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).

    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.   When I saw the

    2012 Tyler & I sewing on CT Project
    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! My son ...

    Neutral Love II + Vintage Quilt Revival = Pillow Love

    When we received the samples for our Neutral Love II collection I knew right away I had to have one if not several things made out of it. When I was reviewing the book Vintage Quilt Revival I thought exactly the same thing so I thought why not put them together and see what comes of it. Somebody did that with peanut butter and chocolate and look at how much better the world is now!
