    I wanted to place an order with Connecting Threads but cancelled it when the postage was as much as the order. To the person saying they haven't bought anything since the fabric is no longer American produced; I have this comment. Some time ago I mentioned to my hubby that the local quilt shop wants us to think their fabric is superior because it is made in America and so he made it a point to check the bolts and all of it is made overseas. So, now when I go there I don't expect any of it to be American produced.

    I have a lot of their thread and I like it a lot. It is linty; in my experience all 100% cotton thread is linty, not sure if their's is any more than others. Like their batiks, I can't tell them from LQS batiks. I have quite a bit of their "mirage" fabric which I like the looks of but I've decided it is too heavy for anything but small pieces. Used for backing or borders it makes the quilt heavy. I have a quite a few of their solids as well, which are fine.
    A lot of their fabric designs don't do much for me, so I don't purchase many of the prints.
    Never had a problem with customer service, but then I don't think I've ever had a problem that required customer service.

    I love their fabric! I think it is every bit as good as Quilt store fabric. I just made a quilt from a kit I bought from them about 2 yrs ago called Kyoto blues and I couldn't stop touching the fabric because it felt so soft and luxurious. I also used some of their Batiks in a quilt and they were thinner than most batiks but the colors were still glorious and they sewed up well. Also their customer service is great!

    I have used their thread and fabrics. Loved both and also purchased books from them too.
    Have friends who use their fabrics all the time and are satisfied customers.

    I have ordered from them several times and have always been satisfied with their products. Their fabrics are great; never had a bad piece and their threads are great too.l

    I don't have a LQS so I do occassionaly order from them. I have experienced a couple of problems with my order and they were always quick to solve the problem for me. I give them an A for customer service! Will most definitely continue to shop there when they have the fabrics or thread that I need. :-)

    I've purchased fabric and thread from them and have never been disappointed. I just finished a queen quilt made with their Urban Odyssey line and it turned out very nicely. I used their thread to quilt it with no problems at all. They are a class act and I would guess that the "no middleman" is a reason why they can keep their prices down. They are definitely one of my favorites and I highly recommend them.
