    Re: How is this possible?!!!

    I would love to shop my LQSs more. However, the local ones that are left (we have had several larger LQS stores close recently), have very limited lines/selections of fabrics. The other issue are...

    Re: Warm and natural batting difference

    Joann's carries the bamboo batting online -- occasionally in the store. Massdrop has also had some of the bamboo batting as specials every once in a while. It is also available on Amazon.

    Re: Warm and natural batting difference

    I have been told that the Warm and White also has a reduced loft as well due to the washing/bleaching process.

    Re: EQ7 - Do you use it? Is it worth it ($)?

    Check around on the pricing. I was able to find EQ7 on Amazon for a significant discount. :icon_happy: There is a steep learning curve, but there are a lot of sources for help and tutorials.
