Gutermann is the best thread, it's worth the extra cost.  I have bought fabric at Fsbric.com before (quilt fabric). Quilt fabric makes great pillow cases because it washes so well.

I actually ordered 2 in white from Amazon that should be delivered tomorrow, I got it for $7.06 each, it got great reviews.

I never heard that sea about the thread, if anything, crafters and sewers always have tons on hand. I ordered this along with the gutermann just to have extra polyester thread on hand:

Just got some coupons from Joann's and some excerpts from their upcoming flyer, flannel is on sale $2.99 a yd. which is a great buy, even cheaper then Walmart.

We have a lot of fleece material.
It's used to make pouches, bags, toys and hammocks for our squirrels.

I thought about doing quilting but it's really time consuming, I'd rather just go out and buy 1.

I've thought about it too.  Never really tried.  I would rather knit, crochet, embroider or do needlepoint.

Phew.

I was feeling kind of bad, since I thought I was the only guy getting updates about new replies on this thread.

Nice squirrels.  :-)

I like when the guys make comments, I feel that real men that will comment on women topics, are the best ones of all.....

I have no problem with the men making comments, it's kind of cute.

I just like getting a man's point of view, on subjects that normally pertain to women.

I can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm going to try to do a quilted duvet cover, and I still have the fabric that I bought months ago to do roman shades in the bedroom. I'm doing the quilt 1st.

How were you planning on doing the hardware on those shades? 

I really like those, and never thought about having spousal unit make our own.  We haven't found any with fabric we like.

Had to watch one to find out what a Roman Shade was.
I'll stick to squirrel bags.
