    I have a dear little friend at my lqs & she told me she wanted to give me something. I had no ideal what it was. We walked over to her car & she opened the back & reached in & pulled out a bag & then a plastic box. Inside the bag was 5 spools of white cotton quilting thread. Inside the box was the whole collection of thread from Connecting Threads. Every color they make. I almost cried. She said she was going in a different direction & wanted me to have these. I guess she is changing brands, I'm not sure. I just know it is worth a lot of money. Most of the thread has not been used. I feel like christmas again. I do love my dear Ms Sally. She is a special soul.

    What a nice friend! I can see most of those spools still have the celophane on them. Have fun with all that thread! Just make sure to check your bobbin area with every bobbin change to brush out the lint. I have found CT thread to be a bit on the linty side but other then that it is just fine.
