I just posted a number of classic needlepoint books. Order one (and send me a PM) and I'll also include a free unworked canvas-- the design is a large, single sunflower. I don't have the dimensions of the canvas on hand, but it's about the size of a large pillow.

Books available on my shelf:

  • Japanese motifs in needlepoint
  • The Needlepoint Book

(picture me tearing my hair out!) I was writing a reply and hit the wrong button and the reply went poof into cyber-space!  GRRR! One of those user errors, you know? Now back to subject:  I am avid crocheter and have collected lots of books and patterns over the years. Because of carpal tunnel, the computer (mostly digital scrapbooking) and reading, I don't crochet as much except when watching TV (football season, particularly). If you look at my bookshelf, I have listed some crochet books recently. I also listed some crochet pamphlets on my profile that I am giving away with any book request. Just PM me with your request when you order a book from me!  I'll stick it in with your book.

Second item is that I have two large binders of Leisure Arts leaflets/booklets that I would love to see go to a good home. No, not all to one place. :) There are simply too many for me to list without aggravating my wrist pain. So, here is my suggestion:  go to the Leisure Arts link and click the Crochet link. See if there is any there you like, PM me and ask me if I have it.  I also have some that are no longer in print.  I would prefer you request these free leaflets/booklets with a book order since I would at least like to get a book credit if I am going to incur postage OR if you'd like you can (I guess?) donate a credit if you don't want a book. Anyway, we can work that out....I am not hard to deal with.  I just want to see them used rather than sit here and gather dust or be given to charity and not know what happens to them. 

ETA: I just did a long look at what I have and discovered I also have LOTS of Annie's Attic booklet/leaflets that cover everything from babies to household items plus one large notebook of afghans (one of those deals where you get 3 patterns a month or something like that). So ask away! Steph
