If you don’t already know, next year will be Connecting Threads‘ 20th anniversary. We’re pretty excited about that! To celebrate this milestone, we wanted to do something a little special. We wanted to make sure that whatever we did, we could share it with all of you, too! We were looking for something that was both aesthetically pleasing while still remaining useful.

I don’t think it’s any big secret that the folks here at Connecting Threads LOVE Christmastime. Case in point: there’s a giant snowman in our Director’s office. This year, we decided to spice up the fun factor around the office and get our customers and friends involved in the joyous celebrations that we partake in as a group. Starting tomorrow, we will be counting down the weeks until Christmas with a new, free pattern that you can download each week. What’s even better is that each of the patterns are exclusive to Connecting Threads, and written by members of our team. The patterns we will be offering are absolutely awesome. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for your guild friends, home decorating items, or fun stocking stuffers, you’ll get a little something for all of your holiday needs!
