    I recently received a catalog from Connecting Threads... the Hobbs batting seems to be a good price... and can be delivered to the home if i spend 50.00... just wondering if any of you use their's... i ususally get Joann's with coupon, but am tired of trying to juggle the time frames... i should just bite the bullet and buy a huge roll, but not quite ready for that yet... so any commets will be appreciated... thanks... Barbara :D

    Hey Barbara, I can only speak on the fusible Hobbs, and I like it alot. I do QAYG alot and it works out great for my projects. Its also repositionable so if I need to un-stick and adjust its no problem. CT puts in on sale alot too.

    i use their fusible a lot. 80/20. it comes in a package and sticks together. you have to unstick it as you open the roll. that's the main thing i dislike about it. they should roll it up with paper inbetween.

    My Joann's doesn't carry Hobbs 80/20 any longer, it does have Fairfield 80/20 which I don't care for. I need to order a certain fabric from Conn. Threads and think I'll add a few packages of Hobbs batting to my order so I can get the free shipping. May in Jersey

    I use Hobbs 80/20 and I like it. I buy it from my LQS. The owner is great and guaranteed if I didn't like it she would refund my money.

    I love Hobbs 80/20 but no one around carries it anymore. I may have to order some when I get my income tax rebate.

    I have used Hobbs. I love the poly down for a wash and wear quilt for it's puff. I use wool in all my own quilts.

    Kingsmen Quilting has rolls. I like them because if I only need 70", I cut 70", so I don't have a lot of waste. Kingsmen quote you a shipping price but bill you what it costs. So here in Wisconsin the shipping is pretty cheap, never what the initial amount that is given says.

    Oh what a coincidence. On PBS they are showing how Hobbs makes it.

    Hobbs batting is made in Waco, TX, and is a big favorite with LQS in the state. It was the ONLY batting I used for years and years.....cotton 80/20, Thermore, organic cotton, and their wool I love!

    I like Hobbs 80/20 batting for both hand and machine quilting. It has a soft drape which I like.
