The Tilda concept started with two books in 1999, and they soon became bestsellers in Norway. Over the years many Tilda books have been published with a vast range of craft ideas, most of them still in print. The books mainly contain sewing, doll-making ideas and patterns, but also paper and home decor projects. Tilda books are also known for the interiors built around the projects.

Tilda books have been translated into 18 different languages, and are available in most of the world and online at Amazon.
