Quilt Crazy - Books, Quilts and Theater

The whole town's gone quiltin' crazy!

Along with many other Main Street merchants, we here at the Bookery are proudly displaying quilts, books about quilting, pioneer women, and the westward journey, in honor of Quilters, the new play produced by Imagination Theater and El Dorado Arts Council, and directed by Chrissie Addison.

It's the perfect time of year to get cozy and go to a play full of intensity, drama and song in a warm theater on a snowy or rainy afternoon!

Especially when it centers around the age old activity of quilting, in the shelter of a group of pioneer women...
...a timeless, engaging, and thoughtful story.
Read about it here in the local paper.

And meanwhile, come check out our marvelous quilting books.
So many cool projects that you can do at home during these stormy spring days!

Or just looking for some fascinating reading material?
We have diaries and accounts of women's journeys westward.

We encourage all our customers to go see this wonderful production!
For tickets go here.

And St. Patrick's Day opens to door to all sorts of fascinating topics stemming from America's rich Irish culture...

...like leprachauns!

Don't forget to check out our Irish history section for even more books on the folklore, customs, ghost stories, and historical events of this fascinating place and culture.
