“The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change.” -Bill Clinton

We’re mixing things up, Paducah! From now on, our Weekly Top 5 will incorporate events for the entire week ahead, not just the pending weekend activities. That way you’ll have more to choose from and time to plan accordingly!

1.) P.I.P & Dip

What better way to Partake in Paducah this summer than by partaking in tacos by the pool?!

Partake in Paducah is teaming up with their new amigos over at Chandler Park Apartments and Bluegrass Event Planning for the first time EVER, fiesta style! Help us come together as a community in an effort to give back to Paducah Cooperative Ministries; an organization dedicated to providing charitable programs and services to people in the McCracken County area. Summer can be tough on local food pantries due to the hot season’s hustle and bustle – that’s when WE come in! The event will take place in the pool area so don’t forget your swimmies! Visit the Facebook event page for more information!

This event is 21 and older.

2.) Easy Machine Methods Workshop

Some could argue that the heart and soul of our city is stitched into each and every quilt at the National Quilt Museum. Come learn our city’s most infamous past time and “stitch” yourself into its legacy!

In this class, you will learn how to do fun, fast, and easy needle turn projects using a sewing machine. You’ll be making smooth curves and perfect points in no time! Upon expanding on this method, you’ll then be shown a super easy machine method for English Paper Piecing. For further information and class details, visit their Facebook event below!

3.) Paint & Sip

What goes better together than paint and pizza? (Just don’t put paint ON your pizza.)

With just as many colors to choose from as there are beers to taste, this is one event you won’t want to miss. Lynda Coon from ‘Yes, I Can Paint’ located in Iowa will be a guest instructor. Your painting choices for the class are designed and taught by her! You can choose which design you want at the event.
