    I just bought some thread from them and it looks wonderful. It costs about 1/3 the amount of LQS. I think thread is way to expensive.

    Their fabric holds up very well even under the tortured use by a 2 yr. old that LOVES his quilt. Their thread is consistently twisted, the correct way for threading through needles, and leaves little lint on and in my machines. Even when calculating the cost including shipping, CT makes this frugal shopper very happy!!!

    must have been there older fabrics...the last batch I bought of their marbles was very thin...just like hobby lobby and walmart fabric.

    I just got 2 spools of thread and 14 yards of material for 52.00. I've shopped with them for a long time and never been disappointed. Check out the clearance section for some great deals.

    I just browsed their site and came up with some neat Tutorials - something I am always on the look-out for since I don't live anywhere near classes - what I saw so far was neat - going back and give some of it a try.

    I received my latest order of batik's from Connecting Threads just the other day and I must say they are far better quality then what I got from HOP and I'm still waiting for the completion of that order from HOP.

    Great customer service and fast shipping, what's not to like about CT fabric.

    I love their stuff and order frequently from them. However they will not ship free to Alaska no matter what the value of the shipment but they do have a flat rate for shipping for us. Sometimes we combine orders and split the shipping.

    I've been getting their catalogs for a long time but have never ordered fabric. All your comments have convinced me. I need to place an order! I love the looks of their stuff but was always unsure whether the quality would be what it should be. Thanks!

    I have heard very good reviews. I wish they had a retail store, I just have to look at stuff before I buy it. I do see some of the collections on their sales and I'm often tempted. Will probably give in one day when I get a few of my projects done.

    I also just purchased 4 pieces of batiks that Connecting Threads had on sale. I received them in a timely manner, and the quality is great. I definitely will buy from them again.

    Speaking of connecting threads, I ordered a catalog weeks ago, no sign of it. How long should it take?

    I love Connecting Threads. Have bought lots of material from them. Price is great. I qualify for the free shipping most of the time. It is a great bargin if 2 or 3 quilters get together to order, cause any order over 35.00 is free shipping.

    Since I read about the quality of fabric from Connecting Threads I ordered some, plus a book and 2 spools of thread to try. Can't wait for it to arrive!

    Posted a quilt today made with a collection from Connecting Threads. I love the fabric. I don't wash before making a quilt. I just throw in the color catchers. This quilt washed beautifully. I only use their thread. Love it.
