It's Almost Paducah Time
Yes, it is almost time for the annual AQS Quilt Show in Paducah. I wonder if all the beautiful dogwood trees will be finished blooming by the time we arrive since a large part of the US has had an earlier than normal spring this year. I just love the sight of these beautiful trees covered with large white or pink blossoms but am not counting on seeing them this year.
I am trying to make a list of things I want to look at or purchase when my sisters, niece, friend and I go in a couple of weeks. We stay with a wonderful woman who is the mother in law of my friend and she lives right in Paducah, how great is that! I am so thrilled and feel so blessed to get to spend time with my family and friends, attend the show, excited to see the winning quilts and to shop, shop, shop.
I am again asking for your help. Are there any notions, tools, fabrics, fusibles, interfacings, pins, needles, scissors, patterns, books (basically anything related to sewing or quilting) that you think I should consider getting or at least taking a look at. What are those things that you absolutely love? I do have a list that I started after I got home last year that I add to as the year goes along but always like recommendations too so please comment on your favorites of any sewing related item.
I do call this a shopping list not necessarily a buying list. Some things that I have seen advertised I just want to see in person and I may or may not be interested in buying them but want to find and look at them, see how they work, etc.
This year we should not see flooding like last year when the flood gates had to be installed and the show venues rearranged in a short amount of time. They show staff did a wonderful job but hope they don’t have that kind of emergency again. We didn’t find any problems with any of the moving around last year and know we will have just as good a time this year even if there are no changes.
Guess that is all for now,
