    Other than sew batik, fabric.com and Hancocks of Paducah, does anyone know of anywhere else to get batik backings?

    Also, does anyone know if there are any RK batik backings?


    TIA

    2 of our lqs carry them - when i stop in next i will check to see who the manufacturer is-
    if you visit places like batiks.com, blue bamboo, batiks plus...now i cant think of the others...but if they do not have them you can go to the manufacturers sites---on the main sites will be a link ...where to find their fabrics---click on that link - it will tell you the shops who are carrying them

    If you go to Quiltshops.com and type in batik wide back, you get a lot of results. I usually opt for the images search and I can browse thru at a glance to see what I like.

    Here's the link:

    My LWQ carries a few ... perhaps a dozen or so. They also carry Northcott Stonehenge in wide backing ... plus others of course. I've got a good supply of wide stuff from my place.

    THANKS! for this question. I never researched it but thought we were limited to white, black and 2-3 choices at JoAnne's. I HATE piecing backs.

    Also try www.sewbatiks.com and www.batiks.com( when this one comes up select the Batiks Etcetera & Sew What)
    Both sites carry wide backing batiks. I have ordered from both. :thumbup:

    Haiks in Springfield, MO has the wide Tonga batiks backings for wholesale. You have to buy the entire bolt but at $7-8 a yard, it is worth it.

    I have used a mail order and online place called Batiks Etcetera. I have always been pleased with their wide batiks.
