The Quilting Machine Companies also carry a wide poly batting on large
rolls which is also a very cheap way to buy your batting:
American Professional sells the batting by the bale
1 - 2 bales $44.00 each 3 - 4 bales 41.00 each 5 or more 38.00 eachOn one roll of batting you get 72 yards, that is the 2.5 oz batting, now the thicker batting say a 9oz batting there is only 16 yards. You do have to pay for the shipping also on the batting.
