MAINE & USED QUILTING BOOKS

My last post was about the quilting projects I worked on during vacation in Maine. However, I also visited several used books stores. I found some wonderful used quilting books. In my mind, Maine & used quilting books go together.

Maybe because of the long snowy winters in Maine, there are many wonderful used books stores to visit. This year I concentrated on finding some used books on quilting.

My personal favorites are: Stone Soup Books in Camden, Rockland Library Book Stop, and Two Brothers Books in Freeport. There are many more in the area and you would probably find others that you like.

Quilting Book Treasures I Found:

Seven books cost me $30. An exciting treasure trove that will be enjoyed again and again.

Interesting articles about quilts and quilting in British Isles
"New England Quilt Museum Quilts"
"Quilting" by Dorothy Osler

I encourage you:

New books are expensive. I like books, and read many genres. A personal library is fun. If you are wanting to expand your quilting library then check out the used book stores in your area.

If you are headed to or live in Maine, check out the stores I listed above. Who knows what treasures you will find. Most of all, enjoy the search.

Make today amazing.

    1. Yes, my two favorite places to shop are used book stores and fabric stores. For both places, it is a good thing that I can stick to a budget.
