    Has anyone purchased any of their kits and/or made something using their material? I am thinking about buying one of their kits and was wondering what others thought about their material. Lisa

    I purchase from them and have found their fabric and thread to be high quality. They also ship very fast and have a great customer service.

    I've gotten other items from CT but never material. There was a discussion on here about this very thing and I think the opinions were divided equally that some liked their fabric and some didn't. I've looked at their charm packs and have been tempted to order some to see but I'm not sure what quality they would be for $3.00. I think I'll hold off for a bit :)

    I have used many of their fabrics and been totally satisfied. Just recently bought the canning line and love it.

    I have used their fabrics and thread and love it. I have also bought a kit from them. It is not pre-cut just gives you the yardage and pattern. I have not opened mine yet, but the fabric is high quality. When I finally find some time I will put the quilt together. I would recommend them.

    It sounds like I'm in the minority, but I think their fabric is extremely poor quality. I still use it (because it's so cheap) for quick projects that won't be used much, or for things that I don't actually care about very much. If, however, I am putting a lot of time or energy into a project, I pay more elsewhere for better quality fabric. I can see through their fabric which I find to be very thin. It's about the quality I would expect for fabric given that it costs less than $5 per yard. I have based my opinion, by the way, on dozens of fabrics that I have purchased from them either as yardage or as part of kits. They have several kits I would like to order, but I just am not willing to put that much time into a project with such poor quality fabric.

    I have also had trouble with their customer service. Specifically, several occasions on which they failed to resolve technical issues which were keeping me from being able to order on their website. They failed to respond to me at all, or in a timely manner, and were unhelpful and unsympathetic to my inability to order.

    I have ordered both yardage and kits from CT. I have found the fabric is suitable for heavy use items such as tote bags and quilts. The sale prices are actually very good.

    Everyone seems to like their service, such as replacing wrong colors or spots on the fabric, etc.

    I think you ought to do a search here for more threads having to do with Connecting Threads. I have enjoyed the fabric and kits very much.

    I purchased and made a kit from them, and was extremely pleased. The fabric seemed to be good quality - and there was an enormous amount of it. The kit was not pre-cut, just had the yardage, and I had up to a half-yard left over of just one of the fabrics! There was certainly no skimping on the fabric.

    I have ordered fabric as well as kits form CT, and have not found anything less than the best from them.

    I can't comment on their fabric as I have never ordered any. But I just received my first order from there today for batting that was on sale. Couldn't believe it came so fast. Will have to try their fabric some time soon.

    I have bought a number of their quilt kits. The fabric is wonderful and they always give you extra. When I made their Lonestar quilt there was enough left to put a big lonestar on the back. They ship quickly. I just can't say enough good about them. I have only had one problem with them. They shipped the wrong fabric. ( eight yards of it.) I contacted them by Email and they called the next day. They sent out the correct fabric that day and told me I could keep the wrong fabric as their way of saying sorry for the inconvenience. That was eight yards of free fabric. I was in heaven.

    I have made numerous projects with their fabric, including 2 kits, and have really like them. I also use many of their threads.

    I received an order yesterday only to find out it was supposed to go to Alaska. I called them and they told me to keep it, but they were sending a duplicate order to the correct place. In addition, because my order may have been compromised, they are sending another package with my order. Today, my order arrived. Betcha a duplicate comes in a couple days.

    I have bought fabric, kits & thread from them. Always was pleased. They are a nice place to deal with too. Also free shipping after $50.00.

    Connecting Threads says they will take back anything you are not satisfied with, no questions.
