    Space Saver bags for storing batting

    I haven't seen this as a question but if there is already a thread --- let me know.

    Has anyone used the space saver bags to store batting for later use?
    If so, did the batting come back to the original loft? Did you leave batting in
    the factory plastic bags and put it in the space saver or take it out of plastic?
    I currently use large plastic totes and they take up so much space.

    Maybe someone has better ways of storing batting. I would really like some ideas.
    I've put a bed back in my "quilt room" so I do need help.

    I buy batting by the roll, usually wool and leave it standing in a corner some where. I try to pretend like I don't see it but my studio is out of control right now.

    I have been thinking the same thing. I clear out a closet after finishing a couple charity quilts, but have had 40% off coupons to use and bought more batting. So I to will be watching this thread.

    I did use them for left over batting and it all seemed to come back to the original loft. Never measured it, so can't sa for sure. I quit using the bags, they didn't seem to last like they show on TV.

    I buy in bulk and yes, I store the battings in these space bags. THe batting comes out fine! I store all types, wool, cotton, silk, and 80/20. Keeps them neat and compact!

    I have never thought of using these bags and will look into this myself. I currently store my batting in a shelf above my windows in my quilting room. I had left over closet metal shelving the grate type you can see through and put a shelf along the whole wall above my windows. Its high and out of the way but batting is so light and in packages and with the see through shelves I can just look up to see what I have.

    Never thought of it but any idea that helps to keep "all things quilting" under control sounds good to me. Thanks for the inquiry.

    I have never done this, it's good to know its an option. It's a shame we can't put all our fabric in these bags! Imagine all the fabric we could store...........lol

    the last 3 sets of Space bags I bought (at one time) would not hold for more than the time it took me to put them in my sewing room. Still make good storage-------------just won't suck up.

    That is interesting, would probably work well for fleece too.
