Amazon sales tax

Quick update: Amazon begins charging sales tax tomorrow 9/15. If there’s anything you wanted to order, today’s the day!

More details are available from the Daily Breeze article. And the Guild appreciates orders placed through our Amazon links on this site. 🙂

Happy shopping,


Quilted Gifts from Your Scraps & Stash book

I must admit, the cover of this book gets my attention — lots of pink and flowers. The book is just released and I haven’t seen it in a store yet, but I’ll buy it through our Amazon link.

Reviewing the book on Amazon, the Table of Contents includes sections for:

  • 5-Hour Favorites
  • 10-Hour Treats
  • 17-Hour Sensations
  • 24-Hour Treasures
  • Take Your Time

The projects are appropriate for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, house warmings, and more. I see coasters, an armchair chatelaine, a tote bag, a baby quilt, ruffled flowers … many items to choose from.

Each project includes Project Specifications, Materials, Cutting instructions, Completion steps, and pictures to illustrate the steps.

I see a few things I would like to make. How about you?

Amazon Associates program has ended

This evening, the Amazon Associates program has ended for all California participants. An excerpt from the Amazon email:

Unfortunately, Governor Brown has signed into law the bill that we emailed you about earlier today. As a result of this, contracts with all California residents participating in the Amazon Associates Program are terminated effective today, June 29, 2011. Those California residents will no longer receive advertising fees for sales referred to,, MYHABIT.COM or Please be assured that all qualifying advertising fees earned before today will be processed and paid in full in accordance with the regular payment schedule.

Thank you to all who have supported our Guild by placing Amazon orders through our web link! The income from the program has provided additional opportunities for the Guild in our educational and charitable endeavors, and we are grateful.

I will remove the Amazon Associates links from the SBQG website over the holiday weekend.


Using SBQG Amazon Link

With the holidays just around the corner, I wanted to remind the Guild members that SBQG belongs to the Amazon Associates program. If you (or family or friends) plan to order through Amazon, you can click this Amazon link or the Amazon picture in the right-hand column of our website. The Guild earns a referral fee (4% to 10%) for orders initiated through the SBQG site. (For your privacy, our monthly Amazon report does not show who ordered what.)

Also, once you reach the Amazon page, why not add the page to your browser’s Favorites/Bookmarks for easy shopping the next time? Our unique web link includes the text tag=soubayqui-20 in it.

Happy Holidays and happy shopping!
