Hello,

I am in search of the below fabric.  I purchased it from connecting threads.com as a part of a fat quarter bundle.

I have contacted Connecting threads and they do not have anymore of this fabric and they will not be making anymore.

I am looking for 1/2 yd to finish a project. It is called Scrollwork Celebration. It was stock #4897.

Thanks,

Connecting Threads manufactures and sells there own line of fabric.  I have never seen any other manufacturer's fabric listed on there website.  Here is there response "I am so sorry, no it will not be re-printed"

Connecting Threads makes its own fabric. They print a certain amount of each collection then no more. When it's gone it's gone. This is true for many manufacturers. No fabric line is available indefinitely. Sometimes, if it's popular, they'll do a second run.

Maybe someone has some of this fabric and will be willing to sell you some of it.

I wouldn't boycott CT because their prices are lower and they make good fabric.

You are so right and the advise you gave is good advise.  I am so sorry she can't get any more but maybe someone out there just might have it.  Just keep checking.  Good Luck.

Renee, so sorry you can't get this fabric anymore, I used it for a border for my Build a Kit table topper, I went to look and see what I had left, but sorry to say it is just scraps as I did order through Build a Kit.
Hope someone has some, I loved this!

Donna, I am sure you are just joking here as

to boycott Connecting threads would be like cutting off your index finger, I love their fabrics, their sales and the batiks at $6.07 who can get that?? Free shipping at $50, that's easy to do and the threads they have are superior. I use them for piecing very good strong threads. check them out.

PS if you haven't used the build a kit then you simply must try it, SOOOO inexpensive and you get what your color needs are. Not a fabric shop making up the kits in their fabrics.  

I am finishing this quilt for my Mother and it was called Christmas Paws well I am using Maple Sky collection and it is just beautifulHappy Quilting !!

Have been quilting for 3 months and have already found just this problem with many fabric makers - don't boycott because of all these comments I am going to check it out.  We sure do learn a lot from each other!!  Thanks

Renee,  yes I was kidding about the boycott.  Since I have never ordered anything from them,  they wouldnt even notice if I boycotted.  lol.  But it was just a joke.
