The team here at CT have been making our Christmas wish lists for a couple of months now. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably got more than a few items on your list for Santa this year. As quilters, we can always use more fabric, new thread colors, and handy books, but maybe this is the year we ask for some new and exciting tools, furniture and gadgets, too! The great thing about the Connecting Threads Wish List is that you don’t have to keep all of your most desired items a secret. Our site’s Wish List allows you to share those items with your friends and loved ones so easily! Worried about being too abrupt? Don’t! Sharing your wish list with them will make Christmas shopping MUCH easier. They’ll appreciate it, really!
