Quilt blog entries for month: December 2012
As some of you might know, I am the catalog manager for Connecting Threads. I am responsible for laying out and designing the catalog from start to finish, but I couldn't do it without the wonderful team of people here at Connecting Threads. Take a look at this behind the scenes blog post to find out how the magic happens at the printer!
Before we get down to the business of announcing our winners from our biggest giveaway of the year, I want to take a moment and wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas. At Connecting Threads, we're so grateful to have such wonderful customers, who, through avenues like our blog, Quilt With Us, and our Facebook page, have truly become like family to us. We thank you for your continued support of our company, and look forward to serving you in the coming year.
Now, enough of all that sappy stuff. Let's announce our randomly selected winners!
The two runner up winners who will each receive a $20 gift card to Connecting Threads are:

My goal this year is to finish UFO's I have a few charity quilts that really need finishing. I would like the cabinet in white. Merry Christmas and may 2013 be the best year ever.

My quilting goal for 2013 is to make a quilt for myself. I am a beginner quilter and have made 3 lap quilts and I have given them all away. It is my turn for a quilt!

I love the look of this sewing cabinet. I've moved to a smaller space and have no room for a large sewing table--this one is just the right size! I haven't been working on any projects due to the space constraints for a large folding table.

Congratulations to all of our winners! We will be emailing you shortly to get more information.
Happy Holidays, everyone!

My grandma Willie Ann, born in 1900, was an avid quilter who taught me to sew with a thimble as a small child back in Oklahoma. I have used a thimble faithfully since then. After talking to other Connecting Threads staff members, I started to feel I was the only person who still uses a thimble. I decided to do a thimble survey...
