    Has anyone shopped here?

    This online store: http://www.connectingthreads.com/Quilting.cfm

    has amazingly low prices. I wonder if anyone's bought anything there.

    I shop there and have always been happy with fabric and thread. Just tried their LA thread and love it. I also buy books when on sale from them. I think it is a great place for online shopping. Just remember everyone has different experiences anywhere they go.

    Everyone has probably shopped there. It is a good sight to buy from. When I took my quilting class, the instructor was telling me about it. She said it is so nice to sit in your jammies, order fabric and then have it delivered in a timely fashion. Love your avatar!!!

    I shop there often and have never been unhappy with either service, shipping or quality. I love the Essentials thread too...color matched to fabrics!

    I put in an order almost every month and never have been disappointed. Super quality, prices and service. Shopping at CT can be extremely addicting.

    i buy 95% of my threads from Connecting threads- i pick up battings when they are having a great sale- i've picked up a few other things from them- they have free shipping at the $50 level- so i take advantage of that- they have good customer service- have been around for a long time & my orders have arrived quickly (sometimes the day before i get the email saying it shipped)

    Some really love it ... others not so much.. I suggest placing a limited order to make sure it meets your expectations.

    Yes, I've bought from them and have been completely happy. In fact I need to put an order in soon. I always shop their sales. As mentioned above there are no guarantees but I've had very good luck in fast service from them. I've been pleased with their thread.

    I order from them all the time. Their prices are great especially when they have sales which is often.

    Connecting Threads have been around for years! I shop online from them at least once a month.
    Got fabric?

    I've ordered a lot from them. Especially thread. I have always been happy with their service and with the merchandise. They ship quickly, too.

    I really like their thread but have not liked some of their fabric--dull colors.

    I have shopped at connectingthreads.com many, many times. I have made several of their kits and have not been disappointed with the fabric quality or the patterns. Love their Essentials thread!!

    I've ordered from them. Beautiful fabrics, great prices & great service. I must say though I do find their thread too "linty" for my taste. I do machine quilting & FMQ on my DMS & have to be careful when using their thread to clean out my bobbin area frequently.

    Right now in their catalog, they have a big tool sale at 40% off. Don't know if that is for online or not, but you can go check.

    I've been very happy with my transactions. All the items I've bought have been of good quality and I've enjoyed the customer service.
