The rankings change and update hourly so they will move and drop but for the moment I am a very excited Sharon! Thank you to everyone who has purchased the book, spread the word and left a review! I am feeling like it was not so much hard work after all!


  1. Hi Sharon, Congrats on reaching the best sellers list, Received the book on Monday. Already read it from cover to cover. Once the templates arrive… (I know, I gotta wait, SIGH!!!)… I thought I had actually completed at least one of the blocks of this old quilt I told you about… After looking through the book I can see I have lots more happy and creative stitching to go. This is going to be one fantastic quilt once completed… thanks to you, your book and the templates.

  2. I have a great idea for the next book, print your wonderful stitch dictionary and make it spiral bound!!!! I’d love a hard copy instead of printing them out all the time and could take it with me to guild and stitch in meetings.

    1. Hi Kim – I am thinking about a stitch dictionary but the trick will be to convince my publisher that material already published free online is a sellable product so I am thinking of ways to make it a really good dictionary of stitches

      1. Tell them you’ve had requests for it so it can be taken to meetings and guild events. I bet I’m not the only one who would love it and you have unique variations to other ones available. Happy to help get it done!

  3. Sharon. My book arrived last week and it is everything and more that I expected….. your blog has been such a help and education to me….I’ve got to admit that while technology is fantastic, I still like to open a book and turn the pages….having your book is not only a fantastic resource, but an absolute joy to turn those beautiful pages. I hope this will e the first of many successful and informative books…. dx

  4. Congratulations, Sharon. You deserve this. Your book is my bible for stitches and creativity in crazy quilting. Gorgeous book. Between this book and your TAST list of stitches, how can we, stitchers, go wrong. Happy as a lark. Keep us lefties in mind though when posting stitches. Thanks.

  5. Thank you Sharon for a wonderful book. You are an amazing lady. I also want to thank another amazing lady, Mary Corbet, for introducing me to you through her blog. I read about you and your 2020 challenge and decided that I wanted to join and of course I needed your book. I am very excited for you – you deserve much praise.

    I now follow two wonderful amazing needle ladies!!

  6. You deserve to reach the top of the book list Sharon. So much of your time, effort and knowledge has gone into the book. I hope the book remains on the top for a long time yet.
    I’m keen for the book to arrive, it looked so good online.

  7. It’s arrived, it’s arrived, Sharon’s book has arrived! Don’t interrupt me and go feed yourselves I’M BUSY.
    Sharon, congratulations it’s amazing, your talent is off the planet!
    Is it worth the wait? Very much so.

  8. Thats great news, well deserved! My copy is on its way and I’m sure it will be the go to book, just as this is the go to website for all things to do with stitching and embroidering. Thank you for sharing, and for all the hard work that goes in to helping and inspiring us all!

  9. Congratulations. Just received my copy. Looking forward to a good read then putting it into practice. I’ve never tried crazy quilting. I have made. Regular pieced. Lap quilts so it’s a new challenge and embroidery. Only cross stitch but I’m sure what with your tutorials. Will do well.

  10. Congratulations! Your giving spirit is so inviting and your excellence in expertise shines brightly! I am very happy for you. Thank you for sharing your joy in stitching.
