    I am noticing our Fabricland has gone way up in batting prices, it is now $39.99 for 100% Warm and White a meter and sometimes they don't even have any in stock.

    Where can I buy it online cheaper and that have Paypal and will ship to Canada?

    Also 100% cotton.

    Thanks! :)

    I will ship batting to Canada and overseas. I have 90" cotton batting for $9 per yard, Wool batting 90" wide for $14.50 per yard and 50% bamboo and 50% Cotton Blend Batting for $11.50 per yard. PM me, tell me how much you need so I can squish it into the smallest box possible, then I will PM back with the postage.

    Oh really? Do you have a store? Is the bamboo batting warm and good for quilting? What name brand is the batting's? Do you have Paypal?

    PM means Private Message. Click on the name of the person just above their avatar (picture) and about half way down, you will see PM. Click on that to send an email to that person. Welcome, goonberrie. Feel free to ask questions. Everyone here is very helpful.

    PM means Private Message, look at the top of your page. When you click on that, you can send a private message to one board member, that won't show up on the main board.

    If you put your question on the board as a new topic, you are likely to get more answers. To do that, click on Home, Main, then on New Topic, and away you go.

    I looked on Ebay and found warm an natural for $3.60 a yard plus $2.61 for shipping to Canada. Oh my gosh that is cheap! Yay!

    Has anyone bought batting as squares? Is it easier to quilt it that way?

    The batting is by Fairfield. The bamboo has anti-bacterial qualities because bamboo is processed with hydrogen-peroxide to break down the fiber. It is very soft. Most underware and socks are made with bamboo. Also it's a sustainable product.

    Yes, I have a store that is opening, but the website is not active yet, still in beta testing. You can look at the site at http://pele.lunarmania.com/~beaut88/, but you cannot order from it yet. You would have to pm me or send me an email at [email protected]

    If you are really looking for warm, then the wool is the best. Also, it's very soft.

    We take paypal and will ship all over the world.

    if you put the batting in a plastic bag and use vac to suck the air out it's almost like the vac bags you buy on line

    Frankly and sadly I don't set my foot in Fabricland. I hate their membership
    policy and their prices are outrageous. I prefer to just buy all my fabric online.

    Keep an eye on fabric.com. Sometimes they offer free shipping if you
    buy for X amount so it's time to load up. :) Their prices are reasonable
    and I see they accept Paypal.

    EasyPeezy - sorry, what do you mean about Fabricland? Do they require MEMBERSHIPS to purchase from them?

    This store, years ago, used to be just great. But they closed the local store and I've not had occasion to shop them since.

    Yes you need a mebership to get the sale prices from Fabricland.

    They don't sell 100% cotton batting, I have spoken with them. Thanks!

    More or less. If you have a membership then you are entitled to a discount. Otherwise you pay full price. I just don't see why I should
    pay a membership to buy fabric. Ridiculous.

    I purchase my 100% cotton Warm & White by the roll from Joannes.com. I don't know if they ship to Canada or if they have pay pal, but it might be worth a look. They usually have 40% off sales and sometimes 'internet' specials, where you can get an extra 15% OFF. This week batting is 40% off AND internet special of 15% off so a queen roll is only 190.00 USD. That's a great price.

    Good Luck!

    I normally just wait until Joann's has a 40 or 50% off coupon and buy a bolt of batting. Thank works out pretty slick. :)

    I asked them awhile back about shipping to Canada, she said No and they don't ever plan to. :(

    I don't go to Fabricland unless forced to, or I'm to lazy to drive to Len's Mill or Joann's in Niagara Falls, NY.

    They closed the one closest to my house, so we have to go the next city over.

    In Canada Fabricland is the ONLY chain fabric store anymore. There are local ones (Len's Mill does have several different locations in Southern ON but that's IT!)

    I'd take advantage of whatever deals you can find online for batting!!!

    i pretty much shop on line mostly at fabric.com in Marietta Georgia,USA; i am pretty sure they ship to Canada. they have great prices a huge selection of everything, great fabrics, wonderful customer service. they carry Warm & Natural, and a couple other batts. i highly recommend them, i;ve been a regular customer with them for over 10 years. have never had a bad experience...and that isn't to say there have not been errors, there have been a few but i would say maybe 1 out of 15 orders might have a wrong cut, wrong fabric, something. they always fix it immediately, very kindly. they have great sales and here in the us a wonderful shipping policy, i can only imagine they work just as hard for International too.

    Check the width. I have found some that is more narrow than others.
