{ Pearadise by Jenni Calo }

We’re topping off the Connecting Threads mini-series with a giveaway! Connecting Threads has three brand-new collections out: Pearadise, Tulane, and Sweetgrass Prairie. They also have 33 new colors of thread and 10 new Thread Sets. Just leave a comment on this post letting us know your favorite fabric collection of the three, AND your favorite thread set. I’ll randomly select one winner for each fabric collection, and a fourth winner will get a thread set! Comments will close and winners will be drawn this Tuesday, Feb. 21, around 6am Central U.S. time. Sorry, friends in far-flung places, this giveaway is only open to residents of the U.S. or Canada.

    Tulane (which I ordered some of yesterday) and celebrations

  2. Kathy says:

    Pearadise fabric is sew springy!
    Celebration thread would be great for everyday.

  3. Cheryl - MA says:

    How yummy is that Pearadise…if I win that I’ll surely have me some fun making a quilt for my granddaughter, who sadly has not received a quilt from me yet, but that fabric line in a quilt would surely make up for it, would bring lots and lots of smiles to her sweet little face. The Confections thread set sure looks good enough to eat so I would have to say that is my favorite new collection. Thanks for having such a great give-away and the chance to win some awesome fabric.

  4. Kimberly Woods says:

    I like the pattern combination on the Pearadise collection. It’s fresh and springlike. I love the color combination of the threads. They all look so yummy. I would be most likely to use the Essentially Neutral threads though.

  5. Elaine Morgan says:

    I love all three sets – but given the choice I think I’d like to “stretch” myself and go for Tulane! Very rich! Oh yes, all of the thread sets are wonderful!

  6. Emily says:

    I think Tulane is very rich in color and so striking! Very sophisticated. I love using their thread too :)

  7. Karen says:

    I like all three fabric collections, but I’m really drawn to the Tulane collection. For the thread collection, I really like the Farmers Market set.

  8. Mika says:

    I think the Pearadise is my favorite of the fabrics, although the calicos are a close second. My favorite thread set is Celebration!

  9. AmandaL says:

    I’m usually more of a contemporary print kind of girl, but this time I’m going with Sweetgrass Prairie–there are lots of good blender fabrics to mix and match with my more modern style fabrics in this collection, I think. As for threads, I quite like the essential black and white set, and the salt and pepper set. hard to find really nice grays!

  10. elizabeth says:

    Ooooo! I would have to say Tulane is my favorite fabric of the three and Beach house thread set has such beautiful colors :)
    Thanks :)

  11. Brenda Kroez says:

    I really like the Pearadise fabric collection and the Confections thread set. Thanks!

  12. Lori says:

    I really like the Pearadise collection and the rainbow thread set.

  13. Barb B says:

    I love the beach house thread set!! I have a quilt on hold that are all beach glass colours – can I say perfect fit? And I think Pearadise is my pick for the fabric collections – though Sweetgrass Prairie is calling my name too.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    The essential bright thread set looks great. And Tulane is beautiful! Thanks for the chance.

    The Pearadise is divine! Love it. The Confections thread set is perfection as well!

    I’ve bought thread from Connecting Threads before and just love them! Since I need some color and variety in my threads, I’d choose the Confections or Essential Country thread sets!

  29. Barb N says:

    Pearadise is my favorite fabric line of these three – fun, fun!

  30. Shirley says:

    I love the Pearadise! The colors look so vivid even on my screen, I am sure they are even more fabulous in person. Makes me want to sew up a garden apron or two, because you can never have to many aprons when working in the garden on a spring day, one is bound to get dirty :)

  31. Anne says:

    I was just visiting with Connecting Thread this past week and really like the new Pearadise fabric group. That would be my pick for the giveaway. I love the feel of their fabrics. And for threads I would have to say the Confections collection. Love those yummy colors.

  32. Patty says:

    My favorite fabric collection is Pearadise (cute play on words) and my favorite thread is the Confections collection.

  33. Holly says:

    All of these are great, but the Pearadise set looks like so much fun to use.

  34. Nurseli says:

    I like the Tulane fabric and the salt and pepper thread set. I love connecting threads! The batting is usually well priced.

  40. Veronica says:

    I love the Tulane collection. The colors and patterns definitely do remind me of New Orleans! And the Rainbow or Celebration thread sets are very cheery!

  41. Donna Sheffer says:

    I especially like the Pearadise collection. I am into making dresses for my granddaughters now and these fabrics look so cute! Celebration would be my pick from the thread collections. Thanks so much.

  42. Diane C says:

    I like all of them but the one I like the most is Sweetgrass Prairie. The thread set I like the most is Homestead with Confections a very close second.
