Are their fabrics designer quality ? I see they have inexpensive yardage on sale but did not see the designer names as I scrolled the site. May be good backing fabric though. I was ordering Hobbs batting.

I love their fabric. I just wish they could keep their lines longer. I miss out on some of their fabrics because they're gone by the time I get around to purchase it. So get it while you see it, it may be gone tomorrow. I did put in an order this morning for 10 yards of material and 10-12 spools of thread. It was just over $50 so free shipping.

Most of the fabric lines are their own. They are nice fabrics. They are adding some designer prints.

This info is good to know. Their cheaper fabric prices had me wondering if it was good quality or not. I've only bought cotton thread from CT.

I've looked around on there, and they have some very pretty fabrics, very reasonably priced. Heard nothing but good reviews on them here.

I agree. I am always concern with lower prices but maybe it is because they cut out the middle man.

Their precuts are 30% off today only. Good way to get a sample of their fabrics.

I love Connecting Threads fabrics. I seem to order about every couple of weeks when I looked at my credit card statement recently. I find their personal collection to be a good quality but it seems to want to fray easily. I picked up a yard of every one of their batiks about a month ago and found only one that seem very thin compared to the rest of them. I use all their threads for quilting on my machine and though its linty, it only takes a minute to clean out the bobbin area so worth my time compared to their prices. Ordered a few more of their personal collections as they came out with a couple new colors plus some of their newer thread colors I don't have in my collection. I made a chart to help me keep tabs on how many spools of each color I have in stock and found that a couple of them had the same item number but different color name so have marked this on my chart. Also they tend to ciscontinue thread colors and then come back with the same name but a little different shade of color. Hate when they do this.

I do wait till they have a sale on their designer fabrics though as I've gotten used to paying lower prices on their site.
