Batting: What’s Inside Matters

Presented by Stephanie Hackney
Director of Sales & Marketing, Craft & Retail
Hobbs Bonded Fibers

This lecture offers quilters and other creatives a chance to learn all about batting, and to possibly WIN FREE BATTING!

This lecture covers:

• the questions we ask quilters to assist them in narrowing down the many
batting choices to what’s ‘best’ for achieving the results they desire
• the various fiber types, and pros and (potential) cons of each type
• what we recommend for specific use cases (modern quilts, charity quilts,
art quilts, wall hangings, runners, throws, etc.)
• proper use and care of battings and quilts
• tips and tricks for best results
• and, a bit of fun!

The lecture is appx. 1-1.5 hours in length, depending on if questions are asked during the lecture or we hold all questions until the end, in which case I’m happy to offer time afterwards for a Q&A session.
