    I'm beginning, so I've just began to collect my stash of quilting books. I've been very restrained in not ordering a pile of quilting magazines, but will have subscriptions on my holiday wishlist! I also day dream and night dream of quilting; these are very pleasant dreams indeed.

    check local garage and estate sales in your area for good prices on these items.

    I'm in the process of going thru all of mine. Some I haven't look at in a long, long time. One of these days I will be offering some on this board.

    Need? Less than ten "good" books -

    After that, many of them are very repetitious.

    It does depend on one's experience level and how imaginative/creative one is.

    I have about 6 books that I consider my "GO TO" books. Then I have 3 or 4 more books that I use for inspiration.

    As for magazines - I started taking the articles or projects out of the magazines by scanning them into PDFs. I have the PDFs categorized like "Quilts", "Hints", "How Tos" and then I make the name explain the PDF. Then I donate the magazines. It cut down a lot on the space I needed to maintain them! PLUS it is easier to find what I want.

    There will never be enough! I started subscribing to a few as a new quilter years ago in Vanuatu where we didn't have access to anything related to quilting, and taught myself (other than a basic week-end course I took 10 years before). Before I knew it, I subscribed to at least 5 and everytime I went on vacation, I bought a different magazine and ususally got home and subscribed to it too. Now, I have 8 subscriptions, and a shelf full of various quilting books I just HAD to have. I can't stand to part with them, and periodically thumb thru them for inspiration or a new pattern. It is amazing how my tastes have changed over the years-quilts I tagged to make, I really don't care for, and ones I didn't give a second glance to, I now really like.
