Help! How much batting on a bolt?   General Discussion

How much batting (Hobbs 80/20) is on a new unopened, wrapped-in-plastic bolt? The regular price is $12.99 per yard, and at 40% off, it's a pretty good buy.  The young man at the cash register didn't know, and I didn't want to hold up the line behind me.   Thanks!

I googled for the info, and it appears there would be 30 yards on a full bolt.

HTH!

Fingers crossed!  relaxed

Kind of odd that there isn't a place on the end of the bolt that would state how many yards are on it...

I looked but didn't see anything. It said the width, the brand, the composition, etc.  No length.  Some of the packages were already opened as people bought yardage.  I might have to get a partial one, but it's still at a good price.

Let us know how many yards you get!  I'm sure there'll still be some left today.

OK.  I got a bolt of 15 yards for $116.85; regular price was $194.85.  It's Hobbs Heirloom Batting, 80/20, a blend I like a lot for my quilts.  The good side:  it's so nice to be able to cut to fit and not have large pieces left over.  The bad side:  the roll takes up a lot of room!

Wrap a quilt around it and stand it in a corner of a room somewhere.  Does not have to be in your sewing room.

A very good idea!
