    I bought $90.00 of fat quarters there in June. Fantastic fabric.

    Just put in an order on the Belles Fleurs clearance fabric so I can make a wedding gift for my nephew for next July. Less than $60.00 will make the full top, borders and binding! I like deals like that!

    I ordered the jelly rolls. Thought it was really pretty.
    Actually got 3 of them. 1 for me and 2 as gifts.

    LOL Well it is an awesome site!

    I ordered way too much from there about a week ago.

    takes a deep breath and says......$200.00

    but its worth it, every penny. Good quality fabric and the patterns are also a great product too as are the quilt kits. I have yet to buy any of the books but I am going to get around to doing that too.

    I ordered the Jacobean Cream Sampler and am making the Lazy
    Girl's Designs Miranda Day Bag. I hope to have it finished by the weekend. Connectingthreads has some great stuff "quality plus price"
    a combination hard to find these days.

    I do have to say one good thing about Connecting Threads. They will contact you immediately if there is a problem. For some reason, I put in the wrong expiration date on my card. Got an e-mail telling me I had to call them at their 800#. Well, the number wont' work from either my house or my cell phone, so I e-mailed them back asking for a direct number. Within 5 minutes I got the response with the number, called them and everything is now fine. :)

    Do they at least deduct the amt. free shipping to contingent states would be? You'd think they'd make exceptions for military families!

    Maybe that is something that could be mentioned to them as a way to bring more business for their company. Offering discounts on shipping to Military families.

    Henry, we as military families have done this with numerous BIG companies, as well as smaller ones. They won't change their minds. It's their loss, they could be reaping the revenue that we are spending elsewhere at times.
    But, I will always check the shipping charges. If it's an enormous amount, such as one company had, I will e-mail them and let them know my dislike. Usually, they will change their minds.

    Really you can get them to change their shipping rates? I really wanted to place an order for the Aurifil threads on clearance over in Canada, but they want $15 to ship an under $30 order, and at that rate I can buy the stuff reg. price at a site that ships all orderes (to the US and Canada for $2). Should I ask if they can beat the rate?

    I know it's a little off subject but it's would be good to know. :D

    With the Canadian dollar at par with the U.S. I don't mind the shipping charges. Of course I lose 3" off every yard I buy. Our metres are 3" longer than a yard. But when I saw the quality and the service that Connecting Threads offer I was sold!

    Sometimes they will come down on their rates. I have had companies NOT know that shipping to Guam is the same as shipping anywhere in the US. We use US Postal Service, so why should I be charged more, right?
    Sometimes if I have a HUGE order and they don't offer free shipping, I'll call them and let them know that I have ordered from them before. I'll ask them that since I am a return/repeat customer, can I please have the free shipping that is offered to others. Sometimes I get it, sometimes I don't. Now, if I am ordering something for $10 and they want $7 for shipping and that's what they charge EVERYONE, then I refuse to shop with them.

    My trouble was the shipping charges where so much it was cheaper to pay full price elsewhere! :( I sent them an email we'll see what they say. After all if they choose to do nothing I doubt it's a place I want to order from anyway.

    I have purchased from them several times. I have also bought a lot of their Essential thread. A great value.
