Rotary Club show returns for 29th year

For most, April in Paducah means blooming dogwoods and the big American Quilter's Society show, but did you also know that for years the Rotary Club of Paducah has organized its own quilt show?

The show, which takes over 120 local Rotarians to run, has developed a very reputable following and is known for beautiful, curated antique quilts, as well as many quilt related vendors who sell fabrics, quilt supplies and other notions. This year's show, taking place through April 29 at Paducah's Robert Cherry Civic Center, has the theme of "Dare to Dance" and celebrates quilts that mirror each artist's understanding of joy.

This year's chairwoman, Dee Dee Whittaker, is enthusiastic for the public to see the great quilts that are on display. "One of the things I'm most excited about is this year we will be giving away one of the antique quilts as a door prize. This is the first time we've done that."

A ticket to the show will admit one person all week. In addition to the vendor products, attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase the annual Rotary Quilt pin. Proceeds from the Rotary Club Quilt Show will go toward the Rotary Education Assistance Program (REAP) to help provide local educational scholarships.

Former Rotary Quilt Show Executive Director Phyllis Russell says the quilt show is the group's main event every year, and in addition to seeing some stunning quilts, "The show is a fun event, you meet a lot of nice people, and it's all for a good cause."
