Meet Patrice!

Ever wonder who’s behind those gorgeous exclusive fabrics you see on our site? Meet Patrice, our senior textile designer here at Connecting Threads. Patrice says she’s always been fascinated by repeating patterns and colorful designs. When she was a kid, she loved tagging along to the fabric store to help her mom pick out fabrics.

*Fun fact: I traveled to Quilt Market with Patrice in 2017 and can attest that she’s a true pattern enthusiast! From the airport carpet to the hotel wallpaper, Patrice had thoughtful insight on ALL the patterns we came across!

In her spare time, Patrice loves to work on handmade projects of all kinds, but you won’t find her using patterns very often! She has a special knack for figuring out how to recreate things from photographs, and likes to make up the pattern as she goes along. She’s a talented person and we’re so lucky to have her on our team!

    Hi Patrice! I have been a Connecting Threads customer for quite a few years, and frankly I buy almost all of my quilting fabrics from you. I love your fabric collections – the style, the colors, the quality and the price. I was “tickled” when you started the LUXE line. At first I questioned the price increase, but when I received the fabric I just loved the feel and color translation to fabric. You do a GREAT job. I purchase over and over and never get tired of the choices you give us. I probably have more of your fabric than I will use in my lifetime and I intend to buy more! :o)

    I’ve been watching your up-tick in “other” producer lines. I never buy them – Connection Threads products are just as nice (or nicer) with more patterns per collection and MUCH more affordable. I so hope you don’t stop offering Connection Threads exclusives! Please Please – keep Connecting Threads offerings strong. I would hate to lose the patterns, colors, quality and price you offer. – CT Lover – Diane :o)
