    Cool Complete Customer satisfaction thanks to 1,000 Bolts

    Just got my 10+ yards of fabric in the mail that I ordered late Friday night from 1,000 bolts, and as always, they never disappoint. Consistently great fabric, good prices and wonderful service. Now I'm about to bring the package up to the sewing room and introduce my new fabric to the rest of my stash and hope there will be no scrabbling between them. Pinks and Oranges are divas and in general, don't get along very well side by side but the rest are team players.

    It is always exciting getting new fabric. But I find you are correct, Pinks and Oranges are divas.

    Well I got my big package last week , fabulous service. ... Loved one of the fabrics so much I went back on ( during the shipping special) and bought the rest they had ... It arrived today ! Color me REALLY happy. I will play with mine a bit more ....arranging and contiplating the projects, before it finds its way to a shelf.
    Is there anything better than "fresh" off the bolt fabric?!!!

    I am so glad to hear everyone rave about thousands of bolts! The owner belongs to our qult guild and I tell her at our meetings how much everyone on here likes them. She is a wonderful person and she truly appreciates all the wonderful comments you all give her!

    I haven't ordered fabric by mail yet. I am a toucher and want to know just what that fabric feels like. I will check them out, though.

    BTW -- everytime I tried quick reply and hit submit, I received a message asking if I was sure I wanted to leave the page. It is like the submit button is linked to the wrong action.

    I had the same problem. I think the board is "haunted" today by all the weird weather!

    I will check it out, too, but I like to feel the fabric & look at the colors in person. Choosing colors is such a personal experience, how can you trust what you see on a computer monitor?

    From personal experience, I have found what I like in a LQS and have written down the info. Later, have gone into 1,000 bolts and found the fabric for 1/2 off and more than the LQS. Same product, same quality. It's a wonderful option if you're looking to generally add to your stash.

    I ordered from them a few years ago, a great fabric by Avlyn, for my staff's uniform tops (my cafe in Vanuatu) and the salesgirl on line was SO helpful!! I called on the computer (skype) from Vanuatu, and she got the fabric still on the large rolls from the mfg and send it to a freight forwarder that was sending a container to us. I got something like 120 yards, and she discounted it to about $3.00/yard!! When I tried last year, she wasn't there anymore, and the person I talked to wasn't nearly as helpful, and didn't seem to want to go that extra mile to fill a large order. The first time, she sent me snippets of fabrics she could get that quantity in after I told her which ones I liked that they had on-line. I ended up getting it from Joann's-really nice Susan Winget mexican print, and because I wanted so much, they got it in from the warehouse, and I was able to use my 50% coupon on the lot!! They considered it 1 cut of fabric. I was a very happy camper!! I usually like to see, smell, feel, fondle, etc my fabric, so I try not to buy on-line now that I am back in the States.

    I loved their prices and especially the fast delivery. Ordered before noon one day and the next day after noon it was on my front step. I only live one state over but they really get their orders out fast.

    I thought the same thing. Maybe if it is an issue with the site, it can be fixed ;O)

    lol, you're funny ;-) Definitely a good company. You're right in that they don't disappoint. If I get something I don't like it's probably because I was up late at night ordering when I shouldn't, then there is a little squabble among the residing fabrics here, but they get over it pretty quickly ;-)

    I absolutely LOVE Thousands of Bolts. I wouldn't buy anywhere else online. I tried Connecting Threads, but there are few, if any, brand names there and TofB has loads of them which means better fabric. It's not the brand new designs, but I don't care. If I like it, I want it and their selection is incredible. To me, CT fabric is thin and nowhere near the quality of TofB, plus TofB pricing is amazing for what you get.

    I am so glad to hear that. I have thought of ordering from them but now I will feel more comfortable doing so esp. with hearing from others today and other times about their fabric being quality.

    I keep getting that message too when I want to click my browser back.

    It sounds like a great place and I am proud to say that I didn't visit the website. I have too many divas already!!

    I have a question -- is there a trick to finding fabric there? I find I'm overwhelmed by all the fabric, even when I use their color selection. They seem to have wonderful fabric but can't seem to sit and scroll through tons of pages.

    I've been ordering from Thousands of Bolts for over 5 years now, mainly because they consistently have the best prices around for quality quilting cottons, and they ship so fast. They are the best on the web!

    I love Thousands of Bolts!!! I enjoy just going there and window shopping when I'm feeling down. I think I've purchased from them only one time so far but always check there first for fabric for a new project.
