Books, Books, and more Books!!!

The following is a shameless attempt and encouraging others to buy my friends' books with hope that I will be give one in return!!!

Seriously folks, I must admit that I feel blessed by the quilting friends that I have made over the past 2 years....I can't believe that it has been just 2 years since I made my first bag and started sewing seriously. The friends I have made are amazing!!! Let me tell you what a few of them have going on!!

The first is obviously the most important!! Seriously, she is the lady that got me going. Her pattern was my first bag and I have helped her out whenever I can and she has helped me out immensely!!!

Let me present the lovely and talented Sara Lawson of SewSweetness. 

She has been working very hard and her first (of many I am sure) is coming out soon! You can read all about it here and pre-order it here!!!

There may or may not be something that I sewed in this book too!!

The next young lady is one that I met through the afore-mentioned Sara Lawson when I moved from TX to IN last year. Through her I joined the Indy Modern Quilt Guild. Unfortunately, she then decided to move to Nashville just as I was getting to know her! 

On a side note:When we first became friends on FB I noticed that we had mutual friends and this surprised me, especially because of who they were. I worked as a manager at a restaurant on the West side of Columbus, OH and she was friends with some of my employees because she is originally from that area and went to school with them!! Small world!

Anywho- she has a great book out- sure to be the first of many! She is also in too many magazines and online places to mention!!

Read more on her blog about it here and pre-order it here!!

The third and final person is one that is dear to my heart. He has overcome many challenges in his life and keeps on going. I am currently super jealous of him as he and his beautiful family are going to be spending a year in England drinking tea and eating pastries and talking with a haughty accent!!

His (that's right it's a MAN) name is Thomas Knauer. He is someone that is highly educated and always speaks his mind and I am in awe of him because of this!

He has a book coming out also! Not only are there quilts but it's a book worth reading. His insights are amazing! If really makes you think about why people do what they do and how it impacts the world and those in it.

Please check out his blog and learn more about here! Start from the very beginning people!! That is a very good place to start!! He also has a pattern featured in this book that just came out....

And in a magazine that is at your local stores this month!

OK, that's all for now! 

BTW- all photos were borrowed....yeah that's the word.....from various FB sources and Amazon.

So go buy some books and help these wonderful folks be able to buy more fabric!!!
