I hope this isn't weird posting on MSQC forum???

Info.... We buy large amounts ROT or cases of bolts from Roc-Lon - they have the softest Avalon Supreme white (this makes great men's shirts and ladies blouses SOFT great 100% cotton), but anyway --- they have 90" and 108".

You must buy at least 1 bolt (ranges 15 -20 yards depending), but is very reliable fabric. I make many of our clothing from their solids - They don't have a huge selection of prints but for quilt backings you will LOVE their price on the 108"!!

Contact Doug Jenkins - their prices are extremely nice (and tell him Debbie of WenchesAtWork sent you)...

They mainly sell to manufactures or wholesale (with a biz license, and/or you can find their fabrics marked up at Joann's)... but are moving into Consumer now YIPPIE!

If you are interested call 888-852-7533 or Email djenkins@roc-lon.com

Example of prices...

90 #5125 Wide Permanent Press, Muslin Unbleached, 100% Cotton 15-Yard Bolt or 100-Yard ROT $3.04

107"/108 #5127 Wide Permanent Press Muslin, Unbleached, 100% Cotton 15-Yard Bolt or 100-Yard ROT $3.60

90 #5126 Wide Permanent Press, Muslin Bleached, 100% Cotton 15-Yard Bolt or 100-Yard ROT $3.09

107/108 # 5128 Wide Permanent Press Muslin Bleached, 100% Cotton 15-Yard Bolt or 100-Yard ROT $3.70

Never found any store or online place that can match their prices for the 90" or 108" backing!!!

I know they carry solid colors, Green (a dark hunter green), Black etc... but their website hasn't been updated in a while. I call when I'm ready to make my large order in October for our clothing biz, and Doug sends me current price sheets, colors etc...

Hope this helps ?

You said nice for a womans blouse, but how does it compare to the White fabric Jenny sells here? The one the Jelly Rolls are out of and such? I bought some white, like to buy 3 yards at a time to stock up for future projects, sometimes Jenny puts it on the DD and other time I just buy it at the price it is about 6.00. But, it's quilting fabric. Not thin at all.

This fabric is like a high quality muslin. I've used it several times as backing fabric. It has a nice, tight weave and wears well. I don't think it is as heavy as the Kona or Bella solids.

I would put any of this fabric into a quilt. In fact I've used many of the solids into quilts. It is not thin but not thick like weavers cloth. I use most of it for my backings but have cut scraps into quilts also. Washes the same as the quilting cotton I put into the quilts. ah found it - I used the solid hunter green in 108" on my falling charms back.

I think this is a wonderful way to put quality backing on and still keep the cost down. Thank you!
