    Almost half my stash is from connecting threads, love them. Never had a problem with quality or service.

    you get what you pay for. i have purchased from there, i found the prints colourless and dull and the fabric is thin, the service is very good.

    I have only purchased Mirage - the blender and was satisfied with it. Oh, and a few batiks. One seemed a little stretchy, but it hasn't caused any difficulty in working with it. The color is great.

    ask them for a samples of the colors, they'll do that I'm sure.

    I bought a bunch of the solid FQ packs when they were on sale a few months ago. I haven't used them but they seemed find to me. I don't anticipate any problems.

    However, just a note. The reason they were on clearance and couldn't be back-ordered (some combos were out of stock) was because they were phasing out a few of the colors. Since the packs had appeared in the catalog already, they wouldn't be able to reproduce them exactly with the same colors.

    So if you buy any of the clearance solids, don't expect to be able to reorder the same EXACT color in the future.

    I have a medium sized tote full of them that I got about 2 weeks ago. I love them! I haven't used them but I have gone through all of them and am very happy with the colors and quality! I am using them for the QFL star quilt.
