    Thank you for the info....I will be supporting Hobbs from now on! And I live in Las Vegas. My daughter went to TWU, in Denton and loves TX. She is now living there.
    Believe, it can be done!

    I've been using their 80/20 for a very, very long time. I love it!

    So even if I was not "Made in USA" my quilts can be.
    I think the 20% poly is the bonding agent. The Hobbs Heirloom is one of my most favorite batts because it's not needle punched and it's much softer after it's quilted. Plus it has a little bit of loft that gives your quilting some definition. You can really get some great texture with Hobbs Heirloom

    the cost to ship to other countries is high, and the process to do all the paperwork needed to send out of country takes a lot of time...I know because I used to send replacement parts to Canada daily.

    Connecting threads had a huge sale on Hobbs and I brought several 80/20. I love the crinkle!
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    Thanks for taking the time to tell us about the Hobbs lecture. It's nice to know that Hobbs is eco-friendly and uses as much US product as possible. I became a Hobbs user years ago when I started machine quilting. I'm glad to know that I did the right thing without knowing it!

    I wish they had a high loft batting, I think the thin stuff is not that warm and quilts made with it and the W&N are just too thin. Just my opinion.
