I just got word that a new book with one of my quilts has arrived at the publisher’s warehouse, which, coincidentally is about 10 minutes away from me. Sadly I have to wait for it to ship, but should only take a day to arrive when it does, I believe March 1st. I don’t recall which quilt photos I submitted, so it will be a surprise to me what I have in it.

You could pre-order/order it at Barnes and Noble from Feb 28-March 3 using the code: 1154892 and part of the proceeds of your order will be donated to the guild and the charity we choose. The guild works with many organizations donating quilts, hats, and other items and services. It is currently 26% off. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of checkout page and look for a selection box for bookfair orders!
I will be doing to presentations during the book fair: Printing on Fabric and Art Quilt Techniques (2:30 and 4:00). I hope that if you are in the Indianapolis area, you will stop by.
The Guild is hosting a bookfair on Saturday, February 28th, from 10 AM to 9 PM, at the Rivers Crossing Barnes & Noble (near Keystone at the Crossing). Your purchases that day will help support the Guild and one of our favorite charities (to be determined). The bookfair will feature the following:
- A quilt exhibition throughout the store, featuring the Guild’s 2015 Quilt Show Opportunity Quilt
- Quilting demos and workshops for children and adults alike
- A quilter’s storytime for children
- A charity quilt-in where you can help finish quilts for charity
- A book signing by Jennifer Fulton and the Guild members that helped with her book, Idiot’s Guides: Quilting
The bookfair will help promote membership in our Guild, our upcoming Quilt Show, our charitable activities, and quilting in general. Simply come to the River Crossing B&N and then prior to your purchase, either show the coupon, mention the code, or tell the cashier you want to participate in the bookfair to have your purchases count.
Although we hope you will all come out to support the bookfair, there are many ways in which you can participate. For example, you can make purchases at any Barnes & Noble in the country from February 28th to March 3rd and as long as you show the coupon or mention our bookfair code 1154892 prior to the actual transaction, those purchases will count towards this fundraiser. So spread the word to everyone you know—they can help us out even if they don’t live here in Indy.
You can also purchase items online at www.bn.com/bookfair from February 28th to March 5th, and use the code in the Bookfair Event ID Box at checkout to help the fundraiser. So again, spread the word about our fundraiser and share the code number at the bottom of the coupon to help increase our sales.
By the way, if you are a Barnes & Noble member, you can apply your member discount and still help the fundraiser. Gift card purchases, video games, software, and digital content (such as downloadable books, digital magazines, or music files) will not count, however Nook ereaders, accessories, and purchases at the in-store Starbucks do!
So plan ahead and hold your purchases until our special day, and then go crazy and help your guild and its charity.

Note: In the case of bad weather, the events scheduled at the River Crossing Barnes and Noble will be moved to Sunday, March 1st, from 10 AM to 9 PM. The bookfair fundraiser however, will run from February 28th to March 5th regardless.
