Black Friday Sales Start Today!

Who doesn't love the convenience of shopping from home (or work...it's okay, we won't tell), sipping some warm coffee, and snapping up great deals, without having to deal with the stress of the normal Black Friday mayhem?

It’s time again to Win Your Wish List!

It's time again for Connecting Threads' favorite contest of the year: the Win Your Wish List contest! While everyone here on the Connecting Threads team has been making our gift giving lists and checking them twice, we've also been thinking about what we'd like to find under the tree this season. That's why we love Connecting Threads' Wish List. Not only does it make it easy to keep track of everything on your lotto list (you know, all the things you'd splurge on if you won the lottery...), but it's also simple to drop your friends and family some not-so-subtle hints now that the holidays are just around the corner. Wouldn't it be nice to get the things you really want this year?

When brought together, these fabrics produce some truly stunning quilts and other small projects.
