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).

    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? ...

    Gifty Galore – Project 8

    Yep, it’s me again. I told you I’d be back! My second project is from a fun Selvage Mug Rug tutorial from the Fussy Cut blog. Of course if you know me at all you know mine will not look exactly like the original tutorial 😉       I had a really good time digging through my ...

    Gifty Galore – Project 2

    Wahoo! It’s Gifty Galore time. I’m super excited about the projects this year, so excited in fact that I somehow ended up signing up for 4 of them! You will see me a lot!  My first project is from FairyFace Designs Blog and it’s a quick & easy, FREE Phone Cozy Tutorial. It was actually a lot of fun to put together and would be very easy to size up or down for different size ...

    WIP Wednesday – Let Freedom Ring

    So I just realized that next weekend is the Fourth of July weekend, it’s possible I’m running a little behind on decorating… On the other hand I could just be really early for next year! I’m sadly lacking in Independence Day Decor and have been shuffling the Let Freedom Ring Pattern around in my to-do pile for ever.

    20 years – REALLY?!

    In some ways it’s hard to believe that Connecting Threads is already having its 20 year celebration and in others it seems like it’s been around much longer. If I think back oh-so many years ago when I first started in 1995, I remember that CT was still just in the infancy stage and I was learning about quilting products by answering the phones and taking orders for them. Shortly after, I started picking the products and seeing all the ...

    Road Trip!

    My friend Monica (roped into driving so I could sew down the binding on my table runner!), my son Tyler, and I headed north of Seattle to celebrate my godson’s birthday. Of course first I had to pack the essentials… Essential Thread (30% off right now!), Clover Wonder clips, needles (40% off right now!), and my favorite pair of little scissors!

This will be an ongoing theme throughout the year so watch for updates and ...
