Quilting Events for 2020 – please visit with us!

We love meeting and visiting with quilters from around the world at quilt shows, festivals and markets, and at guild and retail events in the U.S. and abroad.

Through our conversations we learn more about what you’re creating and your current, and future, quilting product needs. Of course, we also love hearing your insights and suggestions!

Most importantly, these quilting events provide you with the opportunity to ask our batting experts questions, to learn about the various types of batting and which might be best for your next project, and to see and feel the various types of batting in their raw and quilted and washed form. There’s nothing like seeing our batting in action to know which types are best for you!

Hoping to see us at an event near you?

Click here to let us know about it!

And if you’d like to have us present our
‘Batting: What’s Inside Matters’ lecture
at your next quilting event,
please send a request to our marketing department.

We’d love to share our batting expertise with your audience!

How Is Hobbs Batting Helping You?

Hobbs is "the best batting and a wonderful company! You may quote me all you want, I tell everyone about Hobbs..."My sister quilts like it is a job, (in) my life it's a hobby. We both do large and small quilts. She does a lot of service projects. We both do our own quilting...Thank you again for making a wonderful product! Oh yeah, we love all of them!"

Ruth L. from Houghton Lake, Michigan
