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.
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.

I live in New England and am always on the look-out for good used bookstores. Sounds like on my next trip through Maine that I will need to make a stop at this store. I am a beginner quilter and have found your quilt blog to be a wealth of info for making beautiful and simple quilts. Thank u so much.
Thank you for reading this quilt blog and your kind words. Yes, the bookstore is worth the stop – whether you are looking for quilt books or some other genre. Happy quilting.
Searching for a quilt pattern called Songbird
From a book In the Meadow by barb adams and another gal.
Hello, Have you tried Amazon or Ebay? The pattern does not ring a bell with me at all. Best wishes on your search. Happy quilting.
Used book stores are the best next to fabric stores. Lots and lots of great treasures.
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.
