monday April 23 - Saturday April 28 (although will close earlier on Saturday!)
