How much does a full roll of batting cost? Hobbs 80/20 or Warm and Natural.[/QUOTE] On the Joann website, it is listed at $449 for 90 yds. I buy it with a 50% off coupon.

And doesn't it make you feel good to have that big fat roll just waiting for you to use! Mine does

Thanks for mentioning this hint. I always thought the roll was just so you have a large supply, I never thought of the folds since I have only purchased the packaged, there are always folds. Now a large roll makes sense.

I started buying by the bolt on line because my LQS never seemed to have what I wanted in the size I wanted. Another benefit to buying by the bolt is I can cut to the size I need and I don't have as many leftovers to sew together later on.

It sounds like such a great idea ... but where do you keep something that huge? Looking around, I think I would have to bungee cord it to my ceiling! Still, I'll bet it's worth it!

I agree,I buy by the roll also.I think there is a little less waste that way too.

I don't buy by the bolt but usually buy about 10 yds. at a time when on sale.

I stash the whole rolls in the downstairs closet. The in use rolls are hanging from the ceiling. Then I can unroll as I need them. Granted, as the rolls run low, I get my nephew to stand on the table and pull the end down.

I followed another QBer's advice and my roll of batting is now hanging on the wall. I used clothes-rod supports and a 1" rod.
