I did take a look at their new forum, project etc...looks like they've done a major overhaul. Too much for me to partake at this time. I've not used their thread but have heard good things about them

I use their thread. I like it. It is less linty than Coats and Clark but I think it is more linty than Aurifil. For the price though, I will use my little lint brush frequently to clean out what I need to! My machine isn't finicky about thread but it is about needles...it likes new sharp needles! I was just getting ready to order some of the larger cones of thread in the neutral colors that I use for piecing. Then I can use my Sidewinder to wind bobbins if I don't want to stop sewing to wind a bobbin.
Overall, I would continue to buy the thread. I like it better than what I get at Joannes.

I have a Bernina. I know that the Bernina people say that the thread should be European....twisted opposite of ours.....I'm wondering if their thread would be ok. I think I will try it....I can use the lint brush too...lol. I use Gutermann now and have to be careful with lint. I need to ask other Bernina quilters if they use only European thread on a different topic..lol.

Okay, the mod can move this where it needs to go, but I just have to chime in here:

I joined their website because I am a glutton for punishment. The more groups the better. :D Actually I don't care for their forum much and the members are growing by leaps and bounds. It does have lots of photos to look through, but my complaint about that is people put some of the stupidest photos on there. Just a waste of space. I wish they would limit it to quilt photos only.

No, Jessica, you don't. That was the point of my not-so-pleasant comment. Just keep your machine clean.

Fortunately for all, I haven't had enough coffeecup to properly seat my , so I'll just let it rain

lol!

There is an Iowa Quilters Group on the connecting threads website. It's kind of confusing to get around. But I don't have to resize my pics to put them on the site. :yahoo:

I don't understand why the European threads would be spun differently than the North American? Does that mean Bernina tests their machines on both NA & European machines? That doesn't make sense, nor have I heard of European threads being spun opposite to ours. It just doesn't make sense. If it is true then I need the European thread because it will work better for us lefties! :hammer:

I'm just really disappointed. I had subscribed to their weekly emails - only to find when I read the shipping info page that they do not ship internationally. I unsubscribed today because there is no sense drooling over some of the pictures (I brought a new keyboard last week because of it) to find that I can't buy it anyway. cry2

Mouse I learned that when they first came out, it is indeed sad but many others ship to us. Oh and keepsake quilting, dont waste your time with them either, they have a base charge for shipping to us and its pure rip off, I dont get their booklet anymore either :-(

I just received my Fall catalog from Connecting Threads and wow am I wishing I had a million dollars to spend! I found lots of quilts and ideas I'm gonna try to make on my own just by looking at the patterns. They look fairly easy.

And the new fabrics are just gorgeous. I could go on and on..........

Have you overseas girls checked out the Moda fabric at Amazon.com...they ship international i think. Just look for fabric that is coming directly from Amazon and not Amazon Marketplace (they may not ship international)
