Paducah on National Geographic Traveler

While reading National Geographic Traveler online earlier today, I found an article that mentions Paducah, KY, for its National Quilt Museum and arts district.  (I'd like to add the architecture to the list.) It's interesting that Paducah is number five on the list of fifty. It took me a little while to figure a few things out, but eventually I did, so I'm posting the short piece here.  By all means, follow the links and read the entire article for kicks.

Paducah has us in stitches. This small Kentucky town was recently named a UNESCO City of Crafts and Folk Art for its efforts to sew together world-class fiber arts assets (the National Quilt Museum is located here) and to attract creatives (potters, painters, jewelry makers) to its LowerTown Arts District.
