Today I was helping my MIL cut out batting squares for her newest QAYG quilt. She had just bought a new package of batting at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon. She spread out the batt and preceeded to cut her squares, but on closer inspection we realized that the batting was used! :shock:
Sure enough, there was a machine stitched outline of a simple quilt and even some squiggly ripped thread! At least it was clean...and at least she got it on sale!!! I'll be buying batting off the bolt from now on, thank you!

The same person who bought that batting, used it, and then returned it is probably the same type of person that would buy a new outfit, leave the tags on it, wear it, and then return it to the store to get their money back!!! :evil: It's unbelievable what some people will do!!! :thumbdown:

I would have taken it back and gotten a new package. That's terrible.

When I worked at Sears, their motto was complete customer satisfaction, so women (not men) would wear a pair of shoes for an evening, and then return them, and with a straight face, say they were not worn. Policy was to take them back. We did NOT resell them.

Yes, the batting should have been returned.

I bought my last packaged batting. The last one I bought, I found had a big THIN area in the middle. I was able to compensate.........it's just too far to town to even return it. and yes, I got it on sale, too!!!
I like Warm and Natural or Warm and White from the bolt, thank you.

Yes, I would have taken it back too. You make a good point to buy from the bolt. I always throw in the dryer to fluff it up and would see thin places but I think I'm a bolt lady now. Thanks for the tip. :thumbup:
