What happens when famed quilt designer Lissa Alexander invites her quilting heroines to create scrap quilts alongside her? Scrapalicious magic! Lissa reached out to celebrity 'sister' quilters from all walks of life and proposed a theme; then she and each designer made their own version of a quilt based on that theme. The result? Spectacular scrap quilts from true masters of the craft, and an invitation for all quilters to join the Sisterhood of Scraps! Create a dozen stunning quilts inspired by everything from simple squares to Trip Around the World designs (one assembled from a 34-year-old scrap stash!). Quilters can start a quilting bee, build a community, and bring new sisters into the fold as they make these stunning projects. Also inside is a Sisterhood of Scraps certificate that quilters can hang in their sewing space to show that they're a proud member of the Sisterhood. The 6 designers in Sisterhood of Scraps include: Laurie Simpson Sandy Klop Sheryl Johnson Kim Brackett Barbara Brackman Susan Ache

In a time lost in legend, the Isles of Wenaya were united in worship of Javander, goddess of the seas. From her fantastical palace beneath the waves, Javander presided over a caste of priestesses, linked in a thrumming psychic web. Then the web was broken, Javander's people turned to false gods and the priestesses who once served her so well became the Sisterhood of the Blue Storm . . . Ten boys on the cusp of adulthood arrive on the empty tropical island of Xaro to undergo their Manhood Trial, an age-old ritual meant to build character as they leave their childhood behind. They thought they could survive alone. But that was before the killing began. That was before the Blue Storm. To this island of dark magic come Jem and his companions, pursuing their mystic quest for the long-lost crystals of the Orokon, desperate to find Javinder's blue jewel before Jem's evil rival, the anti-god Toth-Vexrah, gets there. Never has the quest been so perilous. Originally released under the pseudonym Tom Arden

In this epic drama of personality and politics, passion and ambition, courage and betrayal, Marcia Cohen tells the fascinating inside story of the feminist revolution through the lives of the women who made it-and were sometimes unmade by it. Focusing on Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Germaine Greer, and Kate Millett, "The Sisterhood" is a revealing group portrait of the women whose ideas and actions have so profoundly transformed us all. This classic account traces the women's movement from its quiet birth in the 1960s through its startling triumphs in the 1970s and its troubled legacy in the 1980s. Today, everything seems possible for women as they function on an equal plane with men in nearly every walk of life. But the revolution was hard won. Now the irreverent, entertaining chronicle that reveals all the well-kept secrets of feminism, with a thoughtful new foreword by the author, appears in a special edition that serves as a riveting social history, casting light on an entire era so important for women as well as men. Marcia Cohen is a journalist/historian, a former editor at Hearst, Gannett, and the "New York Daily News," whose articles have appeared in "The New York Times Magazine" and "New York Magazine" as well as many other national publications. Born in Binghamton, New York, she is an honors graduate of Harvard and now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has studied art in Santa Fe and at the Art Students League in New York.

"Home and family," for a woman of the nineteenth century, represented a sphere much broader than the term implies today. A woman's duties as sister and daughter continued, basically unchanged, even after she had assumed the roles of wife and mother. This created a female-centered kin network which went far beyond the fragile nuclear family, and which insured lifelong security in what men and women viewed as an essentially hostile world. The female family is vividly portrayed in True Sisterhood, where Marilyn Ferris Motz examines the lives of white Protestant native-born American women living in Michigan between 1820 and 1920 and the kinship networks to which they belonged--networks that often extended east to New England and the Middle Atlantic states and westward as far as California. The University of Michigan's Bentley Library collections of the correspondence, diaries, photographs, and other documents of numerous family groups have provided the primary resources for this study of thirty extended families. Focusing on personal interaction within the family, Motz shows women playing an active role that is not suggested by observation of residence patterns, household composition, or legal distribution of authority. The book reveals women's use of language to maintain personal relationships, to persuade and manipulate, and to obtain support. Thus the power base of the woman, her informal networks based on personal interaction, persuasion, and sense of obligation, become visible. True Sisterhood shows that women's influence was not merely a fabrication of the literature of what has come to be termed the "cult of domesticity" but was a reality within many nineteenth-century homes.

It is eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind. The war hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on politics and Salusa Secundus. The descendants of Abulurd Harkonnen Griffen and Valya have sworn vengeance against Vor, blaming him for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School on the jungle planet Rossak as the first Reverend Mother. The descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats...and hiding an unbelievable secret. The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of "dangerous technology," is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path. Every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. All of them will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever....

This volume, which gathers prominent scholars, feminists, womanists, and creative writers from Africa and the African Diaspora, engages with candor and vigor issues and conflicts in feminism and black women studies - feminism and womanism debates, sisterhood and power struggles, research and documentation questions, elite and grassroots women relationship, urban and rural dichotomy, African and the African Diaspora relationship. Focusing on the pluralism of feminisms, these essays address the conflict between indigenous African feminisms and the radicalism of variants of Western feminism with their emphasis on sexuality and seeming oppositions to motherhood. They collectively argue that the African environment specifically should provide the context for any meaningful analysis of feminisms on the continent. The volume weaves theoretical questions, personal and collective engagements into a complex tapestry that spans Africa and the African Diaspora - from women organizing for change in South Africa and women's insurgency against colonialism in Nigeria to the problems of doing research on women in Uganda and building of a sisterhood in Memphis, Tennessee.

In a century almost continually at odds with the proper place of females, Catherine Esther Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Isabella Beecher Hooker shared a commitment to women's power. Although they did not always agree on the nature of that power, each in her own way--Catherine as educator and author of advice literature; Harriet as author of novels, tales, and sketches; and Isabella as a women's rights advocate--devoted much of her adult life to elevating women's status and expanding women's influence.

The Gynarchy reigns; the battle is long over. The violence and stupidity of men has been, appropriately, suppressed and brought under, necessary, control. But there is still. . . history. While "The Protocols" are a recognized forgery--part of the Masculinist propaganda that sought to block or forestall the inevitable rise, The Restoration, of The Gynarchy--from a scholarly perspective, we believe, the text remains worthy of study. It is "a difficult read," choppy and discontinuous, internally inconsistent in a variety of ways. It yokes together narrative, journal entries, patent applications, study abstracts, and a variety of other scraps and fragments, some of which have a frankly pornographic tinge. "The Timeline" doesn't work, in all kinds of ways. And yet. . . "The Protocols" provide an important and useful "window" on the perspective of the shrinking and ragged band of men who attempted to thwart the inevitable. If it isn't of scholarly interest? We suspect that it may have at least some entertainment value.
