Craft books for Christmas ideas


I thought of something yesterday, when I was feeling low on ideas. It occurred to me that I should check the library for recycled wool craft books. I wasn't expecting to find anything, but to my surprise they had both The Sweater Chop Shop by Crispina Ffrench & Sweater surgery : how to make new things with old sweaters by Stefanie Girard. I like to buy craft books from the authors, or in the store, so they get paid for it, but right now I cannot afford to be buying new books. However, I have made yet another discovery... If I submit a suggestion to the library, they almost always will order it, so a copy will get paid for! I will be compiling a list of suggestions for my library today :) I will share it with you all later!
