Forget Me Knot by Mary Marks – This series is for the quilters who enjoy a good mystery. A quilting circle of retired women in California have invited a new and very talented quilter to their group. When the newest member is found dead just as they install their exhibit at the annual quilting competition, Martha Rose and her quilting companions won’t rest until they find out who would stoop to murder.  
 
Twisted Threads by Lea Wait – When bounty hunter’s assistant Angie Curtis is summoned back to coastal Maine by her grandmother, she finds herself smack in the middle of murders both old and new. The body of Angie’s long missing mother has been found but before that mystery can be solved, her grandmother’s needlepoint business manager is also found dead. Could the new murder somehow be connected to Angie’s mother’s murder and does that mean someone in her grandmother’s needlepoint group is a murderer?
 
Frill Kill by Laura Childs – Not all arts and crafts involve yarn or thread so this one is for the paper-based arts and crafts crowd. Childs vividly portrays New Orleans and some wonderfully zany personalities along with lots of scrapbooking and, of course, murder solving. The murder of a model leads amateur sleuth Carmela on a wild chase involving tarot readers, non-human forensics and the French Quarter at its Halloween finest.
 
Pane and Suffering by Cheryl Hollon – Featuring glass artist Savannah Webb whose first foray into sleuthing is to solve the murder of her own father. While Savannah is trying to come to terms with her father’s death and settle the fate of the family glass shop, another mysterious death leads to danger and suspects aplenty.
