    My favorite place to by quilting books is half.com I can usually get them for a fraction of the price! If you buy them from the same dealer you can get a discount of the postage.

    I buy them on here and at Half price and join Crafters CHoice and get 4 books a dollar each and buy two more. Then stop the club and rejoin later. LOL. Garage sales, friends, guilds, etc. Anywhere I find one I like.

    I bought a lot of quilting books when Hobby Lobby used to run the 50% off instructional books sale...do they even do that anymore? Now I buy online (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Ebay, etc.).

    I have bought some through SEW It's For Sale and the some have come from Jo Anns when I have had 50% off coupons. I love books and magazines both but they can be pricey so I buy used ones.

    Online I shop at Barnes and Nobles and when physically shopping, I lean towards Halfprice bookstore. Never tried Amazon.

    Very seldom do I buy them new, half price books, goodwill, flea markets, and I got one for 99 cents on e-bay.

    I use the local library first. So many books may only have one or 2 patterns I know I would make. This way I can photocopy the pages (which is legal). If I must have a book, I use Amazon and buy used if I can.
