Hi Crafters,does anyone have a copy of the book by Marci Baker called ABC TUMBLING BLOCKS---and More that they no longer need i would be happy tp pay a good price for it ,ive tried everywhere to find one even our library,but no luck,
Marci does an easy way to make blocks ,ive watched on you tube but she goes so fast i cant follow it.
she has another book called ---not your grandmothers tumbling blocks which is difficult to find.
appreciate it if anyone can help.

best wishes wendy(lincs)

Wendy....thats great, did they say they'd post to UK??

You'll have to list the books you don't want. Start a thread for books needing new homes:)



Wendy Report 23 Aug 2013 09:33

They do post to uk Jude,am ordering today,will probably be couple of weeks coming but at least i can get quilting then.
book thread sounds great ,they cost me a fortune to buy so cant just give them away,but willing to haggle in this climate of poverty.

The link Jude posted still shows the book at reduced price with free shipping.
It works out at about £18 sterling.
Hope you can find it again
