    So I saw the post on Connecting Threads "seconds" and took a look at their new Batiks. The price is very good compared to my local fabric shop. So, my question to all is, if you ordered from Connecting Threads were you happy with the quality of the Batik or any new material in general?

    Thanks in advance for your responses...

    Their fabrics are great although I haven't ordered their batiks yet. I have ordered from them several times and their service has also been top notch. It is a great site to order batts from when they have them on sale.

    I just ordered 4 of her kits and am super pleased. Quality is wonderful and there is more than plenty of fabric to finish the kits.

    i'm the odd one out, i don't care for their fabrics/batiks, thread, or customer service.

    i find their fabric to be very thin, their cotton thread makes so much lint, and the customer service - for me - wasn't the best either.

    i have used the pro thread and its good except the color selection is very limited.

    I've had nothing but positive interactions with them. I even had a problem with an order recently, and resolving it was a pleasant experience. Sorry you had problems, fabric fancy.

    Their fabric and batiks are not the same quality as Moda, Hoffman etc. but worth the price.

    I love Connecting Threads!!! I ordered online Sunday night and when I came home today the box was waiting for me. Just in time for dreary, rainy weekend fun:) I ordered 5 yards of the swirl batik for backing, 8 spools of thread and 2 more yards of thread for another project. Their fabric is great quality.

    I highly recommend CT's customer service! I have only bought the charms in the batik line but, I loved the designs. I wouldn't hesitate ordering batik yardage at all!

    I have ordered fabric from them before and was pleased. Great customer service. My opinion is that the quality is not quite comparable with the best, most expensive, of the LQS fabric, but probably compares with the average. Some LQS fabric is soft and rich feeling. CT fabric probably has somewhat less threads. Can't beat it for the price.
