    inn- control vs. soft and stable

    Anybody use these 2 product, I am wondering if they are pretty similar, and how easy they are to work with for quilted bags. Do any of you prefer one over the other

    I've got some Soft and Stable that I haven't tried out yet, but plan to on my very next bag. The description on the Inn-Control product looks very similar. Our LQS also carries something for bag-making called "headliner foam" that is a layer of foam with knit fabric on just one side, again similar to Soft and Stable... You'll have to let us all know how it goes if you decide to use one or the other.

    I've used the Soft and Stable on several bags and love it. It sews wonderfully. Haven't used the inn control. Be careful with the headliner material. I've heard stories of the foam side without fabric covering it causing problems with the machine timing. I did try some of the headliner material from Joann's by putting a piece of fabric on the unlined side. It isn't nearly as stable? Stiff? As the Soft and Stable. (the bag was more floppy). My only problem is that the Soft and Stable is expensive so I only use it for my own bags, not the ones I sell.
