Hello! My mom is looking for novels with sewing themes. She gave me a long list of books she is looking for specifically. If you have others that fit the category, please PM me with those, too. She has the whole Debbie Macomber Blossom Street series, too, which I think is a flower shop? set. (She's a florist & also has a craft/fabric store.) So, any help is greatly appreciated.

Some of these may be wishlisted...if so, please just skip over them. I haven't looked up every title, since there were so many of them. Thanks!

Thanks in advance for your help with these! I really appreciate it!!

ETA: I added all of the ones she already has and marked through them. I think this will help me to keep up with what she has and what she doesn't much better. I was getting really confused!

I also went through and added the books on the author lists within the sewing/quilting/knitting genre that I saw. A few in the list are wishlisted, so please just ignore those. I needed to have them on the list so that I can keep up with what she still needs.

I think it is acceptable in the bazaar that if you have several WL books and want to send them to one person, that it is okay? If that's the case, I'm happy to order in bulk. Advanced Reader Copies are fine with my mom, too.

Thank you again!!!!

I don't have any to offer, but just wanted to suggest she might enjoy the Elm Creek Quilt series by Jennifer Chiaverini.

The Chiaverini books and the Richards books are both wonderful.  I will look when I get home and she what I have laying around.  It will be near the end of the week before I am home. 


Please PM me and remind me to do so.  Vicky

Thank you for the suggestion! I'm sure she'd love the quilt series, too!

I'm actually going on vacation tomorrow for the weekend, Vicky, so I'll check in with you on Sunday night. Thanks!!

Thanks for all of the suggestions & for the deals so far. I added Jennifer Chiaverini books to the list, too. She also just found one by Shelia Roberts at our local used book store. I didn't see but one book by her in the PBS system, though.

Still looking for the rest of these. Thanks!!

My mom's caught up on her reading, so I thought I would bump this up again to see if any of you have some of these available.

I'm happy to order several at a time to save you shipping. Thanks! Rita.

Added the Laura Childs series to the list & marked through the ones my mom has gotten recently. It looks like the first few books from the series are in the system.  If you have any of these on your shelf (or any other books on the list) & offering a deal, please pm me. Thanks!! Rita.
