Hi everyone, Alisha here! If you haven't heard the big news, I'm about to welcome my first
little baby into the world. My due date is January 6th, but the way I'm
waddling around, I'm not sure it's going to take that long! As many of
you know, it is hard work to prepare for a new child. Between decorating
a nursery, picking a name, and the seemingly endless amount of time you
spend at the doctor's office, it's amazing if you can find a few
minutes to yourself! I suppose it's good preparation for when the kiddo
finally arrives. I think my favorite part of the whole process has been
decorating the nursery. Though, I have to say, it is much harder than I
Little known fact: I suffer from something called chromatophobia.
Depending on who you ask, it's really not as bad as it sounds, but it
definitely adds a whole new layer of complication into the process of
designing a room. Basically, what it breaks down to mean is that I get a
lot of anxiety from bright colors and a lot of contrast. When you
consider that babies love bright colors and lots of contrast, you can
see how this task might have been fairly daunting to me. When I first
started my planning, I thought I would go with a very neutral palette.
In my mind, my dream nursery would look something like this...

results are in and we are pleased to announce that Virginia Odien has
been selected as the winner in our 2013 Fabric Design Contest. Our
voting process followed the same format that we use for our in-house
focus groups. Each finalist's collection was presented on a design
board, and each panel member was given anonymous survey sheets to fill
out. Each person who participated in the voting process provided
feedback on each of the collections. Participants were asked to rate the
collections based on their overall appeal, salability, marketability,
and usability in quilting. Once they completed their survey sheets, they
were placed into an envelope for no one else to see until voting was
complete. Once the deadline for voting had been met, our Marketing
Director - Alisha - tallied all of the survey sheets and presented the
results to Connecting Threads Director, Teri Stillwell, and in-house
Fabric Designer, Jenni Calo.
