As we enter into August, many of us begin to feel the end of summer approaching. Starting in September, the kids go back to school, the weather starts to cool off, and the number of family vacations dwindle down. Because we here at Connecting Threads aren’t quite ready for summer to be over, we are offering up a fun giveaway with some of our favorite bright and cheery items.

Yay! What better way to start the week than with a thread giveaway?!?  I’d love to be able to enter but since I work here, they say I’m not allowed. Thus, unable to enter, I console myself with the thought that I get to be a part of the excitement and make some other quilter’s day!

One lucky grand prize winner will get a thread set of their choosing and two others will get 2 spools of thread in any color combination they want. I may be biased, but I personally love our thread and am so happy to have 33 new colors, giving us a new grand total of 90 colors in our cotton Essential Thread spools that we will have day in and day out.

We’re having another really fun giveaway!  We’ve been really pleased with the success of our new Essential PRO thread (ideal for long-arm quilting) and in honor of that, we have decided to give some of it away to those of you who still haven’t tried it. 

As if that weren’t enough, we are also giving away a book!  The book is Freemotion Quilting by Judy Woodworth and is a great read for anyone looking to learn how to do long-arm quilting.
