Quilt designing and writing are a fundamental part of my responsibilities at Connecting Threads.
It is without a doubt, the most delightful job. One can only wish to
have a job like this! Interestingly enough, it’s a challenge to write
this because it’s like telling someone how to play! You just do it!
I have the best job ever! Some of the others here may tell
you that they have the best job, but really I do. I spend my day dreaming of fabric, quilts, and sewing projects. And I get paid to do that!!! Could it get
any better? Well, yes, actually it does.
Hi, I’m Ann. I feel blessed to have had my dream job at Connecting Threads (CT) for almost two years. Most of my role revolves around the development, editing, maintenance, and archiving of quilt patterns.
What do I do? Have fun mostly! I am Anita McIntire and I am your friendly Download Pattern
Coordinator. What is a Download Pattern Coordinator, you ask? I get
to set up all of the download patterns that are sold on our website.
Yes, I am the queen of instant gratification!
As you may imagine, when your company operates exclusively through a
catalog and online store, the accuracy of content that we put out there
is VERY important to our customers. Every four or five weeks, a team of
people from Connecting Threads come together to look meticulously over
the pages of our upcoming catalog, and make any last minute changes that
may arise. While there are still little typos that sneak through
the cracks once in a while, we do our best to make sure that every i is
dotted and every t is crossed.
