Hobbs Batting Logo

Founded by Carey Hobbs, Hobbs Bonded Fibers is a Waco-based company that traces its roots back to 1970, when the company manufactured cushioning material for the bedding and furniture industries. The company operates two plants in Waco, Texas, with facilities covering 425,000 square feet.

Hobbs has created high quality quilt batting for both home and commercial quilters since 1978 (37 years), and manufactures the most complete line of quilt batting, pillow inserts and fiberfill in both packaged and roll forms. Their Heirloom Collection of batting has become one of the top selling brands in the United States, and has nine different varieties, including wool and organic cotton.

The next workshop will be "Machine Quilting" by Judi Tyrrell, on Wednesday, Sep 2, 2015 at the Georgetown Library.

Judi won the Fine Machine Quilting award for her Fresh Posies quilt in the guild's 2013 show, and is the author of Beginners Guide to Machine Quilting.  She currently does custom quilting for customers, as well as quilting her own award-winning quilts.

In this class, Judi will show you how to set up and use your home machine so you can quilt your own quilts. She will pass along many of the tips and techniques she has gathered over her years of experience working with quilts large and small. If you have already tried machine quilting, she can help you improve.
