Lincoln in the Bardo

The book Lincoln in the Bardo has received praise but according to staff the audiobook is the way to go, including comments like:

Lincoln in the Bardo is the BEST audiobook I have ever heard in my life.”

And when you look at the list of performers it’s not difficult to see why. It includes a huge cast of talent including Nick Offerman, David Sedaris, and George Saunders.

No Scrap Left Behind

No Scrap Left Behind gives enough creative push and bright colorful examples to take that trip to Jo-Ann (or to your buried fabric stash) and come back to the Studio to use our Janome sewing machines and large tables to cut and piece together any of the small projects. Start small then work your way up to lap quilts and wall hangings.
