Since I posted a picture of my sewing library here, I’ve had a few requests for a list of my craft and sewing books, so I put together a shelf on Goodreads. I like the site a ton (it’s amazingly easy to find books and so fun to read everyone’s reviews) but if you see something you like, I hope you’ll support your local bookseller or check it out at the library.

Rae's sewing-and-crafts book recommendations, reviews, favorite quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists

I’d also like to point out that a rating of 3 stars means “I liked it” with a rating of 5 stars meaning “It’s amazing!” so these are all books I’d recommend!

    I saw some of these type of books at my local quilt shop, I always wondered what people used them for, they look like a lot of fun!

    Oh no, looks like I might have to blow my monthly budget early. What? It's not even February yet?
    Thanks for show us your books.

    Strange, got a message saying the shelf was private :(

    Guess I'll try adding you as a friend :)

    Cool! Hope you don't mind that I just sent a Goodreads request to friend you there. Always looking for more people who read sewing/crafting books.

    Looking forward to more of your reviews. Happy reading and sewing!
