    Has anyone heard of the Connecting Threads Warehouse Sale? Ir is supposed to be somewhere in Ohio. I heard it is fabulous. Lots of books and fabric by the pound. If so how often do they have the sale? And when is the next one?

    It was in August in Grove City. I went with a friend, and if it's going to be an annual event, we won't miss it! Wow, we had fun and got so much fabric. All fabric was $2.96 a pound, and books were $3 (I think). They also had bolts of fabric, yarn, kits, and I think that's it. I spent about $40 and I filled two 13-gallon trash bags with fabric.

    typically 2.5-3 yards weighs a pound depending on the weight of the fabric.

    connecting threads tends to be on the thin side so you might actually get a little more then 3 yards.

    I've read on here that their batiks are thin, but I don't use batiks. Their other cotton fabrics that I've bought (other than at the warehouse sale) are very good quality. One thing I noticed about the fabric I purchased at the warehouse sale was that much of what I picked out was dated 2010 and 2011 on the selvage.

    Hmmm, I didn't know about this. Although I'm in Canada, I would be about 4 hrs away. Not a bad trip to take. I best mark this in my calendar so I don't forget.

    As I recall the name on the building was something like Craft America and I think it was near Bolton Field. A friend of mine is on their weekly newsletter list and she told me about it. I think this year was the second year and it is for Ohio residents only. We could pay by check only--no cash or credit cards.

    The only reason I could think of for paying by check only was to prove that we were actually residents of Ohio, since we had to provide a photo ID and I'm sure most people used their drivers license.
