Default Visitors from Austria

Some of you may have seen the thread where we were discussing the largest fabric shop in the US. Largest Quilt Shop in America?
Well, our Austrians arrived in Paducah this week and I helped them see all of the quilty goodness that Paducah and surrounding area offers. It was a fun meet up and the ladies shopped so much that we had to find them another suitcase just to get all of their treasures home!

Here's some pictures!

I love it when people visit the USA and have a really good time. Fabric we consider expensive here is much higher overseas. Just think of all the fun quilts they will make and you made it possible!

Looks like you all had tons of fun and with a common interest of quilting-that made for lots of conversation.

Melody, you are so hospitable and a great ambassador for Paducah. How could they not have fun with you showing them all the quilty goodness? Bet they flipped when you brought them to Hancocks!

I actually had the husbands go in first and get their cameras ready so they could capture that moment when they walked through the door. It was awesome!
