If you've been crocheting a long time like I have, you'll remember that back in the day crochet books were a bit on the scarce side. Today, new crochet books chocked full of exciting pattern designs are coming out on a regular basis in droves.
Designers come together at Crochet Guild Conferences and learn from each other, as well as having opportunities to meet editors who participate. Learning to navigate the pathway to publication is an important first step to bringing a design to print.
This week I am highlighting the books that I have recently reviewed here on the blog, and maybe you'll read about one that you'd like to add to your collection.
For those of you who may have an avid interest in vintage books (some from the late 19th century), I was contacted by Kathy Weintraub who wants to liquidate her large collection. Be aware that she wants to sell her books in "large chunks." if you are interested, call her at 773-288-5311.

As always with the folks at Leisure Arts, the stitch diagrams at the back of the book are clearly illustrated and helpful for additional guidance. Watch for the camera icons throughout the book which signal bonus online technique videos.
