In the video below we share how we assist quilters (and sewers and makers) in narrowing down the many batting choices to those that will deliver their desired results (this is a fun preview of the lecture available to your group!).

We talk about the various fiber types and the pros and (potential) cons of each, discuss which battings are best for which types of projects, and share information on caring for your projects once they’re completed.
