Book and Magazine Reviews

Quilters, and computer users, don't live by fabric and pixels alone. Sometimes we resort to that most old-fashioned of virtual realities, the simple, portable book or magazine.

Planet Patchwork offers the web's largest selection of original quilt book reviews, some aimed specifically at computing quilters, others aimed at more general quilting, computing and human issues.

Be sure to visit the Planet Patchwork bookstore!

Also, Come See! Planet Patchwork United Kingdom Quilters' Bookstore.. If you live in the U.K. and are tired of paying high shipping on quilt books from the U.S., visit our new U.K. Quilters' Bookstore. Discounts, quick local delivery, and lots of choices.
