Today I had some errands to do. While I was out, I thought I would stop at a couple of thrift stores. I like to browse through and see if there are any great treasures to be found.
At my first stop I must have come on just the right day because I found this little gem.
Can you see that it is marked 20c? Even though I am not a garment sewer, I thought the book was so charming. It was published in 1966. A very nice addition to my sewing memorablia.
As I scoured through more of the book section, my eyes fell on this quilting book.....
Now I have looked at Quilts, Quilts, Quilts by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes for years. A couple of times I saw them at quilt shows in the resale bin, but I never bought it. Well today it was had for a total of 40c... Yes you heard me right, the complete guide to quiltmaking for forty cents! Whewww..... it was an amazing find!
But that is not all............. there were 4 more quilting/craft books that I bought. They ranged in price from 40c to $1.91. I thought this book looked very interesting.
It has primitive type patterns, which I think could be used in lots of projects.
For a grand total of $5.62 I came away with six quilting/craft books that can be added to my ever growing library.
I think I had a profitable day. I hope yours was a good one too :-)
