    MY FAVORITE BOOKSELLER. I have been ordering books from them for at least 8 years. I am also SUPER CHEAP, and I LOVE the service. The cheap shipping is a defiant PLUS.

    Look under needlecrafts. Sewing, knitting, quilting etc. are all mixed together. I have ordered many times from them and am pleased with service. Happy hunting!

    I totally agree with you I really can't afford to spend out on books if I want my fabric etc; for my quilting addiction so your link looks really good but unfortunately they don't ship internationally.

    For those who don't' live in the USA and those who do this site is a really good spot to find super bargains on books: http://www.abebooks.com/ scan to the bottom of the page and you will see that they cover a whole load of countries including here in the UK, Canada, Australia etc.

    On Friday, I received my order of five books from Edward Hamilton using a free shipping promotion which expired 31 July.

    My two favorite finds include Quilting for Busy Boomers by Stauffer and Hatch and --- drum roll please -- Wisconsin Quilts (history in the stitches-2nd edition). I am just thrilled to be owner of my personal copy of the second book which documents the Wisconsin Quilt History Project. I think I found that book under history. They also used to have the Minnesota book under history.

    Total for entire order was $18.75 Happy shopping :o)

    I have bought a lot of my quilt books from them. I look there first to see if they have it before i pay full price for it.

    I order from them all the time. Great prices and if you are not happy with a book you can return it.

    Thanks so much for sending us the site. I used to get the catalog but never ordered anything. Now that I see how many quilting books are on the web site, I'll be a regular customer.

    Click listings. An alphabetical list will appear. In the right column you will find quilting. Click that and receive pages and pages of quilting books.

The other day when I was in there I noticed she had a quite a few craft and quilting books but being the cheapo I am I do not buy books full price lol. While she was cutting my fabric I purchased she said I do not usually do this but I am going to give u my website that I order my quilting books from and I am able to mark them up at least 50%! So I here is the link ladies

    keep in mind that ordering is differ to keep costs low from what I understand u can either request a catalog or browse through what they have and print off the order form and mail the order form and check, this help keeps costs low. I have not yet ordered but the shop owner has multiple times and said the shipping is $3.50 regardless of how much u order.
    I have gotten lots of books from Edward R. Hamilton and the prices are great. They DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS. That is one reason why they can keep their costs low. They will only accept checks. You can browse the website but as you say you CAN NOT ORDER directly from the website. Their selection is quite limited on quilting and craft books. They buy overstocks.

    Our inmates order from this place all the time. I haven't heard any of them complain about them, so you should be able to get good service.

    I just placed an order with them yesterday! If you have any questions about the books you are thinking about getting, check Amazon for a more detailed description and reviews. Sometimes, you can look "inside" the book.

    Oh goodness! I just ordered 5 books I had not planned to buy today......

    Great site, thanks a bunch from one who cannot normally afford such a luxury as to buy 5 books at once.
