    I have bought from them, no problem. The kits can be very inexpensive when on sale, like $4 or $5 per yard. I have been known to buy a kit just because I like the fabric even if I don't like the fabric if it is on sale.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I have ordered many yards of fabric and have always been pleased. The one kit that I ordered came with plenty of material and was very easy to follow the directions. They also have specials for batting. Many buy their thread and are satisfied but I am finding my Bernina is a little picky about it. So to answer your question....good fabric and wonderful service. Don't you just love their new line of fabrics? Drool...drool!!!

    I've done two of their kits and loved them. Plenty, plenty of fabric.

    I love love love CT fabrics. Sometimes I just sit in my fabric room and
    run my hand over some of their fabric just to get "need" for fabric cured
    for a very short time.

    Their fabric is great and the prices are wonderful. I love love their thread, I have a Bernina, and have no problems using it, but I do clean the bobbin area and under the stitch plate every time I fill my bobbin. Their service is fantastic,too!

    Has anyone purchased flannel from Connecting Threads? I need some for the backing of a quilt.

    just got my new catalog - man, it is hard to resist! I think I'll order and have it sent to my sister. then I can tell my husband that my sister gave me this fabric! And yes, you get plenty of fabric in a kit. I got the table runner kit with the patriotic fabric. Made up the one the pattern is for, cut & pieced the backing for it, AND made another large runner with the leftovers in the D9P pattern.

    I've been very pleased with the kits I've ordered from CT. Will order again when I see one I like.

    I made a baby quilt from CT print flannel. It's thick and soft and doesn't shrink much at all. The quilt has been washed many times and the colors are still bright.
    Got fabric?

    I have ordered as well from them several times and been pleased. The two kits were generous and the fabrics purchased by the yard were fine. I only had one fabric that I did not care for the quality - but I used it anyways and the quilt came out fine. I just got the newest catalog and absolutely LOVE the quilt on the cover (the snowmen) - just trying to rationalize another project - lol!

    I order often from Connecting Threads. I love their thread, fabric and kits. I have never been disappointed in anything I've received from them. Just do it! You'll love it.

    I have recently used them for thread and fabric. Very fast delivery and I love everything I have gotten so far. I would not hesitate to order from them. Great sales too. I use their thread in my new long arm with great luck.

    I have not had any problems with any purchases I have made. One kit I did order was backordered--it arrived in a reasonable time.

    Only ordered one kit (great sale price) because I liked the fabric but I've ordered fabric and thread from them several times and have always been pleased. If anyone who works there is on this board she must be very happy with the always positive comments about her workplace. I'd recommend you go for it.

    I have bought fabric from them several times. I was disappointed in the quality of my one order but the others were fine.
