    Best website for quilting books

    I know it's been posted on here several times, but I just can't find it. What is the best website for ordering quilting books?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ditto! What is great about Connecting Threads is that you get to see pics of several pages in the books too!

    They have new books, but not the latest.

    I do exactly the same. All three places have great selections and prices.

    You can usually find the best prices on amazon, especially if you're willing to get a used book. Most new books qualify for free shipping if you spend $25 or more. And the selection is better there than anywhere else.

    I buy mine from Martingales in pdf form as I live in Finland so I save the shipping fee . They have all books in print as well, free shipping on over 40$ purchase. Every week they have a Sale, Weekly WOW!, some books for 40% of their regular price. In fact I just ckecked their link and I'm going to order one on patchwork jackets for under 8$!

    Like several others here, I like Amazon and Connecting THreads. I often buy them at Joann's with 40 or 50% off coupons.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Hamilton Books http://www.hamiltonbook.com/hamiltonbook.storefront

    They have 238 quilting books listed right now. If you order by mail shipping is always about $3.50 no matter how many books you order.

    I do the same thing. Amazon has good prices and free shipping. Checking books out at the library is a smart thing to do, as I have bought too many books and been then been disappointed.

    I got stung once with a used book from amazon. It had pages falling out and when I let the seller know about it, they did nothing. I DO buy new books from Amazon. They have the best prices and free shipping.
