    Joann Fabric Batting

    JoAnn is advertising a web sale on batting. It is a brand called Soft N Crafty Toasty. It is advertised as 100% natural clean cotton. I usually use Warm and Natural 80/20. Just wondering if anyone has any experience utilizing this brand. It is on sale for $99.99 (regular 274.99). It seems like a great deal!

    I know little about batting but it does sound like a really good deal. Maybe talk to one of your local long arm quilters to see what they know about it.

    Will be interested to hear what people have to say. Saw it in a ad and looked at it in the store. Seems like a good answer if you wanted a little higher loft and warmth.

    The only review I found for it was on the manufacturer's website (Fairfield). I wonder if it's a new product?

    I am always suspicious if the price sounds too good to be true unless I have experience with the product. Tried the Pellon cotton batting - because it was less expensive than Warm and Natural and was disappointed. Maybe you can try it with a small project and buy a small piece. Waiting to hear more.

    I'll have to run over there today and see if the local store has any after I check to see if there are any tutorials on it.

    90" wide X 25 yards for $99, use coupon PAAH103 for free shipping. Sounds like a deal, the reviewer seems to say she saw a very little difference. Might be worth it if , you have an extra hundred laying around and bir or many projects in the works!!
