    So long, 2015!

    The holidays are upon us, and with them, feelings of happiness and glee fill the air here at Connecting Threads. This year, however, the holidays also bring a bit of sadness for me. For five years, I have been the “marketing person” at CT, and it is with a heavy heart that I announce my upcoming departure from this amazing, fabulous, and fun company. I have ...

    Quilt Market – Fall, 2014

    Last weekend, a few of us from Connecting Threads had the opportunity to attend Quilt Market. It is always an amazing experience when we get to visit Houston. Texas really is an awesome state, and so many incredible quilters live there! In the past, we have always visited Market to find new and exciting tools and books, but this year’s visit was a little more fun because we got to look at some of the new fabric collections coming out! After ...

    Sew a Modern Home book by Melissa Lunden
    Book Giveaway – Sew a Modern Home!

    There aren’t many things about my job that I love more than meeting some of the amazingly talented authors and bloggers out there. Melissa Lunden is no exception! When her new book came across my desk, I knew that I needed to meet this incredibly talented person! Her design aesthetic is chic, classic, and, in my opinion, not so modern that it can’t work in most homes. I found her quilts to be stunning, and some of her smaller ...

I want to start out by saying how lucky I feel to have such awesome coworkers here at CT. During my time away, my colleagues took on so many of my duties and truly let me focus my energy on my new job: taking care of ...

    Happy Boxing Day!

    Having spent a good portion of my childhood in northern British Columbia, and having celebrated many Boxing Days with my Canadian friends and family, today is one that is very special to me. Every year on Boxing Day, I remember back when I was a young child, gathered around with our closest friends and family and playing games, telling stories, and generally just enjoying the company of those I love most. While we don’t travel to Canada much these days, ...

    Behind the Scenes of our Christmas Video

    As if it's not fun enough working at a company surrounded by such crafty and talented people, sometimes our work could even be deemed as play which is pretty awesome! It all started when one of our interns, CJ, conjured up the idea behind this year's Christmasvideo. This year Crafts Americana Group participated in an internship program with a local high school. A few days a week we get a helping hand from several students. It's been so great getting to know them a little more and working with them these past few months. When CJ was asked to brainstorm some ideas for this year's video, he went straight to work and came up with this gem.
