We have our thread winners!

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone!  We had a record-breaking 1,444 comments on our thread giveaway — WOW!  Thank you so much to everyone who participated.  In honor of our new contest record, we decided that three winners just isn’t enough — we need five! We still only have one grand prize winner, but we now have four runner-ups. Hooray!

Now on to the exciting part…

Our grand prize winner is comment number 880 — Bonnie.  Bonnie selected the Garden Thread Set as her prize.

It’s a reeeeeally tough decision, but I think in the thread sets I’d have to go with the Essential Garden thread set . . . in individual spools, I guess I’d go with Surf and Fuchsia. They all look fantastic, though – I wish I could afford one of each!

Our runner-up winners are:

Comment number 1140 – Cathy Bremer.  Cathy will receive a spool of Calypso and Sweet Pink.
Oh, to choose only one set! My 98 year old MIL and I do a lot of QOV so I better pick Americana although I really love Woodland and Confections! And for the two favorites…..Calypso and Sweet Pink. Thank you.

Comment number 1068 – Anna Branch.  Anna will receive a spool of Goldenrod and Sprout.
Oh, boy, how do you choose just one set? I decided to be practical and choose the one that contained the colours I most use so that would be the Fauna. I love brown tones. For my spool choices, I went with my other love and chose the sprout and goldenrod. I really like citrus colours and use them a lot in my quilting.

Comment number 474 – Sandi.  Sandi will receive a spool of French Blue and Steel Blue.
I think the Rainbow Collection or is it the Farmer’s Market? So difficult to choose. I love them all. Two singles would be the French Blue & Steel Blue. Thank you for the opportunity to win anything from Connecting Threads.

and last but not least…

Comment number 58 – Dana.  Dana will receive a spool of Sea Breeze and Custard.
That was hard, so many beautiful colors and I love your thread. I would pick the Confections (gorgeous) and Sea Breeze with Custard. Thanks.
