    I'd say 80% of this book is just copy and pasted from other books in the series so there were several slooooowwwwwww moments that almost made me stop reading I also thought it was strange that the author would choose this particular time period to go back to because the last book in the series was much farther ahead in the future

    Sylvia the beloved co owner of Elm Creek Manor and her friends return in the latest installment of the Elm Creek uilt series This time they are asked to host the local Christmas boutiue fundraiser event and of course they do it with much enthusiasm and aplombAfter seven years the Elm Creek uilt series has returned and I could not be happier I've read and loved the entire series and revisiting each of the beloved characters did not disappoint It's difficult to believe that it's been twenty years and 21 books since the first in the series was published Dare I liken the Elm Creek Manor and its inhabitants to Downton Abbey and its beloved characters? Yes I shall If you love this series as much as I do then this is a must read Character recaps are included and I was surprised by how much I remembered about each and every one of them If you haven't read this series yet then what are you waiting for? A whole new world of likable characters and heartwarming stories awaits45 stars and definitely one of my favoritesLocation Waterford PennsylvaniaI received an advance copy of this book All opinions are my own

    I was so excited to see this book I loved this series and a new book after all this time awesomeYou will not be lost if you pick this one up for the first time there is a lot of information offered from the past books to update you but you will be missing out on some great addicting reads if you pass up the previous booksWe are back with some dear friends and updated on the lives we have come to love and now we are back at Elm CreekThese characters come alive to me through this author and I would love to go on a uilter’s retreat at the manor and spend time with Sylvia seeing as that is not possible this is the next best thingI received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher William Morrow and was not reuired to give a positive review

    Please note I read this as a free e ARC from Netgalley I was so thrilled to see a new addition to the uilter's Apprentice series It was sweet and easy read It takes place near the Christmas season as Sylvia reminisces over the many Christmas seasons that have occurred at Elm Creek Manor The story begins in present day as the Waterford uilters need a new place to host their annual Christmas Boutiue Of course Sylvia opens the Manor As the story progresses each chapter is devoted to a main character that has been involved in previous books So it was a nice review of each character and their backstory as well as bring us up to date on their lives Totally a easy and nice read to return to Waterford and Elm Creek

    The Elm Creek uilters are brought together once again in this Christmas read when the church hall floods and Elm Creek Manor has to be used for their annual Christmas fund raiser for the food pantry I didn't find this one as interesting as the previous books in this set I like Chiaverini's writing but this one didn't capture my attention like some of the others I've read Still overall a good Christmas read

    Although there are than twenty books in the Elm Creek series this was the first one I have read After reading reviews written by faithful followers of the series I find that the very things that most of them didn’t like about the book are what I like This is not an action driven book There is not a mystery to solve or a love story to sigh over This is a wonderful character study of the main women that make up the uilting community in Elm Creek It shows how strikingly different women can all come together based on the love of one thing – in this case uilting The book made me think about the friends I have had over the years and how one thing in my case the love of reading was enough to bring us together and forge strong bonds I know from the other reviews that it was disappointing to some people – but I really liked it I feel like I know the women in the book and do want to read about them I won this book through the GoodReads First Reads program for an honest review
