    I am going to try Hobbs poly-down batting from Connecting Threads. I have never ordered from there. Any suggestions on other "good stuff" I could get from them?

    i buy most of my threads from them- battings when on sale- they have a nice selection of (gadgets/notions)
    the fabrics (especially the 1930's lines are quite nice.
    i always order enough to qualify for free shipping :)

    Check their clearance fabric section for good prices on fabric for backings. I also like their samplers. You can't beat the prices for strips, charms and 10-inch squares. I find the charm packs a good way to sample the fabrics. Then I can use them in scrap quilts.

    And of course the thread.

    I LOVE the Pro line of poly bobbin/quilting thread that I just got - it's similar to Bottom Line, but it's completely matte and it's drapey-er. I think it's going to be as perfect for hand applique and machine quilting as Bottom Line.

    I already liked their Essentials cotton thread and their fabrics. You pretty much can't go wrong with CT. :)

    I love their fabrics and thread. Just a hint......I got an Email and if you use the coupon TRYITQNN you get free shipping on fabric, threads and such. It's not good for batting though.

    A great company all around, I have ordered from them for years. They have the best sales. Free shipping if you order enought, Not sure but I think I may have paid shipping once or twice. :thumbup:

    Connecting Threads is my favorite on line store, and I buy from several. I've ordered from there many times and have never been disappointed. If the order isn't right, call customer service, and they'll make it right. They're wonderful! I especially like their clearance fabrics. It's high quality fabric for great prices, and they never "short" you on the fabric. You can't go wrong in any department.

    I LOVE connecting threads. I love their thread, their book sales, their fabric (I've had a few thin solids, but all the prints have been amazing), their precuts don't have any price markup- and when they are on clearance they are an amazing deal.

    I got hobbs cotton batting in the sale, and really liked it. It is thin, but most batting seems to be these days, but oh so very soft. I wish I had gotten more, but I can't order until next month, so I won't get the sale.

    CT is one of my favorite places to shop on-line and have always been very pleased with every order. I really like the thread also.

    Thinks for asking this question. I have been looking for an online shop to buy thread.

    I buy a lot of my fabric from them since it is 50 miles one way to my nearest fabric store. I have never had a problem with service or quality.
