I have worked at Connecting Threads since August of 1995 - I started when I was really young :). Over the years I've had many jobs and many titles (some official some not) but I love the one I have now most, Director of Connecting Threads. This allows me to be involved in all aspects of quilting which it really fun (it's not because I'm really bossy).

    Little Marshmallow has arrived! Isn’t he just the cutest little ice block snowman you’ve ever seen?

    Animal ABCs Alligator

    I love Penguin & Fish’s embroidery, so when her newest fabric collection (Animal ABCs) came out, I fell for that hook, line & sinker. Animal ABCs is such an adorable fabric line; so soft and sweet. Immediately I wanted to make an alligator out of it… I know soft and sweet and alligator don’t usually go together, but ...

    Raindrop Pillow in Birchtree Lane

    I love this pillow! Not only is it a great way to showcase cute fabrics but it’s also a very appropriate subject for the Pacific Northwest which is where I call home. I was surfing the web looking for a pillow pattern and ran across this tutorial for the Raindrop Pillow. When I saw this pattern ...

    Boxer Photoshoot (4)
    Sewing Ninja Boxers

    There were many firsts in this project – first clothing sewn, first elastic, first pair of boxers for my son… When Year of the Ninja came out I immediately knew I had to make something for my son. He is in Taekwondo and I knew he would love the fabric. I first thought pajama pants ...

    Dwell Mini Quilts in Oh Clementine

    I have completely jumped on the mini quilt bandwagon. I have always loved table runners and small projects because I like to be able to finish a project in a reasonable amount of time every once and a while rather than just have 20+ UFO’s laying around with nothing to show for it!

    Around the Block Quilt in Yosemite Flannel

    When we receive our sewing sample fabric for every fabric collection we carry, our project manager, Judy, brings a sheet around to each of the quilters here at CT that shows pictures of all the projects that need to be made out of that collection. If we sew the sample and pay for the quilting (or do it ourselves), we get to keep the quilt once is has been photographed for the catalog. I knew even before Judy came around that I ...

    Gifty Galore – Project 19

    Me again, back with another fun project. This time, I decided to step it up a notch and I’m making the Scrappy Make-up Pouch. I was distracted by the cuteness and didn’t notice the zipper until I’d already signed up. A Zipper! I signed up to do a project with a ZIPPER! Who did I think I was? ...
