Submitting a Book Proposal
Thank you for your interest in publishing a book with us! C&T Publishing is always excited to review new work and techniques in the areas of quilting, fiber arts, craft sewing, general sewing, and fabric based mixed media. We love that you thought of submitting to us and appreciate the opportunity to review your work.
C&T Publishing publishes approximately 60 Products each year—please download our current catalogs to see our selection.
We are also accepting submissions for our Stash Books imprint. This list of titles is geared toward the craft sewer and modern quilter and features enticing photography, innovative designs using contemporary fabrics.
Over our 25 years in business we have achieved strong sales distribution through book stores, quilt shops, and craft, needlework, and sewing stores. We also simultaneously offer both print and e-books editions of all of our new releases.
We encourage you to submit your proposal via email. Proposals submitted electronically are appreciated and can be reviewed more quickly. Your proposal must consist of the following documents:
- Book Proposal Questionnaire: click to download a WORD doc or a PDF
- Full and complete proposed table of contents
- Sample writing and photographs or sketches of all proposed projects must be attached and/or sample images of completed work for process based proposals
Physical samples of your work are not necessary at this stage only photographs or electronic images are required. If your proposal advances in our review process, we may request samples at that time.
For your proposal to have the best opportunity for success, please do take some time to be sure your proposal is complete. Bear in mind that your attention to detail and accuracy in following our guidelines is our first impression. We appreciate the work it takes to get a proposal to us and we're glad to answer any questions about the process.
Your proposal is important to us and we review each thoroughly; therefore, please allow 8-10 weeks for our review process. Due to the amount of time we dedicate to each proposal, we request that you do not simultaneously submit your proposal to other publishers. If you do choose to submit your proposal to multiple publishers, please let us know upon submission.
