    Down Stuffing

    Okay so, a search of 'down', 'stuff', or similar yields a huge number to results with nearly none of them having to do with actually stuffing down. That said, is there a trick to this? I'm three baffles into a 12 baffle topquilt and am finding things very difficult. I can keep on going, but if there's something I don't know, PLEASE TELL ME!

    Ok, so am I supposed to make a 'deep' space with the mesh in my vacuum hose? I thought it was only for chasing down clusters so I made mine flat, basically stretched over the hose end. But, that makes sense to make a deep "cup" for the down to collect in. Then I could just put the hose in the down bags and suck up a lot at once. That's genius. Thanks for the link. Can't wait to get home from work to finish it! Will post pics.
