Gosh, some of the patterns and kits are gorgeous!
I love all the reds and blacks together.
The tote on the cover is calling my name.
I don't buy their thread any more (although I have some that a number of years old), I'm always afraid that it's too linty. Maybe that's not true.

I just got it and YES, the kits are great. A few of them are calling my name as well! I'm really interested in doing some more table runners and may pick up the Runnermania book, too!

Their thread is a bit linty, but as long as you clean after every bobbin- it is great thread. My machine seems to love it.

I love Connecting Threads fabrics and kits too.

I just started using their thread I didn't really find it to be that linty. And the price is right especially if you buy the sets.

I have to chuckle about linty thread because I'm not getting the problem. Fabric is just as linty, and you still have to clean your machine.

I bought the bloomin stars wall hanging kit and a bunch more fabric from the Rose Manor set. Those colors go with my decor perfectly. I will use the wall hanging as a table cloth! I also am beginning to buy fabric when they have sales. I am NOT a quilter so have zero cotton stash. Polar fleece and knits...well that is another story.

uh oh...I went back in to "look". I find the mirage fabrics are wonderful for just stash...and then I thought I could make more things with that Rose Manor collection/ the colors are a perfect match in my den... and then I saw some good stash stuff in the clearance...well needless to say...my cart was obscene. Thimbleberries Lynette Jensen says stash is 1 yard of what you like, 3 yds if it's really good and 6 yards if it's terrific. UH-OH!!!!!
I plan to dump the fabric in a vinegar and water color set process before I wash it.
It's all y'alls fault...I never would have done it without your leading me to my demise.
