    Wow - it is held about the 3rd week in April - so much could happen before then - but I just might go.

    I'm going - my first show. I just found a room and booked it - not easy to find anything. I'm going from St. Louis, and booked a double room in Metropolis, right across the river. It looks to be about 10 miles or so from the event. If anyone out there is wanting to go and can't find a place to stay, I am willing to share - staying Thursday and Friday nights.

    Hi, I used to live in St. Louis west county area. I am going to quilt show for 2nd time. Stayed at Americas Best Value Inn last time- missed a good breakfast there but was clean. I have booked a room in Kuttawa for Friday through Sunday nights. But have decided I'd like to go up on Thursday. Do you have a room to share for Thursday April 25? Just let me know. I am now retired and live in Central missouri . Thanks , Kris (I'm taking a class from Eleanor Burns while there.)

    The Expo Center where the actual show is: 1 Executive Blvd, Paducah, KY
    The Museum, which is only a couple blocks away: 215 Jefferson St, Paducah, KY
    There are several big parking lots nearby.

    Eleanor Burns main store is also very close: 119 North 4th Street Paducah, KY

    The Cherry Civic Center...antique quilt show: 2701 Park Ave, Paducah, KY
    Hancock's: 3841 Hinkleville Rd Paducah, KY (actually Hancock's and the cherry Center are pretty close...this is the same road)

    I'll get the meal schedule for the churches...food is great and the price is wonderful.

    Here is a bunch of info:
    1. Take one day for shopping. Start at CarsonPark which is Eleanor Burns Central. Tent for her new show at 10, 1, and 4. Check all this on the www.quiltinaday.com website. There is a tent for the show,a building for her retail sales of supplies and last year, batiks were in back. Then there is a huge huge tent with thousands of bolts of fabric for $5 per yard. Get your coupon on the QIAD site above. There are also discounts for color of the day, end of bolt, etc.

    She also has a good store downtown full of fabric and a warehouse store. All are on the bus or trolley lines for those without cars. All the same price but may have different color of the day discount. Also a new liquidation store at 400 block of Broadway, new this year.

    Then if you have energy, check out Hancocks of Paducah but only after Eleanor Burns. Big and crowded but with plenty of cutters and cashiers. Never had to wait long.

    Rotary Show is small but the vendors are good and the batik booth, cherrywood hand dyes, and others are here. $5 entry but get a wristband to come back. Still have energy, there may be vendors at the Mall or you can head downtown to the vendors on Kentucky. Almost forgot the museum. Between downtown and the convention center.

    Second Day, show. Get your hand stamped since there are multiple entry points and don't forget the big white blow up building outside. Some really choice vendors there and some more quilts.

    Food. Difficult. There are fast food places outside the show and a tent with picnic tables. You can go downtown to Kirchoffs Bakery and Deli for fast and delicious salads and sandwiches. See their website for location, hours and menu.

    Several churches have wonderful meals during quilt week. The two best are Friday night for Taste of Paducah and Saturday night at the Methodist church. Worth more than they are charging and wonderful people. Check here for details:

    Wow this is full of info, I hope to make it next year, not yet healed from bad fall in Nov2012. Every board member should make them a pin with a big bright QB on it. Then you would know if your in the presence of a member.
