Show Time in Paducah

Well, the quilts are all judged, and if you are planning to attend the Sneak Preview tomorrow (Tuesday) evening from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., you'll be the first to know who the winners are! Beautiful quilts - lots of color - and interesting techniques.

The Executive Inn is open and the food prepared by Creehan and Company is delicious. I ate both lunch and dinner in the hotel restaurant today. They are having a buffet for breakfast ($9), lunch ($10), and dinner ($15) for all you can eat and that includes your drink, salad bar, and dessert bar. One thing a little different is that you pay as you enter the Patio Dining Room.

In addition, Kincaid's Restaurant (the one that overlooks the Ohio River) will be open in the evenings, and the bar in there will be open then too.

Vendors were setting up today in the new Galleria area in the hotel - lots of room to shop in this area...and there are 156 booths in this one area. Tomorrow the vendors will set up in the first and second floors of the convention center, and the Expo Center. They'll all be ready for you at the Sneak Preview at 6:30.

There is a lot to look forward to. See you all at the show!

Hi Bonnie, Another great show and I wanted to personally thank you. Although all of my sisters were unable to attend one was and it was worth all the fun we had and the quilt show didn't dissapoint us. With all the problems you had to endure to pull this off you did an excellent job. Wishing you many more great shows. Mary and Andee
