2024 New Years Goals from the C&T Team

2024 New Years Goals from the C&T Team

Posted by C&T Staff on Dec 29th 2023

2024 is right around the corner and it's THE year for positive change! The incredible minds at C&T are gearing up with both personal and creative goals. 

Madison, Editor

"I started my first bed-size quilt in 2023 (12/42 blocks are complete!). I'd love to finish it in 2024!"

Betsy F., Marketing Coordinator

"It's not a secret that Jen Kingwell is my all-time-favorite quilter. I'm in the stage of my life where I spend a lot of time waiting on my middle schooler to get out of guitar lessons or bowling club, so I'm always looking for a portable hand-sewing project. With Quilt Recipes coming out in January, I think that's the perfect excuse to start her Winky Stars pattern."

Sarah, Distributor & Special Sales Manager

"I have several goals. One is to finally learn how to play pickle ball. I feel like everyone around me is playing. Another is to learn how to knit or crochet and plan at least one great trip with my family and one with my girlfriends. In addition I plan to improve both my gardening skills (and I already have a pretty awesome garden but it can always look better) and to master some new cooking skills."

Betsy L., Editor

"Get organized! Half of my "stuff" is in moving boxes and 2024 is the year to empty those out and keep, donate or toss."

Devyn, Marketing Coordinator

"As someone who's dabbled in various crafts, believe it or not, quilting remains uncharted territory for me. But I've set my sights on creating my first quilt in 2024, and being right here at C&T Publishing feels like the ultimate serendipity for my quilting debut! I recently ordered Pat Sloan's Teach Me to Make My First Quilt and I'm really excited to start. The detailed diagrams and tips make quilting feel approachable as a first-timer."

Allison Eiseman, Data Entry Coordinator & Sales Assistant

"I love to decorate sugar cookies! In 2024 I'd like to get more comfortable with new decorating techniques. I recently started painting on cookies with food coloring, and it's so much fun and very relaxing so I hope to do more of that in the New Year!"

Valerie, Marketing & PR Manager

"Spend time with more intention! I recently started to rely on journals to write down my intentions, such as The Big Book of Little Sparks for creative goals and a bullet journal for tracking my personal growth and wellbeing. I find it hard to keep one big goal for the year, so I opt for smaller monthly or weekly goals (and rewards!) for myself. Oh! And keep my newly planted garden alive. I am not blessed with a green thumb (yet) but hope to get there someday!"


Embark on a thrilling journey through 2024, filled with exciting crafts and projects! Whatever your goals or resolutions may be, we're here to accompany you every step of the way. We wish you a wonderful 2024!
