June Notions Newsletter

While next week marks the official start of summer, here at Connecting Threads we are getting a jump start with our newest collection, Somer’s Garden. It’s full of beautiful blooms in tangy citrus colors mixed with blues reminiscent of summer skies. Bring on the summer decorating!!

This collection brings to mind the fun, refreshing moments of summer that are filled with lemonade, fruit salads, splashing around at the beach, and endless days of sun.

Here are a few of the lovely kits made up in Somer’s Garden:

Moving on towards the golden days of late summer and early fall, when the weather is just barely starting to change and everyone moves at a more languid pace, is the Autumn Joy Fabric Collection. This collection features Jody Houghton’s Sisters – Hope, Faith, and Charity– in the warm rich tones of fall along with beautiful, floral pumpkin prints. As with most of her collections, Jody includes a panel to give you lots of options for quick and easy projects.

This collection works well for both large and small scale projects:


Autumn Joy Banner Kit & Four Zippered Pouches Kit



Some of our favorite new tools are the Zirkel Magnetic Pin Holders; make sure you watch the video – they are like magic! Another staff favorite is the new Dritz Needle Storage Tubes.

A new twist on coloring can be found with the Color Me Fabrics and Marvy Fabric Marking Pens. You can really personalize your projects by coloring the fabrics yourself.

We received so much positive feedback about our Fast, Fun and Gifty book last year that we now have a second installation – Fast, Fun, and More Gifty!
