I have worked for Connecting Threads since 1997. I am the Merchandising/Project Manager. I coordinate getting our patterns tested and samples sewn for photography. I also monitor our website content. This is a great place to work! Quilts and coworkers that share the love of quilting, what more could I ask for in a job?

Having good, sharp cutting instruments will make all the difference in the world! Here are some of my favorite things! For starters, I love the Olfa Quick Change Rotary Cutter–the 45mm is the one I use most of the time.  It is great for left or right handed quilters. I admit, I have a hard time ...

    Bobbi Blackbird and Candy Cardinal

    I have been so happy since Bobbi Blackbird and Candy Cardinal came into my life. Just kidding. No, I’m not. These adorable litle pincusions make me smile every time I look at them. I collect fun pincushions that I display in my sewing room and change them throughout the year. I would use Bobby for every day and Candy during the holidays.
