    Just wanted to let you know about a recent order had from this place:

    http://www.connectingthreads.com/quilting+fabric.html

    Prompt service... I am in Canada... and I didn't get hit with customs!

    I was very happy with the quality of the fabric, though the colours were off a little from the website.

    I bought a bunch of fat quarters from their clearance page. Some were just 89cents each! Their regular price is 5.96 a yard so I though that was a good price. I got 55 fat quarters and with shipping and handling GST and customs it was 80.00 CAD.

    I also like how they group their fabrics in collections so you can buy knowing that the fabrics are coordinated.

    I ordered thread from them a while back and was quite happy with it. Were the shipping charges reasonable?

    I have ordered from them several times and have always been so happy with my order. Their fabric prices are great and their kits are wonderful.

    Ruth, I was curious about the postage because she's in Canada as am I, and sometimes we get charged ridiculous amounts in postage when ordering from the US. I was hoping that wasn't the case here as they do have some really lovely fabrics etc.

    Ruth is right... Connecting Threads charges what the postoffice charges them. They don't do a money grab like some companies do!

    Of course I had to check out the site. Ended up getting fabric, a tote bag pattern and some thread. Free shipping works for me!

    I've gotten fabric from Connecting Threads and loved it but my favorite is their thread! Just love it, recommend it all the time, the price is great, can't be beat and I love that there is hardly any fuzz clogging my machine and the 'threads have a wonderful sheen. I just wish I could buy all their thread collections at once but not able to do that. I like the idea of ordering with a friend to get the free shipping...duh, hadn't thought of that!

    :lol: :lol: I have ordered everything from fabric to needles, etc. from Connecting Threads and have always been well satisfied. I get Nancys Notions, Clotilde, Connecting Threads, and Keepsake catalogs on a regular basis and have only 1 item that I was not happy with. It's a good way to shop and some of them sell the same items. If you double check the prices and items between catalogs sometimes you can save quite a bit of money, especially when you add in the shipping and handling charges. I do love the coordinated fabrics that Connecting Threads have put together plus the patterns that utilize these fabrics in kits. Makes life easier since color/print coordination is not exactly my forte.

    I love poking around Connecting Threads website. You can look a the quilts in their books and decide if you would like it before you buy, much like at the store. Recently bought a set of the variegated threads. Also a small kit, although I generally buy my fabric at quilt shops. I do purchase fabric from other websites if it's the brands I know and like.

    I order from Connecting Threads quite a bit. They ship very promptly and if your order is over 50.00 you get free shipping. I always wait untill I can afford at least a fifty dollar tab. I live in Canada but they don't have a problem shipping to an American address, my daughter.
    I would say this is a very good place to do business and I like their thread too.

    Love your FG's from Connecting Threads! I love their catalog, and can't find mine right now...it's buried in my 'stash' of everything else! Another good catalog is from Keepsake Quilting...
