As a first timer to Paducah I felt a bit overwhelmed with the whole thing. Its not just the main venue you have to contended with its all the other small venues that are going on in and around the town. Plus Hancocks and vendors in the Kentucky Oaks Mall,which I found just by chance . I also found one of my favourite web site shops there.

I parked at Carson Park and took the shuttle into the Convention Centre so that I could orientate myself. Once you get the hang of the shuttle system and got my self a show catalogue I sat down and worked out what to try and see in the first day. Needless to say I did far to much and when I got back to the B&B in the evening was in bed by 8.30 and sound asleep by 8.35. It could have been something to do with the 2 long days I had in the car and sleeping in different beds. Well that's going to be my excuse, AGEEEEEE doesn't have anything to do with it at all.

I purchased the Summer Gatherings book along with the small Peony Quilt Kit that is in the first photo from one of my favourite shops. Primitive Gatherings

I am going to just post lots of photos over the next few days from in and around Paducah. I hope you enjoy.

  3. Apologies Sue for removing the post, made a bit of a boo boo. I think I wouldn't have been able to walk past that stand without a purchase or two.

  4. I am really enjoying travelling with you in America. I can understand you being so tired after all the shopping!

  5. great purchases, I love that kit you bought actually I love all three of those quilts in that picture! I thought about buying that kit too. I have to order her new book, I love her designs too!
    i haven't heard about that book by Darlene Zimmerman, are you happy with it?
    lots of antique quilts in it?
    Looks like you had so much fun.
