    Does Connecting threads carry varigated thread and if they do why can't I find it? If they don't carry it where is the best place to get it? Also, does Joanns carry it? I will be going to town next month and could also check there.

    Thanks, Kris

    Joanne's has a large selection of variegates and most online quilt stores also have it.

    I couldn't believe it when you said you couldn't find the thread at connecting threads! I went to the site and I couldn't find it either. I do know JoAnn's carries it, as I just recently purchased some there.

    Good Luck!!!

    They used to and don't seem to now. I sure wish they did. I love the set I got from them.

    Hi, You can find verigated thread at the Quilted Fox in St. Louis, MO. This is a great shop and you can order on line or by phone.

    I sent them a message this morning, and this was thier reply:

    Dear Kim,
    No, I'm sorry, we don't. They weren't up to our standards so we quit having them made. Maybe again at a later date.
    Sincerely,
    Jamie

    Interesting. I'm wondering what kinds of problems they encountered. the ones I have work just fine, I haven't had any problems with them.

    I ordered variegated cotton quilting threads (King Tut) from Superior Thread. I also recommend the Bottom Line for your bobbin thread, you don't have to wind bobbins so often with this product.Shipping is only 3.95 per order. Might be a little pricey,treat yourself to one or two spools to see if you like them. You get quality quilting and sewing threads and great service. Check them out at superiorthreads.com.
