    My order of thread from Connecting threads

    I am real happy with my valentine gift I ordered from them. Lots of thread and misc. the needs. It was nice to receive it today because I had a 24 hr flu the last couple days. Happy Day to all you quilters!

    I'm with you. My order arrived yesterday. I couldn't resist $1.12 a spool. Spent today arranging and petting them. Have fun with yours.

    *I love their thread. I usually get the natural when it comes on sale and then I get a dozen spools. I have a Sidewinder and when I start running low on bobbins (25 of them give or take a few), I just sit and run a bunch of bobbins and I don't even use up a whole spool. I do that maybe twice a year. But I always use the natural when I sew my quilts together. I just may be doing that today. I finished up two quilts last night and I just may take today off and put fabric away, clean off my table and sidewind some bobbins. Sounds like a nice afternoon. Then I have to finish tying down a quilt. Busy hands are happy hands!!!!!!! Edie

    I have a box to unpack, also. It came yesterday. I bought thread and some Mirage Blenders. I love them.
    Happy Quilting.

    I usually order their new colors when on sale so I'm pretty well stocked during their latest sale but they did have fabrics on sale or clearance the last couple of weeks so went to town on them. Got my last order on Friday and finally got them measured, folded onto boards and put away. I like some of their blender collections so I usually order all the colors they have. Just completed "Lotta Dots" on this last order. Got a couple batiks that were on sale too. Beautiful and nice feel to the fabrics. Have no complaints on their products, just their cutters as they get a bit skimpy at times. I'm lucky to get the exact amount on what I order for each fabric which means once you fold it up straight, you've lost a couple inches off each side. Not going to call them up over an inch or two, only if it gets to 6 inches or more off that they hear from me. Anyway, love their prices and products.

    Lucky you getting a 24 hour flu. I caught the 5 week flu. Have fun with your threads.

    I usually get the neutral threads on their cones. They last forever that way! Their thread case is wonderful if you need something to keep all those smaller spools in.

    I have lots of thread from them. I usually buy several of their collections at one time.

    I like the CT Pro 70wt. It's thin and strong.

    I also could not resist the price. Got a box full too. Love the colors that were available and stocked up on white to get to the free shipping point.

    Mine came last week. I got every color (almost) that was on sale. I love their thread and I think I am stocked up for awhile.

    I really like their thread. I've used it for several years. It does produce a lot of lint though so you want to clean your machine more often

    I put in an order after Christmas, and have finished the quilt most of the fabric was ordered for. I have been resisting looking at the emails I get from them, so tempting! My sewing room has been compressed into the computer room. It's getting painted and new flooring. I'll probably have lots of room after I re-load the sewing room. Got rid of a lot assorted stuff. Stuff I've had for years for crafts, stuff I didn't know I had. Heck of a way to clear a room!!

    They have the best thread and it is cheap too! And when it is on sale it is almost like they are giving it away I can't believe how large their spools are.
