Hi I received some books from my aunt who got them from a friend. I don't quilt so I'd like to sell them. I know many people here are dabblers in many different crafts so I thought I try here. These books are in very good condition. Some of these I was able to look up on amazon so we can come up with a price from there. I would either like money via money order or trade for yarn, knitting books..just ask! Just click on each book title to read more about them on amazon. For those that don't have reviews, I'll describe them.
