Guild Library Closeout Sale – Saturday, November 19, 11:15 a.m.-2 p.m.

Morris Lawrence Building, Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor.


The board members voted in July to close the guild’s lending library after carefully considering the continuing trends of low circulation.

The books in the GAAQG quilt study collection remain guild property, supporting our mission to promote the study and appreciation of quilts. Members who are studying to become certified quilt appraisers regularly use these reference materials.

Sale Details

The sale is open to the public 12 p.m.-2 p.m. Guild members may shop early 11:15 a.m.-12 p.m.

Books are priced at one of two tiers: $2 each or 6 books for $10; $5 each or 5 books for $20. Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.

Note: A limited number of books will be available to members in a silent auction, with a minimum bid of $20 each. These include hard cover and out-of-print books by highly regarded quilt makers and artists including Gwen Marston, Yoko Saito, and Jane Dunnewold.

About the Collection

The nearly 600 books in the collection cover all aspects of quilt making: design, patterns, piecing techniques, embellishment, and machine quilting. Notable authors range from traditional to contemporary, such as Eleanor Burns, Kim Diehl, Angela Walters, and Yoko Saito. Local authors, Sue Nickels and Mary Hogan, are represented, too.

For a complete list of authors, see the author cloud in the guild’s Library Thing catalog or search the catalog directly for your favorite authors and titles.

Add to your library at these very affordable prices.

See you on November 19!
