You may have noticed we’ve had a few changes in the past week. Our Connecting Threads website got a pretty new facelift, we’ve added brand new solids, semi solids and batiks, and we’ve lowered our prices on all fabrics. Whew!
Did I mention Batiks?
These things take time and talent to develop. So behind the scenes, we’ve made some major personnel changes. Melissa, formerly our Art Director for all three of our catalogs, is now Director of Connecting
Threads. A quilter herself, she now oversees every detail for our Connecting Threads products, catalogs and
website. Trust me, it’s a full plate! So now our fabric designers quilt designers, web graphics folks, etc that make CT happen, all work directly with Melissa. You’ll hear from Melissa here on QWU when she has new fabric collections and projects to tell you about. You might have noticed she also designs fabrics herself. Check out her newest oh-so-cute fabric collection, Winter Fun.
Did I mention we now have Batiks? :) In case you didn’t know, I’m a HUGE fan of batiks and I’ve been dreaming of the day we could carry them. But our challenges were to find a source that would be true to the age old process, while keeping the prices reasonable AND still use our US cotton. No easy task, but I’m tickled pink that we can now proudly share with you this fabulous new fabric collection.
Did I mention Batiks? Oh, did I tell you they’re only $5.96 per yard???!!!
out, they were gone! We’ll still have those, and you’ll find them on our website under Limited Editions. Just like your favorite quilt shop, these collections go away after awhile to make room for more new collections.
Did I mention Batiks? We plan to keep these around too, but might update colors and designs here and there. Did I mention these too are made from our US cotton?!!! These batiks meet my personal high standards of clear beautiful colors (no muddiness you sometimes find), the design and color are the same on both sides, making them even easier to use in applique and paper piecing. But we’ve added our own special softness formula, so you’ll enjoy touching them too. No stiff stuff for us!
that? Did we sacrifice quality? No! Because of you, our fabric business has grown and as we’ve grown, we’ve
been able to negotiate even better pricing. Unlike some big companies, as we’ve grown and obtained better prices, we’ve passed those savings on to you. Read more about how we do it:
