    I received the newest Connecting Threads catalog and they have some great prices in there this time. www.connectingthreads.com.

    I seem to remember discussions about the Fons and Porter Design Wall. Since it's on sale in this catalog, I was thinking of ordering it. Is it worth ordering and did anyone find it useful?

    The other day there was a post about a gadget called the Satinedge Presser Foot. Someone asked if anyone had used it. I did put in an order after viewing it online and really was amazed that it does work and I'm the biggest klutz in the world.

    I use two flannel-backed plastic table cloths. They are pinned to the wall with the flannel side out. Works great and it was very inexpensive.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday, couldnt believe the prices! What awesome deals! I had to share the news with my sis, QweenBee. She called my this morning, was excited about the free shipping for orders over $50, and we decided to go in together on an order.
    For my $25, I got 11 charm packs & a spool of thread! WOW! Where else can you get deals like that! I cant wait till it comes in!

    You beat me to starting a thread on this!

    I'm dying trying to figure out how to get all the charm packs I want out of here, since they are the cheapest and get a piece of each design.

    The cover went far beyond just catching my eye. It's sitting right here by me. Gorgeous, gorgeous fabric selections and colors.

    Anyone ordering from here?

    I love Connecting Threads- have been happy with orders and once when I had a problem they fixed it quickly! Nice to do business with.

    Yes, I got the catalog yesterday and I'm making a mental list of what I need to order for myself...and some good gifts for my MIL, who also quilts.

    My favorites are the Christmas prints with the knit designs. Since I love to knit, it's like combining two of my addictions. I may get one of the table topper kits.

    Did you see the beautiful cabinets from Koala? I sure would love to get the one for $1199. Just beautiful and so much space for cutting sewing and quilting!

    One thing I'm not sure about, how many strips are in a roll on the Connecting Threads site? I've read the ad's several times and see the width of the strips but now how many are in a roll. Please PM me if you have knowledge of this. A really great sale there for sure.

    I ordered the design wall and the Fons & Porter binding tool. Love both of them. I thought about using a flannel backed tablecloth for a design wall, but the price was so good that I decided to order it. It has grommits on the top so I used those adhesive hooks to hang it. It also has a grid on it so you can line up your blocks. It works great. I'm very happy with my purchases.

    Oh sounds really good. I'm going to put in an order. I like the idea of the grid lines. Thanks for PM-ing me.
