Vancouver, WA. Connecting Threads is excited to announce the expansion of our hugely popular Batik Paradise
collection. Beginning in April, we will increase the number of our gorgeous, hand crafted batiks to 96 designs.
The newly added prints stand out with bright and beautiful colors, making them perfect for spring and summer

In line with our expansion, we are introducing four new samplers – Landscape, Sunset, Mountainside, and
Waterways- designed with the art quilter in mind. Quilters can order one of each sampler to get the entire Batik
Paradise collection. Like all of our fabric, batiks are made of 100% cotton, then hand-dyed and printed by artisans
in Java, Indonesia.

Product details:
100% super combed cotton – 45” wide
60 new designs added
$6.96/ yard
