    So long, 2015!

    The holidays are upon us, and with them, feelings of happiness and glee fill the air here at Connecting Threads. This year, however, the holidays also bring a bit of sadness for me.

    Book Giveaway – Sew a Modern Home!

    There aren’t many things about my job that I love more than meeting some of the amazingly talented authors and bloggers out there. Melissa Lunden is no exception!

    Big Changes Are Coming to Connecting Threads!

In 2007, we began designing and selling our own fabric collections. The biggest difference between Connecting Threads and other manufacturers is that we sell our quilting fabrics directly to the consumer, thereby eliminating the need for middleman markups and allowing us to offer our fabrics at prices that are accessible for most budgets.
