Pattern Books



Pattern Books
I hate looking thru sewing pattern books at store. Can you get publications at home from anyone?

A lot of the pattern book publishers have their creations online, so you can browse through them and even order some of them online… or you can just write down the pattern number and go to a store and buy it (I find a lot of stores have their patterns on sale a lot so it’s cheaper that way). Below are some links to the more popular ones that I’ve worked with before!

A Cancer in the Family


A Cancer in the Family


$4.99


Oncologist and cancer gene hunter Theo Ross shares the story of discovering her own cancer gene mutation and unraveling her family?s unclear history, showing readers along the way what to do if they have a genetic predisposition for cancer or suspect one runs in their family. There are 13 million people with cancer in the United States, and it?s estimated that about 1.3 million of these cancers are hereditary. Yet despite advanced training in cancer genetics and years of practicing medicine, Dr. Theo Ross was never certain whether the history of cancers in her family was simple bad luck or a sign that they were carriers of a cancer-causing genetic mutation. Then she was diagnosed with melanoma, and for someone with a dark complexion, melanoma made no sense. It turned out there was a genetic factor at work. Using her own family?s story, the latest science of cancer genetics, and her experience as a practicing physician, Ross shows readers how to spot the patterns of inherited cancer, how to get tested for cancer-causing genes, and what to do if you have one. With a foreword by Siddartha Mukherjee, prize winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, this will be the first authoritative, go-to for people facing inherited cancer, this book empowers readers to face their genetic heritage without fear and to make decisions that will keep them and their families healthy.
