This evening I went to a nearby thrift store and bought 2 hardback quilt books for $9.21. The titles of the books are : Creative American Quilting by Better Homes and Garden and The American Quilt Story , The How to and heritage of a craft traditon (Step by step for 30 Antique Quilts) by Susan Jenkins and Linda Seward. I reallly like both books and thought they were in good condition and I thought they were a bargain!!!!!

So Quilters what have you bought this week that was a bargain?

An online book place is called ABE books. Most books are only a dollar but you do pay shipping. Also no discription of the books content.
Lots of used quilting books.
This site is a collection of used books stores that use Abe as a one stop shopping place for all kinds of books.

Thanks for the info... I have a wishlist/basket at Chapters, but haven't clicked that buy button yet. I'll go to AbeBooks and see if that site has the quilting books I'd like...

You can order the books online too, if there isn't a store near you.

I buy from Hamilton also. It is great but sure takes a long time to go thru the cataloug. you get one about every week. He knows all about you too.
When I moved back to AZ he found me, then when I ordered a quilting book from Abes he started adding quilting books to the catalog. It is amazing how much the media knows about us.
