Wanna Trade??

Hello Everyone,

I bet you all know that I am a big lover of Kaffe Fassett. You know that I carry his fabrics in my shop. I have mostly all his books, with the exception of one!



I do not have the above pictured book. It is on loan from our local library and I really, really want this book. Unfortunately, it is out of print. ACK!! So I was wondering if any of you Kaffe loving quilters might have this book and might be willing to part with it??? I would be willing to do a trade with you! So if you are, leave a comment or e-mail me privately and we'll talk!!

Thank you all for considering this proposal. Next post will be back to our regular scheduled programming!

Until Next Time...

I'm surprised that book is out of print. I think it's one of the first Kaffe books I purchased. I hope you find someone willing to trade.

I notice that some people are willing to part with their copies on Amazon at around $60. Good luck on your search.

I don't have that one either. I'm kind of sad to hear it's out of print because it has some great quilts. (You know how I love those Kaffe's, too!)
Just recently my friend Annie gave me a hard copy of one of his first books "Glorious Intereriors".
I'll let you know if I find anyone willing to sell.

I just saw two listing on Amazon. One had them for about $60 and the other for something in the $20s. Have you tried the second? Sally

our library will give you an option to buy the book if it's out of date if you donate one that is newer or more up to date by the same author...try it :)

I am amazed at how much some quilting books sell for on Amazon. I once sold a book I didn't want for $75.00 and it was an out of print romance! I couldn't believe my good fortune that day - the money immediately went to quilting supplies :)
Good luck finding you book.

I would also suggest asking the library about purchasing it. If the book hasn't been lent out very often, they may be more than happy to sell it. good luck.

Good luck with your quest to get this book! I am also Kaffe-crazy, so if you have a chance you should see the quilt I am working on - Broken Dishes. I've pics of it on my blog: Jayne's Quilting Room. My stash of Kaffe/Westminster fabrics is extensive: I have a lot of work ahead of me!! Enjoy your blog!

Jackie,

I looked this book up on eBay and found two copies. You should be able to purchase it for $19.07 or $28.10, depending on paperback or hardcopy. Here's the link: http://www.dealoz.com/nr/ad_prod_search.pl?cat=book&ad_id=17288&data_id=631025&keyword=Kaffe+Fassett's+Caravan+of+Quilts&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=ag_Kaffe_Fassett's_Caravan_of_Quilts&utm_content=17288&utm_campaign=google_name_book_sp_cpc_name If the link doesn't work, let me know and I'll tell you how I found them.

If you did not find your book, Amazon has some for 31.00 at the moment. Some were selling for 150.00! But they did have three in the 30's
