2010 SCHMETZ Portfolio Designer - Connie Crawford

Connie's Favorite Needle - Quick Threading

Connie is a licensed designer for Butterick Patterns and is owner of Fashion Patterns by Coni.  She was the 2009 selection for the American Sewing Guild Sewing Hall of Fame.  She is a nationally recognized lecturer, fashion specialist, educator and author of sewing and pattern textbooks.  Drawing on her 35 years of experience in apparel manufacturing and 23 years teaching fashion design classes in patternmaking, sewing and draping at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, Connie created her own pattern line with true-to-body fit from sizes X-Small to 6X. 

Connie's textbooks and DVD's help you customize your sewing.

Connie is particularly fond of the SCHMETZ Quick Threading needle because it is easier to thread.  The Quick Threading Needle is a Universal needle with a small slip-in threading slot in the eye. It has a slightly rounded point for trouble-free sewing on numerous types of fabrics.
