This is a hard thing to announce, but Karen and I thought it was best that you all know what's going on. Yesterday Karen Johnson, the Connecting Threads VP, and several other staff members from other divisions of our parent company were laid off. Until now Connecting Threads has been able to resist cutbacks, but the economy finally caught up with us. I'm sure you or someone you know has been affected by this, so you know how hard it can be.
Karen will still be an active participant on Quilt With Us, and you can follow her at:http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com/profile/karenthequilter
For general Quilt With Us and Connecting Threads questions, you can still visit Karen's old profile, which is now a general Connecting Threads profile. http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com/profile/Karen
Please help me thank Karen for all of her hard work at Connecting Threads and Quilt With Us.
Best of luck in your next venture, Karen. You will be missed!
-Melissa & the entire Connecting Threads staff
