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).
