    I have never bought fabric from connecting treads and I was wondering if any of you have. I was looking at some of their kits and thinking about buying one and was wondering how does their fabric compare to Moda fabric or another name brand?

    I bought some yardage of the sweet and Sour line $5.96 yd it is of a very good quality, also bought some of the close out fabs and it was just as good.

    Their kits are great and very reasonable. I also buy their thread. Never had a problem with either.

    I love them as well. They are very comparable to moda imho. Almost everything I have is moda before I found this website and I love the prices and the quality!

    At one time CT sold fabric that was not made for them. Some of the fabrics were iffy in quality. Now all the fabric is made to their specifications. If you call or email and ask for a fabric sample they will send you one.

    I have several kits I bought in '09 and the fabric is just beautiful. I would love to know if you all prewash your fabric from Connecting Threads? I have always prewashed, but this fabric just feels so wonderful I don't want to. My rationale is if I don't do any it might be okay.
    I do appreciate any advice you can give me.

    I just received a package from them last week and I couldn't believe how smooth and expensive the fabric feels. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

    Also love their thread--sale prices can't be beat!

    I received a new email from Connecting Threads last evening, but I've not checked it out completely yet.
    I've been busy looking & drooling over my new toy. I purchased the AccuQuilt GO cutter from Nancy's and am so excited.
    CT advertise all their material is made in the USA. And I too love how it feels, glad to hear you don't prewash and haven't had any trouble.

    I LOVE MODA..they are my favorite...However...I have been buying some of the connecting threads kits because they are fabulous prices...and I would say their fabric is second rate...moda is the best.
