    Just talked dh into taking next Friday off, so that we can head to Paducah! It will be my first time going, so hoping a Friday afternoon and a Saturday will give me some time to see most of everything? I really have no idea, since my local guild's show is fairly small and can be done in a couple of hours.

    Do I need to get tickets in advance for this? I know hotels are booked in Paducah, but there are some available within 10 miles, which is fine with us.

    I'm not just buying fabric, I am supporting the economy...

    A bad day in the sewing room is better than a good day at the office.

    You can buy tickets on line or at the door. I have heard there may be a line to buy at the door, which is no surprise.

    You don't need to have tickets in advance - but you may wind up in a line . . . having not been there before, I can't tell if it will be a long line or not. BUT I've gone to a few national expos and shows and haven't had any difficulty getting my ticket to get in. They usually have several stations set up to sell tickets.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I'm going with my friend. This will be my third time but first time to spend the night. I lucked out and was able to get a motel room in paducah last week. Sooo excited.

    I always buy my tickets when I get there. You get a discount if you are a member of AQS.

    I haven't decided if I am going to go this year or not.

    Wouldn't it be great if we had a Missouri Star greeting post set up somewhere????

    I am from Missouri, the St. Louis area. I was not familiar with where Country Club, MO was at. My daughter and I will be there on Thursday through Saturday. She is coming from Dallas and I will travel from Buffalo, NY. We meet in St. Louis and drive down.

    You can buy tickets online, but there is a five dollar fee. Go to AQS, that is where all the activities are listed as well. And if you wait, the lines can be crazy long. Make sure you allow a full day at the expo center to view quilts and of course....shop! Stop by the Paducah Volunteer booth right by the front doors, pick up a map of where all the activities are located. They have trolleys that can take you from venue to venue.

    For hotels, you could check Trip Advisor. I had luck just a couple of weeks ago booking. If nothing else, go to the Paducah Visitor's Bureau/Chamber of Commerce downtown near the Quilt Museum. The hotels call them with any available hotel rooms at the last minute. You could call them now as well to see if they have any updates.

    You will have so much fun!
