Quilts in the Attic Update

I thought I would share some news about my book, Quilts in the Attic: Uncovering the Hidden Stories of the Quilts We Love. The first is that Checker Distributors (they wholesale to quilt shops) has decided to pick up and sell my book. This is good news for those quilt shops that would like to carry my book and hopefully they will offer it in their shops.

Next Connecting Threads, Vancouver, WA. is now carry my book and I was told that it will be featured in their next catalog. When I checked out the May issue, it was not there so hopefully in June. For me this is personally touching since in the past they have only offered how-to books to their customers. It's a great place to get batiks. They only charge $6.96 a yard. Will sell 1/4 yards pieces either linear or fat! Great service and fast shipping. Oh, and they have wonderful thread too!Life is good!


  1. That's great! Karen - Now my friends can get a copy for themselves. I just finished the copy I got from our local library. You'll be happy to know that here was a bit of a waiting list for it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the personal accounts. You hit the nail on the head when you stated in your Introduction that, "The stories told (in the book) really do show the basic drive in the human spirit to create something that carries purpose and meaning."

  2. Rec'd your book as a Christmas present. Enjoyed it.


Love comments! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
