Once again it is time for quilters from every state and all over the world to ascend on Paducah, Kentucky.
2008 marks the 24th year of the Quilt Show in Paducah. Somewhere around 30,000 - 40,000 people come to admire all of the quilts, visit the American Quilters Museum and buy tons of "stuff" to use while quilting. I know nothing about quilting so I don't see the fascination but apparently it is a very popular thing to do. The only thing I know to do is STAY AWAY FROM DOWNTOWN because the quilters are everywhere. A lot of them sport fanny packs and quilted vests. Others are quick to recognize because they look so much like, well quilters.
One good thing about it though is that the quilters pump lots of money into Paducah's economy and that is a good thing. Does anyone out there like to quilt??
