I know some of us in other countries have mentioned how expensive it is for us to quilt. Here's a good example. About 4 months ago, I bought 2 cases of Hobbs Heirloom queen batting from Hancocks of Paducah. That's a total of 12 batts. With shipping to my Michigan sister-city, just across the bridge, and currency exchange, the price worked out to about $14 a batt. Yesterday we received a Fabricland flyer in our paper, Fabricland being our large, national fabric store. Woohoo! They had Warm and Natural queen batts on sale! Just $30 each! That's a steal! Regular price in the flyer is $70 EACH! I am not joking. Now you know why I buy just about everything for quilting from the US and pay shipping.
