Bluegrass & Backroads: Quality products important at Quillin Leather and Tack and so is personal service

Ralph Quillin runs the nation’s largest “Custom Leather Shop” in Paris, Kentucky. The Quillin craftsmen and women make over 17,000 halters a year in the Main Street stores. Customers are sure that they like most — the leather products or the personal service provided by the staff.

Kentucky is a state defined by its history and noted for a number of things, not the least of which is horse racing, bourbon, bluegrass music and barbecue.

But, as natives Bob Shrader and Matt Hilton remind us each week, there’s so much more to the Bluegrass State and its people, culture and rural charm. Shrader and Hilton combine their talents to produce the award-winning Bluegrass & Backroads, a 30-minute program aired regionally on the Kentucky Education Television networks and nationally via satellite on RFD-TV through Dish Network, DirecTV and several major cable outlets.

For more information about Bluegrass & Backroads, including a list of the stations on which the show airs and schedules, visit the show’s website. The program’s Youtube Page can be found here.
