If you don't already know, next year will be Connecting Threads' 20th anniversary. We're pretty excited about that! To celebrate this milestone, we wanted to do something a little special. We wanted to make sure that whatever we did, we could share it with all of you, too! We were looking for something that was both aesthetically pleasing while still remaining useful. With everyone's lives getting busier and busier, we figured a calendar would be just the ticket.

It's going to a fantastic year for a few lucky people! Quiltmaker Magazine is hosting their biggest Treasure Hunt contest ever, and we're so proud to announce that we're a sponsor this year. Connecting Threads will be giving away $15 gift cards to all 2nd place winners.
Four Grand Prizes include a Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen sit-down longarm machine, a PFAFF quilt expression 4.2 sewing machine, a quilter's ironing package from Reliable Irons and a Wallaby cabinet from one of our favorite vendors, Kangaroo Kabinets. There will be 25 additional prize packages overflowing with fabric, thread, books, Connecting Threads gift cards, and more -- almost $600 worth of quilty goodness in each package. In total, there will be over $24,000 worth of prizes. Amazing!
As you browse our site, be on the lookout for the 2013 Quiltmaker Treasure Hunt icon (shown above). Find it, click it, and fill out the entry form. That's all you have to do to be entered!
If you want to find out more details, click here. Otherwise, be on the lookout for that icon while you look around our site. Here's a little hint to help in your search:
You'll find the Treasure Hun ticon when you find the beautiful Sampler of our Quilter's Candy basics with "2013" in the name.
Good luck and happy hunting!
EDIT: We apologize, but Quiltmaker Magazine has requested that this contest only be open to US Residents.
As many of you know, we announced our five finalists for the Fabric Design Contest a couple of weeks ago. Since the announcement, one of the designers has been disqualified from the competition as they failed to provide sufficent contact information. Given this, we made the decision to open the contest up to two additional participants. The first addition was the next runner up based on your votes. To mix things up and add an element of surprise, we decided to include a "Wild Card" finalist as well. We then needed to figure out how to decide on the Wild Card and we ultimately landed on the idea to draw the finalist's design name from a hat.

Confession time –as you may or may not know, I've spent most of this year making pillows...
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Color Theory Giveaway! Using a random number generator, we have selected our two winners!
Runner-up prize winner will receive their choice of a Quilter's Candy Solid Fat Quarter Sampler (they may choose from: Berry Patch, Oceanfront, and Foliage).
Our runner-up prize winner is comment #122: Judy S.
Her comment: Decisions, decisions! I can't decide between the green family or the yellows to oranges. Either one makes me happy.
The grand-prize winner will receive an Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool, a Fons & Porter Design Wall, and a Swatch Buddies 24 card swatch fan.
Our grand prize winner is comment #144: Evelyn F.
Her comment: WOW! Tough decision, but will have to go with the Foliage colors as I think about projects for Autumn.
Thanks again to everyone who participated and followed along each week. We have emailed our winners and as soon as we hear back, we will send out their prizes. Congratulations to our two winners!
