Welcome to our new Staff Blog!

We’ve given ourselves a facelift!  Now, in addition to our Quilt With Us quilting community, we have a new and improved Connecting Threads Staff Blog, called Notions.  Now you can see what we’re up to at any time, and all in one spot.  If you use an RSS feeder, you’ll be able to follow us with ease. 

You don’t have to join anything, and if you want to make a commment on our blog posts, you just enter your name and email address.  Your email won’t display.  You can even have the site “remember” you so you don’t have to retype your info every time.

You can find the link to Notions from our ConnectingThreads.com home page, under the Freebies tab.  You can also find a list of the most recent Notions blog posts right on the Quilt With Us home page, under Connecting Threads Staff Blog.

Read about our Staff by clicking About Us – at the upper right side of this page.

    Love your new blog. I’ve loved your fabrics for quite a while now and I find your instructions on your kits beyond perfect!

    Your fabric and thread is top notch for the price. Thank you so much. Being a hand quilter, I’d love to see finger cots for sewers added to the notions.

    I love your fabrics, website and catalogs. Now I will get to read your blogs. Thanks for letting me be a part of your company.

    I’m so excited with my first order from Connecting Threads. The fabrics are beautiful and the prices are well within my budget. Thank you, thank you! Keep up the good work.

    Do you know how I can follow your blog using Google Reader? Usually I can paste the blog URL and it will add it to my Google Reader, but it doesn’t work when I try to paste http://www.connectingthreads.com/blog/. Thanks!

    Deb G, I’m checking on Google Reader and will get back to you.

    We think it’s a browser setting that determines where the RSS link goes. Different browsers choose different default RSS readers. They’ll probably phase out Bloglines with the next version update.
    That’s strange, I had the same problem. I got Google Reader to work by right clicking on the RSS link above and clicking “Copy Link Location” (http://www.connectingthreads.com/cfBlog/feeds/rss.cfm) and pasting it into Google Reader. Hope that works for you!
