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).

    A Book Review and Giveaway: Vintage Quilt Revival

    I love the concept behind the Vintage Quilt Revival book as well as the book itself. The three women who wrote this book all come from different places but are all connected through quilting. That in a nutshell is how a lot of us quilters came together; while we may not have anything else in common, including the quilts we choose to create, we all still have a love of quilts and quilting that unites us.

    Modern Mary Jane Bag in Canvas

    Ok, I admit that I was a little nervous about sewing with canvas. I have never sewn with anything but flannel and flat cotton, well except that one time I tried to hem my jeans… let’s just say that’s a topic best left alone. The bright cheeriness of the Fiesta canvas over took my fear so I decided to give it a try.

    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.

    Peek A Boo Table Runner

    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

    Of course when the Shake It Up! Flannel fabric came in I LOVED it! I mean, snowmen and snow globes, forget about it! I knew I had to make a pillowcase out of it for my son.

    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.)
