  1. I've been to this show several times and it is always truly wonderful! It takes place during the AQS Quilt show held annually in Paducah which usually brings in around 30-40,000 visitors from around the world. Yeiser is just a couple blocks away from the Quilt Museum on Paducah's downtown busiest block, so it gets tons of exposure.
