    thinsulate batting

    What ever happened to thinsulatate batting? It was my favorite batting- so soft and easy to use. Does anyone know were I can purchase some, I can't seem to find it anywhere??? Thank you !

    No that's for jacket lining. I am looking for the quilt batting. But thanks so much for responding.

    Have you tried to "GOOGLE" it? I remember it but have not seen it in a while. Good Luck

    WWW.HomeSEW.com sells it. Check under the quilting category.

    Thinsulate used to be available in the sizes for quilt batting. Cindy and I are both retired 3M employees, and while we were still working there she used it frequently for quilt batting. We used to buy it at the company store at corporate headquarters where we worked. 3M decided to discontinue marketing it for quilt batting, probably because of legal liability issues, a number of years ago. You can still find it in a few places that sell it for jacket linings, etc., but it is already somewhat quilted, at 6 inch intervals. You won't find it readily available in quilt stores. It's a shame, because it was a fabulous batting.

    I went to that web site under quilting - keyword search and entered batting (none came up) then I tried Thinsulate and it said no results. What am I doing wrong? I love this stuff and would sure like to find it. Are you sure it was thinsulate you found. Thanks for you help!!

    Wow- that's why I can't find it. Do you know of anything real similar that would work?
    Thanks so much for the information.
