Stitchy Friends & Sampler Books

I've been quite fortunate to make many needlework friends via the internet. Sue is one of the first friends I 'met' on the Legacy bulletin board. While I hardly ever frequent the Legacy board any more (am I missing out on anything?), I have remained in contact with Sue, and other Legacy BB members, via Facebook. Stitchy friends are the best...don't you agree?

Recently, Sue decided to pare down her needlework book library and being the great stitchy friend that she is, asked if I was interested in adopting any of the titles. She has quite the list! Wowzers! I offered to share her list and her contact info with other like-minded stitchy friends who may come across my blog. Take a look below and if you've been looking to acquire any of these wonderful titles, Sue's contact info is at the end of the list.
