"Betty's Personal Collection"
There comes a time in every painter's life when our stash of treasures starts taking over our living space. Such is the case with my book collection. I have many books that are still in mint or near-mint condition and a few that have been shop copies that were very much loved resulting in scruffed edges, holepunching for notebooks or writing on the cover, but the patterns, worksheets and instructions are still in very good condition. We have listed a short description of each book. A majority of these books are out of print, but several are fairly recent. If you are a collector, have a favorite designer or are just looking for something different to paint or design ideas, you may find some here. Please browse and see if you can give some of my "children" a good home. I have loved them all for as long as I can.
