    We’re counting down the weeks to Christmas!

    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!

    Design Contest Update!

    As many of you know, we announced our five finalists for the Fabric Design Contest a couple of weeks ago. Since the announcement, one of the designers has been disqualified from the competition as they failed to provide sufficent contact information. Given this, we made the decision to open the contest up to two additional participants. The first addition was the next runner up based on your votes. To mix things up and add an element of surprise, we decided to include a "Wild Card" finalist as well. We then needed to figure out how to decide on the Wild Card and we ultimately landed on the idea to draw the finalist's design name from a hat.
