Vancouver, WA. Connecting Threads is proud to announce that the cotton for all of our new fabric collections is grown in the USA and  woven and printed North America. As a result, starting in July 2009, our customers will find the new Cotton USA logo throughout our website and catalog—we’re honored to be one of the few quilting companies authorized to display it. According to the International Cotton Council, “The COTTON USA Mark identifies and distinguishes cotton grown in the USA, the world’s largest supplier of high quality cotton and the leading innovator in enhancing the performance of cotton products. “

Going through the stringent approval process of the International Cotton Council hasn’t changed anything about Connecting Threads’ fabric collections. All of our fabric is woven from 100% super combed cotton for a flawlessly smooth and lustrous feel, and it is still only $5.96 per yard. All of our fabrics are free of formaldehyde, lead, and phthalates.  By going directly to the source, selling our fabrics directly to consumers instead of whole sale, and using no-frills packaging we are able to offer our customers high quality fabric at an unexpected price.
