ooks For You is a Canadian company created by Marian Parry, a founding member of the Ottawa Valley Guild of Stichery who has held several positions with the Embroiderers' Association of Canada. Marian recognized the need for Canadian stitchers to have access to a supply of embroidery books to help them develop their skills and techniques. Marian established "Books for You", which has undoubtedly met this need and made tremendous contribution to the development and enjoyment of Canadian stitchers. As of June 1999, Carole Van Die has taken over "Books for You" and will continue to serve you in the manner established by Marian.



We are in the process of scaling back our book business and will give a 35 per cent discount on the price listed on our website for all of our books. In the past we have kept books on the website that we had in stock and books that we could obtain through special orders. We will now only list on our website the books that we actually have in stock, when a title is sold out, we will remove it from the website. We will no longer make special orders. We are located in Greely a village in Ottawa. If you are in the area and wish to come and browse the books please call ahead at 613 821 3096 and we will do our best to accommodate you.
