    I love the salt and pepper thread set. The fabrics are all gorgeous, but I think Tulane is my gave! Thanks for the opportunity!

  7. Holly says:

    My favorite fabric collection is Tulane, and I like the Essential Neutrals thread set. Pretty fabrics!

  8. sarakenobi says:

    I love the pearadise collection and the celebration thread set! thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Annik says:

    Pearadise is really sweet. All of the thread sets are gorgeous, but I think I like Confections the best.

  10. Lauren says:

    Pearadise is so cute – I love the fruit basket prints with the wonky lines! I do really like the Sweetgrass Prairie too. I’m trying to finish a quilt that my grandmother started many decades ago and I think some of the traditional prints in there would blend very well. I like the Farmer’s Market thread set best. Beautiful colors.

  11. Rae says:

    While I’m a little obsessed with pears, Tulane has my heart at the moment. I’ve been obsessed with those bright colors lately.

    And I like the Salt and Pepper thread set… greys are so useful.

    I’m glad to see Connecting Threads on here. Some of my local club ladies are obsessed with it.

  12. Melissa says:

    My inner country-girl is swooning over the sweet grass fabric, and my wilder side is loving the Celebration thread set!

  13. Kristie says:

    I love Tulane. The thread sets are too hard to choose from. Any would be fantastic. The Rainbow Set, the Woodland Set, the Farmer’s Market set, etc. Thanks! kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  14. Julia C K says:

    Pearadise and rainbow

  15. laurel says:

    oooh – that tulane would POP in my neutral living room!! as for the thread, that was harder… i’d have to say the essential neutral. although the farmers market would be great. or the rainbow.

  16. Karen says:

    Pearadise, Salt and Pepper -
    hard choices :)

  17. Sarah says:

    I love the pears. And who doesn’t need a rainbow?

  18. Kathy Seman says:

    Like pearadise, love tulane

  19. I love the beach house thread set! But I’m kind of torn on the fabric. Tulane is so cool looking, but I think I’m going to have to say pearadise because of those awesome fruit basket basics.

  20. Marisa says:

    Tulane for its inspired take on classic patterns, and Woodland for its pretty and ever useful earth tones.

  21. Amy says:

    Tulane is my fave and the essential bright thread, such a pretty rainbow of colors!

  22. I’m going with Pearadise – so fun! Also love the Essential Gardens thread set.

  23. Lee Ann L. says:

    Pearadise is my favorite out of the three. And, I think I’d go with Essential Black & White thread set. Thank you for a chance to win. :-)

  24. Jill Thompson says:

    Sweetgrass Prairie and Confections (I’m expecting a little girl and those threads look just perfect!)

    Also-thanks, I wasn’t aware of Connecting Threads and am so happy to add it to my list of fabric sources!

  25. Bobbi says:

    Pearadise and Woodlands. Such great fabric collections!!!

  26. christina says:

    Sweetgrass Prairie & the Homestead thread set — I have a little 5 year old pioneer wannabe that would eat these up.

  27. Deanna says:

    I like the Tulane line and rainbow thread set.

  28. Debbie B Sam says:

    Pearadise is it :) And my favorite thread set is the rainbow thread set! Thanks for the chance and for highlighting a wonderful company!!!

  29. Morgan says:

    Pearadise and Celebration? Farmers Market? Hard to choose. Thanks!

  30. Sharon says:

    Sweetgrass Prairie is my favorite fabric collection and the Woodland Thread Set is my favorite threadset. Thank you for a chance to win!!

  31. Cecillia says:

    I love that pearadise! And the beach house thread set! :)

  32. Amanda says:

    I’m loving the Sweetgrass Prairie and the muted tones of the Homestead thread set. :)

  33. Becky Greene says:

    Hard choice, but I will go with… Tulane and Essential Neutral thread set. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  34. Pearadise and Celebration!

  35. Rebecca says:

    I’d pick the Pearadise fabric line and the Fauna thread set. THANKS for the chance, I LOVE Connecting Threads!

  36. Tina says:

    The Sweetgrass Prairie reminds me of the old-time feed sacks that ladies used to make dresses from! Although Sweetgrass Prairie takes me back to my days of everything Laura Ingals Wilder, I have to say that right now my favorite fabric of the three is the rich colors of Tulane and the Beach House thread.

  37. Apricot says:

    Pearadise and Woodland, though probably not together!

  38. Nina Tovish says:

    Essential Country Thread Set looks awesome. And I’m partial to the Sweetgrass Prairie collection.

  39. Jan says:

    It has to be Pearadise and Salt & Pepper. Wonderful giveaway…thank you!

  40. Andrea says:

    Love the Tulane for the fabrics, and although the colors on the threads are great(especially the Beach House Collection!), I think the Salt and Pepper would probably be a bit more practical for what I sew with every day.

  41. Kate Erbach says:

    Tulane and Celebration! Love the kapow! color in Tulane and the large graphics in the designs. Celebration threads cover most of the colors in this collection so would go perfectly. And of course, ANYTHING from Connecting Threads is excellent so how can one go wrong?

  42. Rhonda says:

    Really like the Pearadise; as for threads, either the Salt & Pepper or the Fresh Essentials set. Thanks for chance to win.

  43. Adele says:

    Well, since I live in the New Orleans metro area, I guess it’s a good thing that Tulane is my favorite collection. Actually, even if I didn’t live here it would be my favorite. I’m a nuetral thread kind of gal so the Basics Neutrals would have to be it. I’ve been ordering from Connecting Threads for years and have never been disappointed. Great sales too!

  44. Linda R. says:

    I love “Pearadise” & the Celebration thread set. Thanks for a chance to win.

  45. C Rabuck says:

    I love the Pop Pears -Curaco, Flower Fields in Periwinkle and Palm Court in Teal. The Confections Threads set is nice too. It would go with almost anything! Thanks! – Carol

  46. Penny G says:

    I love Tulane and would easily use all of the essential neutral thread set.

  47. Jennie P. says:

    My favorite is Tulane. I love the colors and patterns. My favorite thread set is the Essential bright thread set :)

  48. Pearadise and Confections… fun!

  49. Alisa says:

    Tulane fabric collection and the Celebration Thread set. I love their thread (especially the price!)

  50. Kathy Henderson says:

    I love your site. So much fun each time!
    My favorites are Sweetgrass Prairie and Essential Neutrals thread set.
