We’re counting down the weeks to Christmas!

I don’t think it’s any big secret that the folks here at Connecting Threads LOVE Christmastime. Case in point: there’s a giant snowman in our Director’s office.

This year, we decided to spice up the fun factor around the office and get our customers and friends involved in the joyous celebrations that we partake in as a group. Starting tomorrow, we will be counting down the weeks until Christmas with a new, free pattern that you can download each week. What’s even better is that each of the patterns are exclusive to Connecting Threads, and written by members of our team. The patterns we will be offering are absolutely awesome, if we do say so ourselves. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for your guild friends, home decorating items, or fun stocking stuffers, you’ll get a little something for all of your holiday needs!

We’re using an Advent Calendar-style page to help us count down the weeks.

Click here to view the page and get first access to the new patterns as they are released: 12 Weeks of Christmas . We recommend that you bookmark the page so that you can find it easily each week when the new free patterns get turned on. It’s a good idea to check back each week so that you don’t miss out on the occasional sale that may pop up. We want to make sure that everyone has a chance to get the patterns and specials easily so we will also be announcing the new releases in our weekly newsletters, on our Facebook page, and also on our 12 Weeks of Christmas Pinterest board.

We hope that you’ll follow along with us and share the pictures of your finished projects on our Facebook page or Pinterest. If you do post your finished projects to Pinterest, be sure to tag it with #12WOC so that we can see it and repin it to our board!

    I’ve been checking the page linked above to the place to find each pattern as it’s released but that page is blank other than the header picture. The pictures above all still show ‘coming soon’ also. Help?
