Wow, that is so expensive!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Thought I'd better clarify...I bought my batting from Hancocks online.
If you go to walmart.com..the warm and natural batting for a full size is 8.00..Not sure what the shipping is to have it shipped to your door but, if you ship from store to store it is free shipping
I pay £20 ($32) for a queen size Quilters Dream Blend wadding, this is about the equivalent in quality to a Warm & Natural but I prefer it as it stays softer... I know some of my fellow English and European quilters order from the US but I prefer to keep my custom in the UK - it's more expensive I know (fabric averages £10 or $16 per metre) but I prefer to give my business to my fellow countrymen - plus if I don't use them, I'll lose them and I like being able to go to either of my two local ladies' shops and actually talk to them and see the fabric first - although I must admit I buy the wadding online but that's because they're the only UK supplier of it (Cotton Patch) and I have met them at shows and like their service. Just my personal choice... :-D
I find my 80/20 on sale at Linda electic quilters for cheap.
Thanks for all the info on where to by batts. I am always searching. Our Wal-Mart closed and moved to a supper store and doesn't sell fabric or batts.
$3.88 shipping for 4 to me, less than $1 each - yipee!Originally Posted by Diana Lynne
Uh-oh. Might be too good to be true. I am in the checkout but it's "hung". Or is it that everyone from here has clogged the checkout line? LOL
Thanks to Diana Lynne from another Diana Lynn (NO e!)
One good thing for us Canadians, our dollar is getting stronger so shopping with American retailers is definatly the way to go. Blows me away when I see the exact same item here for 18.99 a yard compared to 9.99 in the US. Needless to say I can't afford to support my LQS. I understand the buy local concept, but my money comes hard and I have to be very careful with it. Sorry LQS!
