ETA: I got the idea for this post from Tany who recently posted about her library.
I'm a book person.I love learning as much as I can about my hobby, but its not easy for me to go out and take a class or go to a seminar, so I buy books. Now with eight kids I try to keep my hobby cost within reasonable cost. So for books I do buy some new but I also search thrift stores, eBay, half.com, book giveaways. so because of this my sewing/patternmaking library has exploded over the last few years. What you see here is about half of what I own. This is just what I could spread out over everyone's baggage without going over, the rest are still in the states which I plan to have shipped to me over time. I don't think I'll be getting anymore books anytime soon since English books are not easy to get here and shipping from the states is NOT cheap. So here is my small library.
