This is a great site, if parcel post or media mail is ok its free shipping [it akes a while to get to you at times] Profit go to libraries and third world countries. Like books for Africa. Most of the books are donated.........loads of new and used quilting books. a lot of used ones are only 3.48. take a look a good thing all around

Thanks for the great link. I LOVE books so I have to say bye-bye for now and go shopping. For quilting books.

I have bought from them twice and the first time was a perfect transaction, the second time they sent me the wrong books. I will say they bent over backwards to send me one of the books right away that they had in stock and a label to ship the wrong books back and as soon as they received those books they credited me for the other two. As professionally as they handled their mistake, I will definitely shop with them again! :D :D :D

Ruth,
Thanks for this link. I did order some books and want to say I'm pleased with the service. It takes a little more than a few days to make the long postal trip to Canada, but my first book arrived today. It was supposed to be used so I paid $3.48 but it turned out to be brand new. My others are new and coming separately but there was no extra postage charge. This is my new Amazon.
Barbara
