    Hey, Quilting Aggi..

    Just read about the thousandsofbolts web site....now I am in serious trouble too. That is a most excellent website. I don't know whether to hunt you down and break your knees, or just get down on my knees and thank you.

    Just joking about the broken knees part. But not about the second part....THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I had a perfectly wonderful orgy on that website!

    Got my fabric today and I am very pleased. It was all Debbie Mumm and I didn't realize that. Color was different than I thought on two of the pieces, but it will work fine for what I am planning on doing with it. Packaged very neatly in a box - had mine delivered by UPS. Will order more from there again!

    I just got out the copy of my invoice...I bought 40 yards. Mea Culpa. There's no point in making excuses...I will come right out and admit it; when it comes to fabric, I am addicted. Spineless as a fishing worm.
    thank God there's no calories in fabric. Do you dream about the stuff? At least it's a legal addiction.........Mary

    nope.. didn't get dinged by customs... and don't know what happens with regards to GST.... Now perhaps the next time I order I might. I guess its the luck of the draw. I ordered 10 yards of fabric. It cost be in total $58.00 approximately. I fabric cost me $37. and shipping $21. WOW!!!!! if I purchased that here it would have cost me well well well over $100 before shipping!!!

    I am DEFINETELY putting in another order next week!! Come on Wednesday (hee hee payday)!!! I think I will start putting my order together over the weekend and add to my cart. .. then come Wednesday hit the pay button!! LOL I looooooooooooooved the quality of their fabrics...

    The other great thing about ordering from her is that when you get your pieces, she adds a little sticky note to each piece stating the name of the fabric, the colour, and the reference number. All great information should you decide you want to order the same thing again and can't remember what the name or reference number is!! Very very smart business move on this woman's business!! I will definetely become a regular customer to this site :)

    Lori, send us a photo of your stash when you receive it!!!!

    I still need to check out that connecting threads site a bit more.. I have a couple of threads in my cart so far, but I'm admiring those fabrics too! I have an idea for a class I want to teach for my Fall season and will to start in another month or two on those projects. I saw some fabrics on that site that would look great together especially since they are stacked together in their families.

    Cheers!

    I've ordered fabric from Thousands of Bolts a number of times. But Lori is right; the customs charges are significant. In the end, the prices are more or less the same as in our local shops like Fabricville (much more expensive than in the States), but the selection online is much, much better.

    The one thing I didn't like about Thousands of Bolts is the customer service. My package was misdirected and they sort of said "oh, I don't know how that happened" and "oh, well."

    I'm not a happy camper.
