    We have recently been encountering problems with our supplier and were wondering where you purchase your bulk rolls of batting from, and if you've had any problems with delivery or quality of the batting.

    I have purchased whole bolts of Warm and Natural (or White) from Joann's in the past w/ a coupon. Works out to be a pretty good deal. Some stores want you to special order it if your purchase will deplete the store stock, but the wait is only a few days to a week.

    I did purchase from Kingsmen but they will not be in business later this year so the latest I ordered is from Lakeside Quilting Co. Since I ordered within the past two days I haven't received a shipping statement and am curious to see how long it takes to deliver. I have ordered from Missouri Quilts in the past also, it took a while to receive but I think they had someone out ill and no one to keep up his job. I think usually they are probably much better than the experience I had. I'll be watching this thread to see what places and experiences others have had. I order and use Hobbs 80/20.

    I buy Warm and natural at JoAnns with a 50% off and it costs me $200.00 and it lasts forever and as smaller pieces are cut off I sew them together to make baby and lap size pieces.
    peace

    Joann's and I use my 40% off coupon unless batting in on sale for 50% off. Never pay full price....it leaves more money for fabric!

    Ditto...My hubby kept getting tired of hearing me say I need more batting...So one day he said lets just go buy the whole roll. I had the 50% off coupon so he took me. I've done this twice now. :0)

    I would love to be able to buy the whole roll, as I do use it! The 50% coupons do help!

    I buy the rolls of W&N and W&W from JoAnn's online. Around Christmas time is usually the best time, since the batting is usually 50% off, plus they have coupons that can be applied (e.g., $35 off if the sale is over a certain amount, $15 if over another amount) and sometimes even free shipping.

    Have you tried Batt Mart? Not sure of the spelling, but they have some pretty good prices.

    Thank you for sharing this link. I am another who likes to support the "little guys" when I can. I compared her prices on a couple of items...she's less expensive that many! My next order will be through her when I need to reorder batting.

    Where did you hear, Kingsmen Quilting Supply was going out of business? Just wondering, since there is nothing to that affect shown on their web site.

    After a few days of researching, we discovered where our supplier was shipping our batting from. And after talking to the the place it was being shipped from we discovered we could purchase the same bulk roll batting direct from them, Our supplier was charging us 2 1/2 times as much as what we can buy direct from the factory. I'm unsure as to the rules on here or I would post the names of the problem supplier, and the name of the factory we now will be purchasing it from.

    I'm pretty sure, you would not get into any trouble posting where you are purchasing your batting now. However, you might get in trouble mentioning your old supplier.
