If you’ve never been to Hancock’s of Paducah, you really should think about stopping in if you are ever anywhere near. This is not your average fabric store. The first time I went in, my husband was with me. Good thing - he pounded me on my back to make me start breathing again! Several hundred bolts of solids, including every color Kona cotton.... a bajillion bolts of batiks..... thousands of bolts of fabric sorted out by manufacturer, designer and line. And then there’s the back room - - - oh my! The first time I was in, the lady cutting my fabric asked if I found everything I was looking for, and I said the only thing I wished they had was precuts, because I couldn’t find them anywhere. She said, “Oh, they’re in the... back room...” in the same tone of voice the guy at the video store would tell you where to find the adult movies. I followed her to the room and... oh my.... thousands of precut bundles all arranged next to the stock room - 20 foot tall shelves with more fabric!! I tell you, it was a fabric addict’s dreamland. And during the quilt show, they have tables of one-yard cuts all at great prices - you just kind of dig through and see what you can find. You never know what’s in the stacks, so it’s like a treasure hunt.
Oh my - I just noticed something else - that followers count is up to 999 - just one more to go to reach that elusive 1000 mark!!! Hmmm… I'm at Paducah, the quilt capital of the world… I bet they've got something great I could get for a giveaway!! I'll have to put my thinking cap on….. Come on, one more follower!!!
And now it’s your turn!
