During my research to prepare for the trip to Paducah, the back room at Hancock’s of Paducah was a consistent recommendation of something not to miss. So of course, I followed the advice of my fellow quilters!On Monday afternoon, I took some time to drive out to Hancock’s. It is located out of town a bit, close to the main highway. The outside of the building is not fancy, but the inside is amazing. It is a huge fabric store with almost everything a quilter could want. I was surprised at how many people were there on the Monday before the festival. In the back room, there are many bins of good quality fabrics at $5.98 per yard.
There were so many choices that it was hard to resist! Compared to most of the shoppers, I was very restrained in my purchases. The three pieces I did buy are for two specific quilts I am making in the next few months. It is good to have a souvenir, right?
