Connecting Threads Batiks

Posted by magothyrivergirl (My Page) on

Has anyone ordered the batiks from Connecting Threads? If so, how do they compare with the Batiks we are used to buying? The few fabrics I have bought from CT seem to have a rougher texture than I like and wondered if the batiks were the same. Anyone have any experience with them?

Yes, Marsha. I found a black batik on sale I wanted and when it came, it was about half the thickness of what I buy here. No wonder it was so cheap. I used it as a background for flags and it worked fine but their batiks are terribly thin and flimsy. I have other fabrics from them that are good, though. I just won't order batiks from them.

RE: Connecting Threads Batiks

Thank you - I value your opinion. I suspected it was not the same quality. I have not bought much fabric from them. I did buy a collection of FQ's - hand dyes - last year that I did like. I will stay away from the batiks.
