    Have you seen their new fabric line and prices WOW. They have a bunch of solids and they have 3 price ranges still the best around. I'm waiting for one of the solid lines to get there and then I'm placing an order. This came at a perfect time as I think that some of the color on color solids will be perfect for my grandson's quilt. Can't wait!!!!!

I just got an Email from them to"keep the green fabric they sent by mistake. Thanks for being so understanding." Wow, what great customer service. Now what do I do with this green plaid fabric. :-D
    WOW!! That's Great!! Free fabric!!!
    :thumbup: I could really use some of that!! Use it or sell? :lol: :thumbup: :XD:

    I have some of that green plaid, it's really nice, and thick too. If I had 8 yards I'd use it as a backing on a wildlife/woodland type quilt, if that's your thing, or on wide borders on said quilt.

    I ordered a panel from Fabric Depot once. It came in a black background and a white background. They sent the wrong one. When I called them, they sent me the right one and told me to keep the wrong one too. Love that!

    Great customer service breeds business- I am constantly surprised more merchants don't realize this.

    I love Connecting Threads!! With each order I place, I buy a thread set. In March I ordered 2 sets and they sent the same sets instead of 2 different sets. I called and they said mine other was on backorder and they would send it as soon as it came in, and they let me keep the other set. I got my new set 2 weeks later. Love the thread and the fabric!

    Before they closed the doors in Vancouver Wa. , my daughters and I took lessons, did the five dollar block of the month, bought lots of fabric, took hand quilting lessons from Debbie Beeves and it went on.
    We were all so disappointed when they closed the warehouse and moved it. Then they closed the store and went on line only....phftttttt. A great loss to the quilters in that area.
    They had the best ladies working there, I miss them. It isn't the same with a catalog and on line

    It is also nice that Connected Threads is also made in America. I like the fabric too.

    Use it for a quilt or a backing. With 8 yds, you have enough to work with so many things unless you just hate the fabric. Get other fabric that will go with the green if it can be used for the focus fabric

    This is a company on the internet, if you just type in Connecting Threads and they have cheap kits, fabric is about 5.98 a yard, sometimes cheaper, and lots of notions and books at a discount.
