Rare History!

Back in 1969, Bonnie Leman published the very first issue of Quilter's Newsletter from her own kitchen table and the quilting world has not been the same since! Still going strong today, Quilter's Newsletter is one of the flagship magazines of the Quilting world, a place where quilters can find the latest quilting news, get great new patterns, or learn the best tips and tricks on how to make your quilt and the love of quilting even more enjoyable.

Well, have I got NEWS for you! My friend is offering to our blog readers the very first opportunity to bid on a rare piece of quilting history: 34! years of Quilter's Newsletter magazine in one huge collection, nearly all of the consecutive issues from March 1972 through to December 2006. (The collection is missing only two issues from that date range: #42 Apr. 1973 and #148 Jan. 1983. However, a bonus issue, #15 Jan. 1971, will be included in the final winning bid.)

Wow! is about all I can say. This collection is a veritable treasure trove of quilting history and information that would be hard for any serious lover or scholar of quilting and Quilter's Newsletter Magazine to pass up. Certainly, this collection would be a presitigous and welcome addition to any quilt library.

To bid on this collection of approximately 300 issues, all you have to do is sign our guestbook AND, in the comment box, write in "BID ON Q.N. Magazine" with the amount (in US$) that you would like to offer!

(*The winning bidder also pays for shipping or can arrange to pick up at our location.)

We'll respond to the best offer as soon as we can and let everyone know when my friend closes the bidding. Don't miss your chance on this great bit of quilt history!
