    Over the past few years it has become clear to me that despite the fact you are not located near where I live ( Upstate NY ) By far I have always loved your products and when given the chance, I always tell new quilters “you need to know this website Connecting Threads they have the best fabric for unbelievable prices”
    I am very thankful for you (family) and all your wonderful employees!! May God Bless your Thanksgiving!

    What makes your website the best is that we know exactly what we are buying (Catalogue view, close-ups, pics of each fabric we are getting, to pages inside the books that we want to purchase). No other website does that! Mahalo means thank you in Hawaiian. May you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Day and eat eat eat til you drop, then take a nap, and all is well. From a repeat, repeat, repeat, etc. customer. Your prices are the best!

    Hooray for you for giving your employees Thanksgiving day off. The best way of fighting the shopping craze is not to patronize places that are open that day. The first time I ever shopped the day after Thanksgiving was in 1978. I have never done it since.

    Now, all my stuff is prepared and I’m getting back to my sewing machine!

    As many have stated before me, I am very glad you have taken Thanksgiving Day off–how refreshing!! I am NOT doing any shopping tomorrow….I am just not. I am sad that many stores are open…even if some of their employees choose to be there….ugh! Thank you for cherishing your families and employees so much that you actually close. Good for you! I LOVE Connecting Threads and this just confirms why!! Enjoy the holiday. I will happily send in an order AFTER Thanksgiving. 🙂

    Thank you for letting your employees spend the holiday with their families. I have lost a lot of respect for the stores that insist on opening Thanksgiving Day. Christmas shopping has gotten way out of hand and retail is losing site of family values. I don’t believe these stores will lose sales. They will just have bigger sales on Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. Your tops in my book!
