Vancouver, WA. - Connecting Threads is excited to introduce six new fabric collections: Canterbury by Country
Essentials and five mini collections; each designed to perfectly coordinate with our Quilter’s Candy basics.  

The Canterbury collection features delicate filigreed florals and a wonderful bias plaid.  Each print can stand alone beautifully, but mixed together, they produce something even more special.  The focal features lush colors and elegant floral designs. This bold, beautiful collection will evoke feelings of comfort and luxury. 

The mini collections being introduced in March, 2011 include:
•    Zippee – a quirky and lovable fabric that is ideal for kid projects. 
•    Around Town – a vibrant collection full of fun city-inspired images and bright colors.
•    Homegrown – a beautiful collection of bold garden images, dainty patterns, and bright, rich colors.
•    Abigail’s Garden – a collection of traditional elegance that features an array of lush floral patterns, well-coordinated with neutral tone-on-tone basics.
•    Sunday Afternoon – a feminine collection with the perfect balance of whimsical and modern with floral mosaic patterns, intertwined with simplistic designs and bright, fresh colors.

All of Connecting Threads’ fabrics are designed in-house and our newest mini-collections will be the first collections to be introduced by our wonderful new fabric designer, Jenni Calo.
