Welcome back to another great year of quilting and reading!
Our Guild Library offers a large selection of books and magazines full of great quilt ideas and technique information. You can borrow these for a month; just sign the lending binder and return and sign your item back in the next month.
Each month we will also have a tote of books and magazines for sale. Money raised goes toward purchasing new books and magazines. Books sell for $1 and magazines for $.25. Donations of recent magazines are welcome and will be offered for sale at each meeting.
Every month we have our popular “guess the number of pages in the book” contest and the quilter who has the closest guess wins the book!
Our library stock was sorted and re-organized over the summer, so as you browse through our wondrously varied selection, please help us keep them orderly. You are sure to find something to tempt you into a new project!

New in the Library
by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson
Whether you buy a fat quarter pack or make up your own grouping, this book is great for everyone: for those of us challenged to coordinate colours and those who need a few basic technique tips. There are 12 new quilt patterns too.
Simply Modern Patchwork Quilts
by Janet Goddard
This book has 10 contemporary patterns in it that range from easy to those needing a little more experience.
Quilting Row by Row:
27 Skill-Building Techniques
by Jeanette White & Erin Hamilton
This is a skills technique book teaching things like applique and piecing while creating a pretty row by row quilt. Some of the “rows” could even be used as borders if you are looking for something different to add interest to your quilt.
