    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

    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.

    Hobby Lobby used to have it but i think www.keepsakequilting.com has it and maybe www.connectingthreads.com too
    I'm thinking of Thermore-http://www.connectingthreads.com/too...g__D20825.html

    About 3 years ago, I came across a bolt of it on Ebay. I bid on it and won! My price $8 and free shipping! I still have about 1/2 a bolt of it. I like to use it for wallhangings.

    I know this thread is old and I'm not sure who will see this, but I have an entire bolt of this that I received intending to use but I just never had the time. I wanted to use it for a large project that was more than I have experience for. Would anyone be interested?

    I have one package of this batting but I never used it because it was so thin. If you ever visit So CA on vacation, contact me and it is yours. I think it is a twin size.

    I have a huge roll of this stuff. Have never opened it yet. Bought from company about 10 years ago when I heard at a meeting for long arm quilters in Omaha, Ne that it was good but not going to be available. Haven't used it yet because wasn't sure if it was going to be to warm or what the loft after quilting would be. So why did you like it so much?

    I'm with quiltstringz, you might like Thermore. It has a perfectly even thin thickness, and is really easy to work with.
