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).

    Snow Flakes Mini Runner

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Snow Flakes Mini Runner! It is absolutely adorable. First, of course, I love snowmen; second, it’s mini– who doesn’t love mini?; and third, it was quick and easy. What a trifecta. This was super simple to make, no matching and the embroidery is primitive so it shouldn’t be perfect. It was fun to make all the different expressions with embroidery and different size and type of buttons ...

    Abundance Table Runner

    The Abundance Table Runner was a fun pattern to sew; of course I loved it because it’s Quilt As You Go. I love the fact that once I’m done sewing I can just bind it and be done.

    I really love how the colors from the Mix It Up! Collection peek out (aptly named!) of the black background like little jewels.

    Magic Pillow Cases

    It’s Christmas in July?

    We quilters know it takes time to get ready for any holiday, especially Christmas, so in order to give you lots of time to get your projects done, the majority of our Christmas prints come out in June/July. (Yes we know you still wait until November to actually sew the stuff, but let’s all just continue to pretend this will be the year we get it together and start early.)

    Organizing Assistant!

    I have been in an organizing mood something fierce this year. I’ve cleaned out every closet, drawer, and shelf in the house. We recently redid my sewing room and I reorganized most of that stuff when we moved but I was pulling together an embroidery project when I noticed the box of embroidery threads was a nest of partially used floss. I pulled it out and my son, who was in my sewing area looking out the window, came over ...

    My New Sewing Area

    Four years ago I had a son whom I love beyond belief and we were overjoyed when he came into our lives. On the other hand I lost my coveted sewing room. I got shoved in with the spare room and had to consolidate, which is a nasty word when you are talking about fabric! I prefer to talk about expanding my stash NOT consolidating. Apparently I have been pathetic enough because this year for Mother’s Day I ended up getting new furniture and now I am sharing the media room with my husband.

    My First Quilt Retreat

    I went on my very first quilt retreat last weekend and it was sooo much fun! There were seven of us girls, six of us travelled from around here and the seventh came from the Seattle area to meet us. We ate, we drank, we danced, we quilted, and we were most definitely merry!
