    All of my fabric is stored on a set of 4 of these shelving units (on wheels) in my studio. I may have to clear off a couple of shelves and make room for a roll of batting. I have wanted to purchase a roll but couldn't figure out how to store it where it would stay clean and be easy to get to. Thanks for sharing your idea.

    That's a clever idea! I've thought about just purchasing a whole roll of batting, but I've held off because I didn't want it just stacked in the corner of a closet. I agree this would make it so much easier to measure. Hmm, you've given me something to think about....

    that is such an awesome idea! I've been dreaming of a better way to get the batting off the roll--now, wait a few years for the kids to grow up and move out, clean the basement and reclaim one of those shelving units and I'll be all set! thanks for sharing!

You can them pull down how much you need by the tape measure and trim it off up at the wood for a nice straight edge.
    That's what my LQS does. No heavy lifting needed after once getting the roll in place.

    Good idea, now back to my drawing board for improvements

    Clever girl. It's always great when we can recycle/re-purpose stuff we already have! Good job.

    Right on!!

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Tartan, that is the perfect solution to having the right length and STRAIGHT to boot. I will have to rig something up in my room for my roll of batting. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

    Wow a whole roll of batting. Your very clever but what about the door behind the shelf! Can you still open it?

    The shelving was just temporarily in front of the closet door. There was more room there for me to arrange the shelves and load my batting. It is located on a wall next to the bed.
