    Question

    Has anyone bought fabrics from Thousands of Bolts? I'm thinking about putting in an order and wanted to know about quality of fabric, service, returns etc.

    Thanks

    Lynn

    Sorry, I have never heard of them. Is it new do you know? I know that connecting threads is really good but hopefully someone knows of this place. Good luck.

    I saw their ad in a quilting mag a long time ago, it seems like a couple of years. If they carry name brands I think they would be good. Maybe check them out with an order that you don't need quickly and see what their turn around time is and how their customer service is.

    I've never ordered from them, but I've also never seen a bad review. Their customers always seem to love them!

    I shop there frequently. They have quilt shop quality fabrics. They don't usually have the most recent collections, but for the money, it's a great place to shop. Shipping is quick and shipping costs reasonable.

    They carry LQS, quality fabrics and they have a good reputation.

    I ordered from them and had no problems. Plus, they ship by actual weight which can be cheaper depending on quantity ordered.

    I've ordered from them and been very happy. I'm sure we can find bad stuff from anywhere, tho.

    They have excellent quality name-brand fabric. If I need a fabric that has been out for six months or so, I'll look there to see if they have it. Of course, other fabric will call to me...well, you know how that is. With each fabric there is a link to the rest of what they have in that collection, and I also like the color matching feature. Shipping is prompt, and I've never had a problem at all with any order.

    I just went to the site and viewed the tutorials on using their Quilter's Toolbox. It looks like a very easy to use process. The only drawback seems to be that they make it VERY easy to order all the material that you need for the quilt. You just push one button to add it all to your order. Is it ever "too easy" to order material??? lol

    I just placed an order a couple of days ago and have ordered from them in the past. I have been very happy with their quality and service on previous orders. Found several fabrics I have been looking to purchase on sale.

    I've seen them advertised in quilt magazines and wondered about them. Think I will go give a look see.

    I frequently order from them. The fabric is brand name first quality just the same as my LQS, only half price! I find the shipping high on just a few yards, so I try to place a large order rather than just a few yards.
