I have a list of books that I would LOVE to find. Some are out of print such as the ones by Pilgram and Roy.Some are just not easily found due to their age. So I faithfully "check" what Hamilton Books cycles through that website. Mr. Edward Hamilton is a friend to quilters everywhere, in my opinion...*VBS* His prices are top notch, the service excellent, and the shipping rates LOW. These are the new ones shuffling off to my house this week..*VBS*
I'm not much for applique, but I have almost ALL the "Twenty Little ----" books that Gwen Marston has published. So this one was a MUST have...and only $4.95 instead of the suggested $24.95.
I'm not familiar with this author or the book, but the quilts and projects are based on the life and times of Laura Ingalls Wilder. How can I go wrong at $4.95??? And this is one I have coveted for awhile now...it's pricey!
From my little corner of the world, I think twice or maybe 3 times before paying $21.95 for a book! It's better in price than anywhere else I've seen it, but still pricey. I think it will be worth it, however. With Hamilton, they always tell you the shipping will be in 3-15 business days...which sounds LONG...but my experience is that most of mine have arrived in less than a week. The link is on the sidebar. When you get there, look at the list on the left hand side of the page, scroll down to Needlecrafts. That will take you to a page where you can select the Needlecraft of your choice. Yesterday there were 255 quilting books to choose from...*VBS* The selection changes often, and he includes an indicator of what is being handled in number. If it says "remainer", the amount he has to sell is just that...what ever was left in the warehouse.
BUT....I found Gwen Marston/Freddy Moran's newest book at Hamilton while some of you were waiting for first shipment from Amazon or Barnes and Noble...*VBS* Ya just NEVER know..*VBS* (No affiliation to Hamilton..just a happy customer!)
Phebe - I love applique!
