    Buying batting in bulk

    I would like to find a place to purchase batting by the roll. I like to use the 80/20 blend. I would be interested in knowing if you purchase it this way and if so, where you get it. I may consider getting backing that way too. I know that I can get it by the bolt at Joann's. I usually get the Legacy Studio muslin. I live 70 miles from the nearest Joann store and half the time when I go they are out of what I need. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    I buy batting by the roll from the JoAnn's web site and sometimes in the store.

    buffalo batts has a wide variety of batting options to choose from- i often purchase bolts of batting from Joannes on line-using a coupon- i pretty much never go to the store-
    if you search (batting by the bolt) you will find many sources to purchase from.

    You can ask Joanne's to order it for you or check stock before you make the trip too

    Use JoAnns on line ... when they have a free shipping offer and the batting is on sale! Shipping for a roll of batting can get pricey .

    You can special order the stuff you want at Joanns and use you coupons too! You just have to pay for it whenyou order it.I bet they would ship it directly to your house too!.I recently purchased a large amount of batting online from them as well and had no problems.Happy Holidays

    I haven't purchased from this website yet, but plan to get quilting thread. Their batting prices look really good too:

    (This was originally KenQuilt, but I think they split off the supplies from the quilting machines.)

    Also check out www.benfranklin.com , although I don't think they have 80/20. They do have Warm and Natural they sell in bulk. They have really good prices, but their shipping can be very slow.

    Thanks for the link. I looked at the different batting they have and was wondering have you ever tried their wool batting? I never tried wool and would love to try it but I care a lot about quality so would love to try good kind.
    Thanks for any feedback

I do quilting for customers so am 2ondering if I should add it to my available battings. I have never used it so do not know in what ways it would be different form 100% cotton or the Hobbs Polydown.

    Anyone every ordered from here? http://www.quilternatives.com
    It's the batting I love, and their prices look good (I've asked about shipping to Canada) although they only have 40 and 61" batting right now.

    Quilter's Dream has WONDERFUL wool batting. Right now I am quilting a wedding gift for a client and they wanted it "puffy" and warm. I read on another forum (bad bad) that they put QD cotton select on the bottom and Then a layer of QD wool for extra puffiness and definition. I just made the first pass tonight and love the look and it should be nice and warm.

    I do have a tax ID. I am checking this out. Cheryl, do you recommend a certain type that they have? I usually use a cotton poly blend or all cotton?
