    Yes, they do have some great prices, and I love their fabrics.

    So sad that they moved out of Vancouver, WA where I lived. They had a nice retail store and great warehouse sales. They still have a call center here.

    Bamamama, I own a Tin Lizzie and I have used Connecting Thread on her....it is a bit linty, but works fine for me...If you are going from using poly to cotton you may have adjust your bobbin...I just put a practice piece on last night to set the tensions cause last time I quilted I was using varigated poly so I knew I would have to adjust my tension and I wanted to practice some free hand. I have used connecting thread from the start and never had any problems..I see they now sell Polyester thread and might try theirs. Just remember Lizzie will take any kind of brand well so far she works for me. I usually order from Tristan here in Canada also great prices.

    Deema, have you tried ordering your batting from Tristan
    http://www.tristan.bc.ca/cart/home.php, it's a Canadian base store, they sell batting and I have bought from them, it quilts like a dream. It is "Batting" Legacy Natural Blend 80/20 with scrim. I've also bought their cotton and Polyester Aurifil thread. I usually buy by the bolt and it is very comparable to the Warm&Natural.....

    CT's new thread is poly, thin and strong, and made for long armers. I use it for my bobbin thread for piecing usually with the CT cotton thread on top.

    What benefit is there to using the poly in the bobbin versus cotton? thanks
