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.

I’m pretty excited that Botanical Beauty is finally out! Last spring I went to the Rhododendron Gardens here in Portland, and was simply taken away. It’s a hidden gem of a garden, and right around Mother’s Day is when the rhododendrons as well as many of the other flowers are in full bloom. It’s such a beautiful sight. I was instantly inspired by all the surrounding beauty, so when I started designing this collection I was filled with ideas.
Botanical Beauty was such a fun group of theme oriented fabrics, and I enjoyed playing with them! Garden imagery in Garden in Blues is everywhere from flora to floating butterflies, and sheets of lattice to whimsical pebbles (which are my favorite). There are a couple of fabrics that are tone-on-tone, and with the pebbles, are great transitional choices when working with the stronger colored prints. There is the flower clusters that remind me of Queen Anne’s Lace or perhaps those lovely “wishes” we find in our yards born from dandelions.

Hi, I'm Jenna. I've been with Connecting Threads about 3-1/2 years now, and have the pleasure of designing and laying out the catalog. Some of my favorite things in the world are happy, bright and modern colors and designs. I was introduced to sewing when I was young, but I just started quilting when I got this job and have fallen in love with it.
Our new Quilter’s Candy Flannel Basics are so beautiful and the quality of flannel is second to none! Bubble Gum screams fun! Made from our new line of flannels, it is sure to please even the most hesitant online fabric purchaser. I can assure you it is truly wonderful! A perfect size for a cuddle on the couch, Bubble Gum is ideal for a child’s quilt or adult who just needs the legs kept warm.
