It's Market Cookbook Season! 2024 Happiness is Homemade
Every year, (This is the 5th annual) industry designers, distributors, and shops who attend Market all contribute favorite recipes for our annual Market Cookbook. Along with food, comes stitching - so several designers contribute free charts as well.

Lots of fun things every year... the charts are always good, and I think it's fun to have actual Italian recipes right from the Italian designers! 75 to 100 recipes and pages... taking reservations now for shipment when we get home from the show the first week in March.

Here is Val's Stuff's FREEBIE DESIGN included in this year's cookbook. What a fun Sneak Peek! (Val will be coming out with a companion design to this one at Market - watch for those details on the Market Page!)

The shops are all numbered on the maps... then the directory offers varied information about each. Addresses, hours, kind of product mix, phone numbers, websites... just great info to help you plan the stops on your next road trip adventure!

They even have software that will plan your route for you and include the types of shops you 'need' to visit! Really a fun book to have -- and a super-fun stocking stuffer or neat stitch group gift!
